hal, I would be interested in how you made your mesh panels I am switching over from rigid Graphic Display panels to the mesh ones for my Light Dome tent. Cost to purchase from Light Dome , Stabilizing bars plus roll up mesh would be about $700. plus shipping if I could do it for much less that would be great any help is appreciated, Virginia

Hal, thanks for the info and the pix, it looks very professional. one last question what were your costs into it?  Yes I can sew , have done my own custom window treatments for years , as a matter of fact I sewed my first set of panel covers for the graphic display panels plus  6 for my friend, ( never want to do that again) I don't have luck with groments as I have used them on various projects in the past, they always pull off of the fabric after a while. I used them on my Light Dome Flap to adapt it for a shade flap out of the back of my tent and two are off already. Any hints to keep them on.  Thanks, Virginia
