Rule #1: I am cheap.

Rule #2: You are cheap.

Now that's out of the way,  how can I make a thin, stowable, plastic rain cover that I can draw taught enough to not allow water to pool? And cheap enough to dispose of without too great a loss?

Typical S3 size box is 12x5x4

I am cheap, and what I've learned in life is a proper tool for the job is cheaper and easier in the long run than DIY alternatives. 

 

Any water damage that would occur during trial and error of trying to keep it out with a DIY solution will be more costly than proper cover to begin with. 

 

Also the cost of the cover isn't a sunken cost for the time of ownership. You'll get most of the money back if when you decide to sell it later on whenever you might sell the car. True cost is the the little difference in depreciation which is likely $50 to $100 in the end. 

 

That's my advice.

On race weekends after unloading the car I cover the car with a plastic tarp from Home Depot, which has a bunch of grommets which I use to tie down to the car. $14.48 :). It is ugly though.

I get cost.  For me, protection from a pouring is well worth $300.  Im thinking that something that does the same job, or can be fashioned into, can be made much cheaper.

 

The cheapest thing I know is painters drop sheeting for coverage of floors.  If I could find the right adhesive, I could easily fab up a perfectly fitted cover.  Materials costs would be under $10.

So, once you have the string attached to the middle gromet on one side, you need to go under the car the secure it to the other side.  Just slip the string into the split ring of your key chain and toss it across under the car.  Should always come within reach of the other side.
