The Business Of Upholstery / Re: Boats, marine upholstery

You can certainly take off and bring to shop, I do that. Just remember, when quoting, especially in salt water, bolts, screws corrode, allow extra time. I will quote upholstery, then tell client time and materials to remove and install, or you can remove and bring to me. If getting into boats is something you want to pursue, I suggest this forum to join on facebook. Marine Canvas & Upholstery Discussion Centre

Elaborate. Or, call. It can be moldy. No worse than a sofa that had seven cats pissing on it.

Yes, Rhino cad. Free for 3 months, then around $900 to purchase. There is other software also. You can buy a carlson, autometrix and other plotter cutter tables that will take the cad and cut material. That will set you back around $65,000

In Wisconsin, as long as I tell them upfront, I can charge the fee. No go if I tell them $100 for job, then add the 3% Many of these clients use cards for points, mileage, etc. that is being feed by the 3% processing fee. I take credit cards because many say, lets go ahead, do you take credit, I didn't bring a check.

I use square, but the customer is told upfront, that the job will cost a additional 3% to cover fee. They all agree to it.

Chris, I have never had a problem with sunbrella (so Far), but I have with recacril. I will say, I have recently been hearing of sunbrella issues, mainly fading, changing color.

The cheaper clears will fail in 5 years, wrong chemicals on all, will assist in early failure on the best. By an airport, jet fuel, coal fired power plant, and lack of care.

General Discussion / Re: Had it with Strataglass

Regal, I have the same problem, as stated in JoJos  thread. Just went thru irritating warranty claim from them. I will stick with o'sea, a better product as far as I'm concerned. Stay away from strataglass and there bad customer service and quality control.

« on: August 06, 2014, 08:55:36 AM »

If its cloudy it is probably not makrolon. You can cut out and sew in new makrolon. If it is ridgid, and not vinyl that has lost its plasticizers, then it may be lexan, which will yellow. It could be old beat up acrylic, in which case you can buff it out. Lastly I recommend o'sea for scratch resistant glass over strataglass. 1- o'sea can handle suntan lotion, 2- strataglass has crap customer service when it comes to warranty on its product, and its quality control seems to have dropped.

You could slit the listing in 2 spots at the hole. Pull that piece into the hole and staple to the hole or pull through and staple to bottom of board. Especially if stapling a piece of material to bottom of board.
