This is my first "how to" and not sure how to put the text and pics together so if this looks screwed up sorry. I was looking around the forums and found this write up and thought I would add a little to it. I cant rem the name of who first did this; I only want to add to their idea and not steal it.
Anyone that goes camping knows that para cord has many uses and can be a lifesaver. While you could just throw a roll into the Jeep and be done with it, I am just adding this to bring a personal touch into storing the cord.
With all the different colors that anyone can get in para cord now days, this can be personalized to the extent of matching the interior and exterior color with the cord, favorite football colors, anything you can think of. In this project I used black as the base wrap and olive drab as the top wrap.
The measurements for the front door handles are: base wrap approx 23 feet, and the top wrap approx 10 feet. These lengths can be different depending on how tight or loose you wrap the cord and the pattern you chose to wrap the handles. I wrapped mine very tight.
With the base wrap, I started on the left side of the handle (starting on the left was easier for me being right handed; you can start on either side). I made a clean cut on the cord and burnt the end then tied a knot. I forgot to get pics of wrapping the base but they both start and end the same.
I started the wrap with the knot sitting on top of the handle and wrapping around to capture the knot. After catching the knot with one turn (or wrap), I just rotated the cord so the knot was on the back side and out of sight.
Write up and pics cont in next post
