She was soon in Walmart and found some neoprene sunglass holders they were closing out for under a dollar each, just a bag to hang on your dash really, but they were large enough and were even black. She took a few measurements and did her magical cut, snip, and sew routine and within a few minutes I had a great pair of seal savers...
Don't use gauze (can't imagine how that would hold up in weather...) Use neoprene. Maybe find a buddy with an old wet suit to cut up..? Your girlfriend's suit might look better with a little trimming in a few select spots? Now that my mind is fully in the gutter , spandex might even work, but I suspect it would not hold its shape and fold under during fork travel.

I am going to Durhamtown next week and that place is notorious for causing fork leaks.

Pair. Check out their web site. they have some other stuff too.
You suggest the long one or the conventional ones?

I just pulled a set off my mountainbike. I had not cleaned them for a while. The dirt and grit is all over the savers. It acts like a sheet of sandpaper on the forks. Not a good idea!
