What if you've got undergarments that actually incorporate poppers or studs? Is that a problem?
Just the rear hatch left to do now but I need to make and put up the rails first.
I would imagine that then the curtain studs/poppers could be dual purpose
Only if magnets are incorporated into the curtains...
Add velcro on the tie-backs to magnets in the curtains and press studs on your wooly pants and it could get nasty in there.
This is why I always de-gauss my underpants before putting them on.
a change of diet might help...some vegetable fibres are well known for causing it.
magnets are fine, as long as it's not blowing a gale.
So as you can see we sleeved the curtain wire with matching fabric which works very well indeed
...and rear hatch pair done - all curtains made, I'm chuffed with them.
Half a dozen tie backs to make and some studs to fit next, I should finish the job.
After that I'll cover the rock and roll bits of the bed - easy as those 2 staple to the boards.
The rear needs a zip, i'm leaving that for last, I need all the experience I can get for that - I've watched a video.
This is what moms are for lol
Nice one @zedders. I cheated and bought my bus curtains from Delilah's. Should have them any time now. We opted for a slide door curtain with magnets so the curtain stays on the slide door when you open it.
Nice work @zedders
Even I got stuck in and have recently made my own curtains, starting with a how to guide from here on how to sew seats covers, and then few Youtube videos on how to use a sewing machine and make curtains. Well chuffed with mine aswell!
When I get around to updating my resto thread they'll be more evidence!
I think I might make tie-backs with the seat covering fabric for that co-ordinated look.
I know, I know, but start with a shiney exterior and there's no end to it is there?
Turnbuckles would be good for tie-backs?
Anyhow, I now have the excuse to make a cover. I have a piping foot and some leather which is tempting, but I think piping would be uncomfortable not to mention much harder.
Or I could do tops in fabric, sides in leather - I have whole hide or so. That's still a lot of work for a beginner.
Or the easy way - fold, stitch, cut off the extra, staple to board. This has to be the winner - get the two board ones done then spend the time on the rear one with the zip.
Filthy workshop, but at least I have space. A big table would have speeded things up a lot, I have to concentrate too hard on keeping the material out of the dirt.
Amazing job your doing Zed. Your talents never end.
Why thank you.
thats why i wont park next to some
Did you do the swivel seat? Is it easy to put in? Can this be done to the standard seats that came with van?
