Title: Peppy's Spray Dodger
Post by: Peppy on May 29, 2011, 07:43:21 PM
I had a vision last week and couldn't get it out of my head till I built it. So I built it.

A 'y' type frame upside down and kind of inside out.

This is almost what it'll be like- with window material above.

inside view. The travel cover posts will support the dodger. I didn't have enough slide track today, but thats what it'll mount to, to let it slide forward to rest on the nose.

Hot damn! I'll show the finished product as soon as it's made. Giggedy! Nice when things work!

My sewer loves me. Also evidenced by the quick turnover on the pattern. <3

Incase you didn't see it from enough angles

The main surprise of the evening was that the front/lower bar doesn't really do anything. When it's pulled down it does make tension but it looks real good without it too. Always learning never stopping. This is really the sweet spot of the enterprise. The lever the tension's made from.
