Also ended up having to use a ty wrap to secure the front of the bracket to the drive shaft cover. Hated to do it, but it just shook too bad. I'm sure some heavier material could have been used to make it more rigid, but I was using what I had.





Spray painted an old drawer pull that I had in the hardware cabinet and used it for a handle.



Painted the inside black to match the color of the fabric.

Other than that, I used some black shoe polish to color the edges of the fabric that I cut. A tiny bit of the felt backing was showing. Really didn't look bad the way it was, but the black shoe polish applied with a q-tip worked really well to hide the felt.

Turned out pretty good I think and works really well. I may have to attach a piece of flat plastic on the inside of the handle to keep the wind from opening it at high speeds. It stays closed really good around town, but I've noticed at about 70-75 mph the wind will start trying to open the door a little. I've never seen it come all the way open, but just in case I may add a latch.
