Old Hammock = bakkini top

Hey guys just wanted to share a cool idea.. Hardly worth it if you had to buy a new hammock, but I was driving down the road one day and saw that my neighbor was throwing away this hammock. Well, my mind got thinking... And before long I had it finished... Took about 30 min and 6 grommets. I couldn't believe it.. It fit perfectly.. Didn't even have to cut it.. And it's very quiet too. It lets just enough light through, yet plenty of shade.. Here are some pics I took before using a piece of para cord to tighten it up a bit...

How did you attach to the header bar or did you? i thought about something like this, but using an old trampoline mat instead. Good job!

Sweet! That's the kind of thinking that went into Jeepin' before it got so commercialized.

Just a grommet and s piece of paracord tied to the little windshield loop above the rear view mirror...
I doesn't really even need it.. The win doesn't catch it.. The wind creates a good size bubble over the front part of the bikini top..
