**Mods feel free to move this if it is in the wrong place** I wanted an awning for my Xterra, however, I did not want to pay out the rear for something I can get at Home Depot for $40. So I went to Home Depot (and Harbor Freight) to get my supplies.. shown below! - 3 X 10' of 1" PVC pipe - 6' piece of whatever that steel is called - Hack saw - Grommets - Camo tarp - 3 X 2 1/4" exhaust clamps - 2 X 90* PVC Elbows - 4 X PVC end caps (You only need to, I'm an idiot) - Gloves from HF, because they were free! - Bicycle Pump - Bungee Cord - Bicycle lock - Duct tape - Shop towels (for when you cut yourself with the hack saw) Take your exhaust clamps and put them on the roof rack. Put the back side on first, then add the steel rail to the front and tighten down the nuts. I went ahead and chopped the extra bolt off, because I want to be able to roll the tarp up an strap it down, and those would have gotten in the way. I then added more grommets to the tarp, because 3 on one side was insufficient. I did not get pictures of that because I hit my finger with a BFH. Once I got the extra grommets on I took some hardware I had left over from another project and bolted the tarp to the rail in 7 places. I cut a 6' piece of PVC, because that's how long the steel is. I zip tied that piece of PVC to the tarp. As you can see it added two sets of grommets on one side for that reason. Admittedly, I need to find a better way than zip ties but it will work for now. After that I added the 90* elbows to the PVC pipe, and cut two lengths of pipe that are 6'5" long for the legs. Once I put those on I set it up to see how it works! I'm going to get some paracord and stakes so I have anchors for it, but I didn't feel like running to the store again. Hopefully you all enjoyed this, and copy the **** out of this! I know you all going to Moab could use a nice awning for taking a rest in the shade after running some trails! Oh yeah, here it is all rolled up!
