The awning wasn't new, but was considerably better than the one I had (no duct tape). It fit perfectly. Turns out it is the roof portion of one of those "add a room" screen additions. There's the "half-zippers" all around it. Too bad the other parts are missing. The end tube was comprised of three pieces of electrical conduit and was heavy. The larger and lighter aluminum tube from my old awning was too big to slide into the sewn-in sleeve, but it had a channel in it to hold a spline. Since that's the way the whole awning attaches to the pop-up, I figured it would hold the tube on the end of the awning. I had some 3MM wire cable that worked great for the spline. I just ran it through the sleeve, started it in the groove on the aluminum tube and it went on pretty easily. Thanks Crawford.

Now to put the gutters on, and cut the steel safety bars to size before the trip to Harrison Bay in a week and a half.

I also finished up Alan's Aluminum Walker converted to Portable Camp Stove Stand. His top is made of 5/8" plywood, since the bottom of the stove won't get hot enough to damage it, and I already had the plywood. I'll bring it to you at Harrison Bay, Alan. Tacky is as tacky does! Recycle!

Alan, exactly how long is the awning track on your PUP? I think I can cut my old awning down (eliminating the torn part) to fit your PUP. If so, I may be able to do it before this trip and bring it to you.

Ahhh, I thought you cleaned Mr. Trimmer out. It would be neat to have the other parts, even if they need repair.

Richard that was just the first cleaning. You know how it is, when you start to throw things out, you find alot of things that you say, "I might just need this" Even though you'll never use it. Razz
