    Mamba jamba doors, any ideas?

    I'm thinking about making my own door kit for my tarp. I know Brandon makes a door kit but I'd like to up my sewing skills with a project like this. Anyone have any input as to materials list, a pattern or any sites or videos that could help me out. Thanks in advance.

    here is a pattern for tarp doors i got from another member here on the forums (WLMiller54) i had to tweak the measurements just a bit for the bmj but it should give you the idea and get you close



    the line that forms the bottom on the flat triangle at the top of the image is your "hinge" so that whole pattern basically get turned on it's side when you put the doors on your tarp

    I have made several of these now, and am using the same exact measurements above. For me they work great on my Mamba Jamba.

    Boot, let me know what tweaks you put in. I would be interested in adjusting mine if I am missing something. Thanks

    here is a pic of one of brandons doors he makes for the bmj



    the "hinge" is longer, where the pattern shows 56" the warbonnet is 64" most of the other measurements are pretty close, the 29.75" measurement then goes up to about 33"

    when i made mine i just made them a bit bigger like brandon, when i made my first set i used ripstop not silnylon, worked fine, but then 2 pairs of warbonnets came up for sale on here cheap so i snatched them up and that is what i use now, i don't really think you are missing anything, i just went a touch bigger is all
