I've got plans in the works for a sort of removable door for both a hex tarp
and rectangular tarp. I hope to have that done with some experience
gained in July.
I use the same thread for silnylon as for other nylon,
polyester thread I got from Speer's, a huge (but now
diminishing) cone of it.
Grizz, what are you using for attachments on your removable doors? I've been tossing ideas around in my head for something similar for extenders/doors on the Clark Tarp, and trying to keep to the k.i.s.s. protocol. I am trying to avoid zippers or velcro - maybe using hook and bar or ring and bar attachments. They would be infinitely lighter than anything else I can think of, and easier to sew. Any comments? I know you've used the hook and eye approach on your UQ.
