It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.
very Nice hopefully they will decide to continue I want to get mine sewed on but would have to wait till summer
Just thought I'd add a few more thoughts on this mod. I received a question from another member how I liked the doors on the Superfly closing straight across flat on the ends rather than angling outwards in vestibule fashion. It looks to me like the new Superfly tarps Warbonnet sells now with permanent doors are designed more to be pitched outwards like the vestibule style door mod 2Q & ZQ offer on the MacCat Deluxe tarp. The removable door kit is really designed to close straight across. They kind of can be angled outwards like a vestibule but you won't get full closure that way like you get running them straight across. A thing to keep in mind is that the Superfly is I believe termed by Brandon at Warbonnet as a "Hex cut" style tarp vs. a "Cat cut" style tarp like the OES MacCat tarps. The Cat cuts angle in much more extreme than the hex cut of the Superfly so honestly you really don't need the extra space by not having vestibule style doors.
Wish i could have posted this earlier. But work, and weather (tree toppling winds) have prevented me getting outside.
Anywhooo...I was bestowed the honor of having my Superfly modded by ZQ. As usual her work is top notch.
Living in a wet corner of the Pacific North West rain season lasts from January 1st to December 31st. As such the Superfly is my go to tarp to keep me dry. What i found is that i always packed my removable doors everywhere.
While i see removable doors has its place, it's not for me.
During strong winds i have had them blow off.
Ever try to install the doors at twilight, or via head lamp. I have really good night vision, but i'm willing to bet good money the the majority of the population cannot see the difference between dark grey and black in the dark, including me.
And finally i'm not one to bother with spending the time neatly wrapping up the shock cords, and just cram the doors in the stuff sack. Well this means untangling all the shock cords, again not an easy task in the dark.
Sewn on doors solve a lot of fussing for me.
I see on 2QZQ's new web site there are now officially offering the mod.
