    FS: DIY silnylon tarp

    i've got an extra DIY tarp i'm not using. it's a pretty big tarp on its own,..i think i made the ridge line 13.5' and the bottom is around 10'. its not a cat cut on the bottom and there are tie outs on each corner and the ridge line.
    i was messing around with making some doors and using neodymium magnets but when you put the doors on (they don't completely close the front as i started with a 10yd piece of 1.1 silnylon) the lower attachment pull loose because the neo's are sheared apart. it would be better if the tension was applied inline with the retention force. i'm also including a figure 9's. the material was 1st from seattle fabric's about 9 months ago.

    tarp with lines
    half doors
    magnets
    figure 9's
    stuff sac

    tarp alone with stuff sac is about ~20oz, everything is about 2lbs

    asking $80 shipped paypal, first PM gets it

    the doors are okay,..concept was interesting but it adds some weight. they would probably work better if someone finished it off with velcro or maybe snaps.
