I'm looking into your idea of creating a tarp for my Ford 8N tractor. You can find them for sale online but they're a bit pricey at around $200.
Thinking about digging out my old sewing machine and putting one together, that would be about as simple as a sewing project as they get.
They're posts over on yesterday's tractors forum where they're using tarps and that would be a pretty good material for the sewing project, however, trying to pick a tarp that's going to have some longevity might be an issue?
I've purchased tarps before to cover outdoor equipment, but tarps didn't even last a year before falling apart in the sunlight. I could alternatively utilize material that will stand up to the weather (and have some longevity), and then waterproof it. Plenty of DIY YouTube video showing that approach lol
