    Door Kit Sharing!

    Ok. Marty made up a couple of kits for a few of us to "play with". Now that we've worked out most of the details, we are going to send these prototypes back to Marty and he is going to make the changes to them so they will be just like the ones he now sells. So....to make a long story short...

    Anyone that would like to "try out" the door kit, put your name here and we will send it to you to see if you like 'em. Try 'em out for a while, then forward them on to the next person on the list.

    Sounds fun, right?

    So, just make a post expressing interest in trying out the doors and they will be shipped to you at no charge. The catch is...You have to ship them to the next person on the list at no charge.

    Who's first?

    Disclaimer: We are going to need some kind of rules, so here they are:

    You must have at least 50 post to participate.
    You must agree to ship the doors to the next person on the list via Priority Mail with a Tracking#.
    The tracking# needs to be PMed to the recipient, and Spaceweaseal or Caveman (just so we can keep track of these things)
    You are limited to 3 weeks with the kit.

    Nice!

    I would like to try them out, but I do not have my tadpole anymore. If they would work for other similar tarps (which they should) I will get in on it, but I will defer to folks that actually have a tadpole.

    Jayson....Marty will acutally be doing the first "shipping", so you may pm him to see if he minds spending the extra cash to get it to you. (you may have to help out with shipping, but I don't see why our buddies from the North shouldn't be able to get in on this)

    Half....I don't see why you shouldn't be able to get in on it either. The door kit should fit many of the "tadpole sized" tarps. I think it would be great to find out what tarps these things will fit.


    There will be two sets floating around, so we will have to pay attention where they are at.

    Caveman, happy tadpole owner here, getting ready to order a new tadpole also. I would like to TRY the door kit. Is this the single, two-part door we saw a while back? If there was a ever a single piece one made, I would prefer to try that one.
    THANKS!

    Swank...These are both the two piece doors. I'm not sure if there is a swankfly mod prototype out there yet

    This is a great idea. Please include me as I would like to try them on my tadpole. I am thinking this might be a good winter rig answer.
