The second BONuS (Barely Off-Shell Nucleon Structure) experiment seeks to expand the detection range of the neutron structure to Bjorken x up to 0.8. For that, a new radial time projection chamber needs to be built, which is twice as long as the original one. The goal of this work is to make prototypes for the conducting mylar shell that generates a uniform radial electric field for the chamber, and to develop a specially designed apparatus and procedure that will reduce the wrinkles in this ultra-thin cylindrical mylar shell.
