    Idea with my fast fly

    I realized when I came on this forum how pathetic my tarp is compared to some of you guys tarp so I decided I am going to work on upgrading the tarp. I am planing on making it like this

    I am thinking of using grommets and sbiners for the sides but I don't know about pullouts though. I do hate sewing and I am horrible at it to. Any ideas.

    Skip the grommets. They just dont work well with thin fabric. If your bound and determined use webbing as your tie out points.

    Best advice I could offer is save yourself the headache and hassle of remodifyng your present tarp, especially being "injector challenged". Save your tarp for a dining room tarp or fair weather camping.

    Adding a set of grizz beaks or doors could help. Or diy some beaks. The beaks are nice for sealing off one or both ends. And there is no sewing involved, if you order them from 2qZq (good folks).
    Or save up for a new tarp. The $ you'll spend on grommets and misc. items can instead be saved towards a full blown tarp.
