Kelty Vortex 2

I recently bought a Vortex 2 tent on Ebay. It appears to be an older model that does not have the Flybox feature for attaching the fly to the tent. Does anyone know how to attach the fly to the tent. Thanks.

I also had a Vortex 2 before the Flyboy addition. Mine had nylon buckles to clip the fly to the base of the tent. Also had about an eight inch nylon tie on the underside of the tent peak. That tie was handy to go around the intersection of the two poles and keep the fly centered during set up.

If you use the fly with the 'footprint' (and without the tent) that peak tie hold the poles to the fly at that point.

There may have been short velcro pieces on the fly to wrap about the poles (About where the Flyboy are now??) I may be wrong on the velcro, no longer have the tent.
