Default Outside cover for residential AC

The outside cover for my residential AC is getting brittle and no longer fits properly. Is this a standard piece that I should be able to buy on-line or will I have to have one fabricated at a fiberglass shop?

I haven't had any luck finding it online and thought I would ask here!

I noticed that no one has replied so...........here in Phoenix we have AC units that sit on the ground. I'm guessing that's what you're talking about? Our house has 2; a split system....even though it's not a really big house. We do cover one that get's a lot of pine tree droppings during the off season. We obviously don't need much protection from rain/moisture since we're in the desert. Anyways, for the one we covered my wife sewed a cover from an old car cover. You might be able to find a shop which would do something similar in your area.

I use a piece of 1/2" plywood to cover the top. Keeps the fall leaves and snow out.

Find an auto upholstery shop, they should be able to make you a cover out of a marine vinyl or a tarp vinyl.

Default ac american cruiser

hi rj. i see you still have yours too. mine is a 2000, has a hinge and i keep it open with a hook. i've thought to remove that cover so i can run the a/c while moving. can you do that?
anyway, to address your situation, i'd consider painting a nicely finished piece of plywood with a gasket around the perimeter for an easy fix.

Oh, I didn't see the pic. Maybe a metal shop?
