*like*. Good stuff guys. Im taking notes. One thing I learned this week is buy good quality nylon zip ties for the bottom and not the cheap plastic ones that are so readily available!

The strong, wide, nylon ones can be hard to find ... I've been burned by the cheaper plastic ones breaking too.  When stitching the bottom panels together, there's a lot of stress on them ...
