Are there any cheap tank covers...

... for getting work done by less than or equal to 5'-10'' tall mechanics (with tank scratching boots on)?

Jeez, custom tank covers are $180 to $220. I just want a simple cloth cover. Maybe I can tie a sheet or a long sleeve cotton shirt around it held on with knots. I really don't want anyone pushing my bike around either since it will go down hard if it starts to tip, while they are rushing (time is money.)

I've seen $50 bras which cover halfway up to the gas cap: but not for our bike.

Unfortunately, most good value professional mechanics are 5'-10" or less

I put some of that clear 3M film onto my tanks where wear happens.

Vinyl wrap or Plasti-Dip it!

Changes the colour and offers protection.

I have been thinking about changing the Black colour of my tank to white so it does not get hot in the Aussie sun.

I'm thinking about a DIY Vinyl wrap or Plasti-Dip.
both have cons...
wrapping can fail and start to lift at the edges.
Plastic dip is just is not that tough but can be reapplied very easily.
