Canvas covers

Post  lynnr on Thu 11 Apr 2013, 12:30 am

Hi All

Looking for a supplier of medium weight waterproof canvas to make a cover for Crystal or traditional style cover panels to hang from the canopy. Needs to be medium weight so does not flap too much while travelling so it does not scuff the paintwork and will take a good lashing down!

Do you have a sail maker up there who could run some up for you?

If not have seen these guys advertise, but no idea if they are any good so usual checks apply.

Edit.....helps if I add the link

Hi,

We organised a cover to be made for the 4" Agricultural engine and would be more than happy to do thew same for the Showman's or Road Loco.


Excellent quality and a proper fitted to suit cover. Think the Agricultural engine one was around 100 though and as the Showman's will need more material i image it'll be dearer.

If enough people want one we'll get the guy over to measure up.

That would be worth while!

I am up for that as there is nothing local (less than 120 miles) Lead time would need to be short as I need for the 12th May

Would you credit it. Was out down the industrial estate on a steel purchase errand and spotted a little "new" company. They do Tarps.
Dropped in and they can do the canvas cover made to measure.

Mick Cox made my cover for Madeline. Don't forget to include the seat at the back in any covers you have made.
