Produring a lens cover for large (133mm) lens?
I recently bought a large projector at auction and it came with a 133mm diameter lens but no caps or covers.

Where do I find lens covers for such a large lens? The universal lens covers I've seen do not work up to that size. The manufacturer also does not sell the cover as a separate part (it's a 2007 Christie HD6K).

I'm tempted to make my own but I'm not quite sure how to make one that will be as resistant to impact or scrapes as an engineered one.
