I need a cover for a single hole canpoy for my Pitts S2S. It's got a sloped windscreen. Anyone know where I can get one?

Don't know what might be available commercially, but if you have a custom interior shop (as in hot rods) they could sew you up one with some flannel lined material. Tent and awning shops are a good source as well.

I just had an estimate for a two holer Skybolt without canopy from a local shop and it was $650 with me providing the fabric.

As I posted on another thread, Bruce's Custom Covers, the price is pretty good in comparison to what you have been quoted.

We had one for a Staggerwing Beech and it was a nice cover and fit really well, only thing was the material it was made from was quite heavy duty and it didnt fold up very compact. Might pay to discuss this with them if space is an issue. the one for the Stag had the N number on it and also came with a duffle bag for stowage.
