Interior Cover

Has anyone tried one of these? Iíve removed the soft stop from my gutted track car and was looking for something to cover interior if it rains and while towing on open trailer.

I had one I bought for my track car, but I tried towing my car with it on and it got absolutely destroyed after about a mile. It also wouldnít protect the car from rain unless the top was on (weight of the water would cause it to collapse without a roof supporting it.

That is what I was afraid of. Iíve removed the convertible top (which was trashed anyways) and plan to remove window glass and mechanisms from doors. Just trying to figure out a way to keep it relatively dry in the interior if caught out in the rain while on open trailer and on the occasional jaunt around country roads. Anybody have any other ideas? Custom top that snaps in place?
