Ok folks, here the latest news on my slide toppers! (I know everyone has been on the edge of their seat wanting to know the latest news!!)
How about that election eh??? lol All kidding aside.
I got my front curbside slide topper off, the one that was torn, took it down to my son to have him sew it up. Fortunately about all it did was tear the beading out of the canvas topper.
Easy peasy right? Well, we sewed the edge back up after switching the bead around from one side to the other since the beading that goes into the roller is smaller than the bead that goes in the track on the side of the coach.
This way I turn the fabric around and over so the oldest crappiest fabric is rolled up on the roller. Good thing right, thought of everything and all is going to be perfect.
Well was I ever wrong!! After re-installing the topper to my chagrin the material is stretched at both ends and the middle is tight as a drum and the ends are flapp'in in the breeze!! Doh!!!
If I could kick myself in the A$$ I sure would, why didn't I just take a simple measurement on both ends then trim off one edge to make the material square. Instead it's shaped like a stink'in hour glass.
Am I ever ticked at myself. Oh well, next spring I was going to take off the other slide toppers and go over all of them with new stitching. I will make sure they are square before sewing them up!!!
I guess re-doing this one won't be a huge deal, it wasn't too hard to Re &Re.
That's all for now, have a great weekend everyone!!
