First DIY tarp attempt
So I have a HH and found the stock tarp to small, I knew I wanted a all around tarp one I can use for all types of weather and still have my privacy when I need it. witch lead me to a rectangle tarp. I thought I can make one! I will get what I want how I want and if I mess it up I'm the only one to blame & off I went! I got 7 yards of 60" wide poly ripstop nylon. Cut in half and then sewed the 2 pc together.
I used seam seal tape to seal the ridgeline. Hope it works
in porch mode
I used camo grossgrain for tieouts
pockets for line
still a bit heavy and bulky but better then a blue tarp.
storm set up.
I made the simplest tarp I could. I still need to put the center tieouts on and do a little tweeking. stiching needs work not the prettest but as long as it does it job I'm happy.
Great job! Love the digital tiger stripe.
Looks great man. How are you going to seal the tarp for waterproofing?
thanks. had fun working on it.
it already water proof but for the seam on the ridgeline I used seam sealer tape.
Oh ok. Sorry, you said ripstop up above, that's why I was asking how you were WP it. Cool idea with the guy line pockets.
Excellent work, that thing looks great!
Held togeather great in a small thunder storm with wind last night! :D
Isn't it nice when you make it and it WORKS!! Wooo Hooo!!
