Made and finally tested a 7.5×9 0.51oz/yard DCF tarp. Final weight is 166g or 5.85oz.
I bonded the panels with Loctite U-09FL, used mostly DCF for all the lineloc and guyout points (thanksfor the tip John), and overall I love the thing.
Here’s a link to my instagram story where I walk through most of the process of creating this tarp on video:https://www.instagram.com/stories/highlights/17866726708314965/
I also made a DCF / mesh bug pyramid with a splash proof front to make this setup even more weather resistant. I’ll post that soon.
