hey Chelica815.. yah actually I just checked how far Pacific is from my place and its heh a bit far.. about 45 mins away..
installation I followed years ago was thishttps://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_57014_0_collapsed_5__1.html#57014
As far as measurements just try out the ones listed there ^^
Its all guess and check. Heck the sheet is huge enough for mistakes ...
all can be found at home depot
1. Wire cutters
2. chrome spray paint? (got my from kragen =p)
3. I'd recommend the Black UV zip ties
5. that wire stuff which is used for walls i think and they put concrete on it. I got mine from Home Depot. Its a HUGE sheet that I had to fold it in half to put it in the trunk .
It would probably be stocked on the floor and around the screen door isle and plastic roofs I think it was..
GTQuentin might be able to give you better help as to where he got his...
