    Here it is in all its side pulls are 6 inches too high glory. I didnt factor in the extra fabric width of 4'' on each side, of the 64'' wide fabric.

    All went well, even though USPS miss sent my package, so I had to pick it up.

    I didnt over-build it, put a cat cut between the side tie-outs, and used doubled over sil for reinforcements at the tie out points.

    So, all that's left is to move the side pulls down a couple of inches from the ridgline and seal it up with silicone. Probably going to add 1.5 feet of fabric to one door on each side to close it off properly.

    Thanks for the help fellow hammockers.

    Fixed the pull outs. What a difference it makes.

    Before and after.

    I like it. How long did it take you to cut and sew?

    Thanks. It took me about 4 hours including re-positioning the side pulls.

    That looks real nice! Great job.

    If you had slightly longer doors, do you think
    That you would get better closure on the doors?
    I ask, because I see an inch gap.

    Longer doors would close the gap, hanging it higher will close the gap too.
