    You can download the stl file for the 3d print of a lens cover for your P3 here.
    I will play around with different filament and once I find a good one I will give these away for the cost of shipping.
    This will be limited.

    Here is the final outcome, I adjusted the design to look similar to the old lens cap on the P2V+ ... 2015-05-08 14.55.42.jpg

    If you're lazy like me or just don't have a 3D printer here's a good cap made of flexible material for about $10 (includes 2 caps).

    You can get them in the following colors white, black or translucent red. His also includes two pull tabs for easy removal. Then if you deem necessary you can put a hole in one tab for a lanyard to attach the cap and gimbal lock, which is what I plan on doing.

    Looking good friend. The whole pic actually looks pretty great.
    You gotta love the subject matter though... ;-)
    And who here, doesn't? Hahaha

    You could also look at deodorant caps, after just two different caps I had one that perfectly fits!
