Tarp door dimentions for an OES MacCat Deluxe?
Anyone have a couple of minutes and a tape measure? Its raining cats and dogs outside so I'm not in the mood to pitch my own...
Also, what is typically used to fasten removable doors? Would 4-6 small snaps be suffcient?
I'm in the process of making 4 removable doors for my maccat standard,not easy because the standard is so small so how I started was to take dimensions and make a paper pattern to make sure it was going to fit the way I want it, and then make all 4 doors identical so they can fit anywhere without marking which one goes where. I ordered matching fabric to the tarp and got some grosgrain so they look like the real deal
I am going to use small #0 S beaners attached to the D rings top and bottom and have a overlap held with small bungee to the door on the other end like the warbonnet tarp in Shugs last spinn tarp video. I do not want to modify the tarp in any way to make these doors fit. Check out Shugs video , it will give you good ideas

Any pics or discription of how all of you made doors for your tarps?
If you look at Shug's video at about 5:20 it kind of looks like an close to an equilateral triangle (with some extra flap for the hinge). Maybe slightly longer on the hinge side. 5x4x4 or something.
