I made one door for my OES standard that I put on the windy side and it really helps with this small tarp. It's large enough that it will almost close the whole end when It's pitched tight. There are a few pictures of it in action in my album if you want see. It looks just like jazilla's drawing. I also made a grizzbeak clone but find it harder to use.

Getting the outline curve seems pretty easy to just lay it out and place the RS over it and trace it with chalk. I'm going to get an old bed sheet and do a mock up 1st to see how it fits and looks.
When you have your addon door ready, do you just lay it over the trim of the end and sew it together? Or is there something special which I might be missing.
I really like the simplicity of the single piece doors! Nice work Jazilla and Myles to go.
OneThing - The doors as shown look to be removable, they are not permanently attached (although nothing to stop you if you wanted to go that route). Clip the top and side to the RL and either clip/stake the corners and you're done.
