Great looking canvas job!  I am also on a "beer budget" and would appreciate any details of your work so I can attempt to make my own.

Thanks in advance,

Spencer

Thanks all.  I have a volunteer for the canvas so I'll get everything on order and post a step by step.

Also, anyone have a photo of a M16 canvas from the back side?

Thanks,

Paul
