1968 280SE W111 Dust Cover?

We just had our coupe stripped to the skin and repainted (it looks like about ten million bucks instead of the usual million thanks the the new two-tone paint job (I'll see if I can get around to posting a few pictures)), and now we're in a new dilemma. Until the car gets a certain amount of use-patina, it will (and does) look like a piece of jewelry and we'd like to protect it from garage/workshop dust and grime. So what is the best kind of indoor, gentle (non-waterproof, non-scratchy) dust cover to get for a Bracq coupe? Ideally it would also be easy to remove, as the car is used a few times per week to stretch its legs, and exercise the machinery.

Thanks in advance!

Plain old poly-cotton should do just fine.

I bought a cover from Target to cover my 3.5 when it's in the garage. It fits like it was made for the car and it was only $20. Large size
BTW-where in WA do you live? We are thinking about moving to Whidbey Isl in 5-7 years

Pics - yes please!!
I have got myself a '67 w111 250SE/C recently that was factory 2-tone. Mercedes blue roof and papyrus body. But someone has painted it all papyrus. So I am trying to find pics of other 2 tone cars to see if I put it back to standard, or some other colour combination.
Cheers,
Drew in Oz

Thanks for the responses-- I believe we have the issue taken care of, and yes, I think I'll post some pictures tomorrow.
