Has anyone got a recommendation for a tarpaulin type cover to protect Citroen relay 2018 windscreen from leaves and birds mess at this time of year? Looked on Amazon and ebay...well crawled through them! Seems to be many which advertise as for vans but would be too small and not cover the gutter bit. Also some have magnets (scratch bodywork) and some have elastic. Any personal pointers would be appreciated!

I just use my long length silver screens but there are magnetic vent covers available on line

A recent tip on the motorcycle forum to prevent magnetic tank bags from scratching the paintwork was to simply put a small cloth between the magnets and the metal.

Get wiper blades vertical if possible by turning ignition off mid stroke - put large plastic bag under the wiper blades and tuck inside door shuts

Plastic sheets have been tried but blow off or move when windy which is when protection really needed. I have a silver screen but they do not recommend using it for this purpose ( apart from it being an expensive option) as mould can grow under it. There are fitted covers online but wondered if anyone had recommendations since the reviews are so unreliable. Will try mfw idea as this may anchor it better. Unless anyone else has actually purchased one. ;)
