    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.
    Hell, pulling it off no matter the result is a win in my book. How many folks can say they've built their own half-doors with soft windows?

    haha true true. If these windows are as effective as I'm hoping they'll be, I foresee myself running half doors most of the time.

    Wait a minute! She's home? And she's allowed you to bring the doors inside?! I've been barred from working inside after I burned the carpet.

    No she's at her in laws right now. I'm teleworking and will join them when I finish. She don't care though. No way I'm working in the garage right now, it's hot AF.

    If you make your hems doubled or tripled and no less than double sewn seams with the vinyl inside of all of that, then seal those, you won't have to worry about water intrusion and that will help reinforce those areas allowing you to pull the canvas taught. That will make it less flimsy at highway speeds. Nothing will make them absolutely not a little loose but you could add thin metal or heavy plastic Stays bent outward to add some resistance. Those Stays could be attached to the insides of the doors with the same snap system.

    That's the plan, all edges are doubled over, and will get double sewn. Prolonged highway speeds will take its toll on them otherwise.

    Right. I would add the seam sealer regardless. It's a silicone that will dry solid and keep it flexible but also add strength.

    Blue Lane Freight is just the marketing name for shipping stuff on the Fastenal trucks. I would make sure to get the tonneau cover on a pallet that fits it and then get it banded to the pallet, then several layers of stretch wrap to protect it. Going across the country, it's going to get banged up. If you build a wooden crate for it, that will be the best, plus you then get insurance on it for up to $2k.

    Our cousin and another couple have had 'rona baby's since the lockdowns and it sure sucks for family and friends wanting to come help lend a hand, clean, cook, etc. at their homes...so we've just been sending diapers that Nora has outgrown, since our cousin is about a size or two behind her these days.

    Our girl Nora was born 12/29 and I can't stand this isolation and what not...these are the times I'd be taking her to visit distant family, other friends and my coworkers...but 'rona isn't making that reality these days...
