Re: Your thoughts on a Devon'esk day awning repro' please?

So with the awning in the rolled up position hanging on the side of the van, is it ok to drive with like this? I'm sure it would be low speed but open road? I figure there's an easy way to find out or a hard way :oops:

Re: Recovering Devon seats

Yes that chap "Barndoorz" is making squab covers with the Ardo Turq for his 66 Torvette (originally had Turq duracour) I took a faded sample of his original to a big fabric showroom, and after looking at hundreds of samples the Ardo come in as the best match. Gota say i'm really pleased with the end...

Re: Recovering Devon seats

Just another option for those looking for Duracour look-a-like. I used Ardo Turquoise made by Warwick http://www.upholstery.com.au/ardo-warwick/741/

Re: 65 Devon Caravette

The fabric is duracour "lookalike" which i found locally. It's not perfect but it's not bad and a lovely shade of turquoise (which is one great 60's colour). Yes mad matz tiles, some random polka dot curtain fabric bought on line from the USA, and 60's cosmic spiral cushions to complete the package....

Re: 65 Devon Caravette

I never wanted to sand the b'jesus out of the woodwork and have it looking new...had to get new squabs and curtains of course, and f...

Re: Devon's Downunder...

Cheers Graham, bumpers are correct for later 65 as i figured out a while ago rear slash bumpers ran out first, that's why you see some 65's with slash front, diamond rear. I've got the 14" wheels but far prefer the look of 15"/crossply's over 14"/radials...I like big boots standing tall! I have a th...

Kind of suits it don't you reckon? Only problem is it's the wrong colour, old plates were silver on black, not black on white - looks too modern :(
