Does anyone know of a merchant selling / stocking premade pedestal covers for the 26x?

Im not sure all 26 X pedestal covers are created equal, My early X has a different pedestal from the later ones, not sure if the covers were designed as one size fits all.

Why not make a custom panel? Say, out of wood?

Well, don't I feel silly. I thought the OP was asking for a rigid cover for the openings in the sides of the pedestal, not a tarp. :(

I have used a Smoke Hollow smoker cover for years on our 2002X. We have a flip up table on the front of the pedistal and it fits like it was custom made.

That would probably be June 16, 2018; the original post that started this lively discussion. :)
