At the moment John there isn't anyone making them. Kevin of Staffs Metal Detectors has said he is going to have them made up but so far nothing. You could contact him: blackburns@19-masefield.freeserve.co.uk and see what the latest information is. The more people that contact him the more likely he is to get round to having them made I'd think. ::g

If you get one of these covers let us know what you think of them regarding fit and accessibility to the controls etc. John

Just to let you all know I have received a set of 'Protectors' covers and they seem pretty good, quite a tight fit on the control box of the MP but less so on the other models; the battery box cover is snug and does a good job. I haven't field tested it yet but I fully expect the covers to stand up well. They come in at £19.99 including delivery, my covers are black, but I believe they also do camo as well. Its been a long wait for covers for the Nexus but I am pleased the day has finally come. ::g

I'll take a few photographs and post as soon as possible.

Nice well made looking covers will get a set but will have to wait to the mp shows up and take it from there.Do you think they should have covered the coil cable fitting slightly to stop it getting water in it .
