John, check this forum concerning a cover plate but I would think it would not be a big deal to fabricate one from 1/8" steel. Drill some holes and put a gasket under it.

Thumbs up Thanks Donaldo

I followed your advice and "cut" the resistor out of the circuit. Is there any reason to replace the "low speed" resistor other than a quieter fan?
