    Makes more sense now! I take it ON is Ontario, Canada?

    Also if you can't get to a fed ex I can remake the drawings to be printed on 8.5x11 and include reference marks to help you print the pattern and line it up

    I have 1-1/2" on all the sides for hemming and rolling in webbing.

    Am I correct in reading this as the finished cloth will be 54" wide at head and foot & 42" wide in the middle (6" drop on either side)?

    Also that the raw fabric would be 57" wide before cutting?

    Sorry if this is dumb question that is obvious to everyone else.

    Thanks

    Yes, When I talk finished length I talk about the exposed fabric area. Not area taken up by the suspension. Most fabrics I've found come in 60" widths

    Not a dumb question. some times I don't explain stuff as well as I should

    Im working on trying to make the end cap fit better.

    I also found this application today... very useful!
    Parabola.exe

    because it calculates in real time you can figure the endcap, main body length and any point along the curve
