My awnings are getting old and worn. Need to be replaced. Does anyone here do such work? If so please send me an email.
Tyrone, those are cool! Where did you get them? Dave
what kind of material are they made of? are they waterproof or is this just for sun protection? The pattern is going to be difficult to match 100% particularly if it is waterproof material.. One option is to make it out of cotton and then coat it with a hydrophobic spray like "neverwet" or "campdry." It does not change the color or anything like that, just makes it repel water.
Do a search on "Sunbrella". That is the brand name of the material that is used today for awnings.
They sell it in many different colors, both striped and solid. Not cheap, but it may be the closest thing you can find today.
David, my dad when he restored the car found them. I have no idea where. The frame of the awning, by a turn buckle expands out to fit into the window track. Can drive with them out.
Nathan and Mike. Its like a cotton duck. A tight weave and soft. I'm guessing the pattern would be hard to match but ought to find something with the same idea.
Tyrone, there's a tent and awning place in St. Joe MO. not far from me. I can get you the phone number if you would like. Dave
