Making good use of our IKEA shower curtain to block side sun at Anza-Borrego State Park. Added grommets to existing holes and used #10 bead chain for attaching. As you can see the curtain is a perfect fit and length for the side of the Carefree awning.

Cool, very similar to Gabi and Wolf's set up....I love your window awnings, did anyone ever put together a kit to sell to others?

Those are 3 pound lead halibut fishing weights covered in red "dipit". That is a tool product available many places. (You want to cover the lead. )

Hey MODERATORS....
Since I am traveling I didn't think about fogging out my license plate. Is there something built into the forum that recognizes plates and fogs them or did one of you do that for me

Cool!!!

Actually I'm working on the kit, but undecided about selling just the structural parts (with the cording to sew to your fabric) or just white fabric. Have all the prototype parts on hand.

I can't sew!

Not sure what you are seeing, but the license plate is perfectly legible to me.
Also, not sure what a scammer would gain by being able to read it.
