Re: need to make a cheep awning

Check around your area for companies that make/sell tarps for semi-trailers, many times they will have fair-sized shards, remnants & rejects they'll sell ya cheap. Extremely durable (albeit heavy) material. I got a few when I used to work for Ravens (...a lifetime ago...), and they're holding up extremely well.
