    I use a cover I got years ago that was a GM accessory. It was for a Chevy Cavalier. It fits nice and tight with stretch fit over front and rear bumpers.

    I’m using a Budge Size 2 from Walmart.  Good for in garage or short term outside.  Full bumper coverage and nice elastic fit. I’m thinking it was around 30 Bucks…

    California Car Cover, and I think Cover King, make cover for a 1952 MG TD.

    A cover for an original MG TD will most likely not fit your TDr.

    Back in 1983, I was able to order a custom made cover. The manufacturer sent me a diagram of a generic car, and there were multiple measurements for me to fill out. Cover came out perfect!

    I’ve searched around, and chatted with several current vendors, all to no avail.

    Okay … I did more research with some success.

    These guys say they can do a cover to your specific measurements: https://www.carcovers.com/

    The price will be in the $300+ range. When I had the custom cover made in 1983, the price was around $250. So I don’t think $300 is out of line over 45 years later.

    I briefly described the vehicle, a 1952 MG TD recreation, but with slightly larger dimensions than the original car. From the on-line rep:

    For a semi-custom fit, we would need some dimensions to help us determine what cover we could send for you. We would need Length (bumper to bumper), width, and height in inches. You can provide those dimensions in one of two ways once you have them: 1. You can call in the order 1-800-385-3603 and mention your vehicle with the dimensions. 2. You can put the dimension information in the “vehicle modification box” at checkout.
    For a fully custom fit, we will send you the dimension sheet for you to fill out to ensure the cover will fit to every body contour of your vehicle.
    Good luck!

    I had mine made at a local marine upholstery shop.  At the time they did both the convertible top and the tonnaeu cover.  The cost for both was about $850 about 20 years ago.
