    Might as well just install one of those suits from The Andromeda Strain, with the bellows that connect to the entry door.

    Great idea Bruce, thanks! SWMBO doesn't know it yet but she's got a sewing project coming.

    Hey Matt, sounds like a good idea as long as you guys can teach me how to use that D-bit grinder correctly.

    Hey Glug, you're showin' your age if you're referring to the original movie, not the remake!

    Come to think of it, maybe I should fix my SWMBO's old CPAP machine & use that.

    BBQ grill covers work great and can be had on the cheap. Boat motor covers work well too, but are harder to find cheap.
    Here is a good one (25" wide) for about $7:

    Hi Joel, I somehow missed your great tip. Looks like it's a good fit so I ordered one. SWMBO (and I) say thanks!
