    Got a new set of curtains for the van.

    I'm planning on using curtain track and the side ones I'm okay in fitting. But the tailgate curtains have me stumped as to the best way to fit them.

    Any suggestions

    This isn’t the best of photos to refer to.

    ours has two strips of curtain track, top of window and just below the window, the lower one should just be visible but you’ll get the gist of it from how the curtains sit.

    Same as Mark but as I made mine I used ali strip at the top and the boingy plastic string stuff at the bottom. You absolutely must fit the curtain to the tailgate so you can open the tailgate without a curtain flapping in your face. :)

    I disagree about fitting to tailgate. on hot days there’s nothing better than having the tailgate open but the curtains closed.

    I've got a standard track at top and have stitched little magnets at bottom.

    So i can have them down or up when tailgates open.

    I think my curtain track hangs from the headbanger locker.
