    Nice!

    Great job, Dutch. I've been wanting a top cover for my BB but thought there was a way to make a simpler, if less bomb-proof, one than Finn's burrito oven cover. This looks like it! Nice "forest".

    Can't let the wife see this video - she's been after me to shave the goatee and if she saw you beardless, I'd never hear the end of it.

    The spelling on your tag line - isn't it "If you ain't Dutch, you ain't mutch!"?

    Thanks man, I was thinking about starting one with some old 1.9 I have, but opted out. I'm just going to order some 1.1. I was real confused how you had the omni tape but I get it now. Simple and easi to work with. Thanks for the video again.

    I thought I wasn't explaining it right, that's why I made the vid.

    That is correct but there are very few Walmarts that have material anymore. I did get the thread, mineral spirits and silicone caulk at walmart. If I didn't have a material providing walmart I would just get some good dwr from one of the cottage shops. It just happen the color really matches the BB real well.

    Omni tape came from someplace else. I have a reel of it and I don't remember where I got it from. Velcro would work just as well.
