Good morning Chuck,

I did the canvast cover holders using coat hanger wire, and bend them to fit. You can take them apart without fear of breaking.

very nice. The rest of us had better get going to catch up with you. The guy with the most toys at the end wins. Piping the smoke stack thru the fender must have been a challenge
