i too have thought of that idea
now to find the kevlar
and just in time, my 80 lb. lift, just gave out
at 100 feet, it was a good thing that i had a back up 65 lb. lift.
i have a new 80 lb. lift but do not want to use it until i have some protection around it.
if any body knows where i can get a sheet of kevlar please let me know. if i have to i will sew my own.
