    Default Shelter Half Bikini Top

    I figured you guys might like this. I figured I would give it a shot and see if I could save some cash and make my own bikini top. 10 bucks for the Shelter Half a few bucks for grommets and someone you know that will let you use their sewing machine. I am having issues posting pics, but there are a couple more in my album.

    Dude, I gotta say...that was pretty inspired! I doubt it would keep the rain out much, but it'll keep the sun off!

    Dang, now I'm gonna have to dig mine out when I get home!

    Little bit of Scotchguard should keep it water repellant! I made one kinda the same years ago for my FJ40, but it didn't look nearly as nice! Good Job!

    That's really cool. You get a bunch of 'em from DRMO and you could build yourself a little fortune.

    NIK WAX will water PROOF it. it's ten bucks a jug and is the best water proofing stuff I've ever used. It's wash in, can't see it or smell it. I use it on my snowboarding gear. There are different types for different materials.

    Very nice

    Default Getting older is amusing...

    As I woke this morning to the blast of another mortar (yea) It made me remember how different the Army was when I came in in 1990. The use of "shelter halves" or bivys is a long dead aspect I think.. isn't it? Shoot, most these folks would barely recognoze BDU pattern on a poncho liner! Heehee.
    Which makes me glad you chose this for you build..nothing like the smell and feel of good old fashioned canvas!!! And od green is the best color!!!
