General Discussion / Matching OEM marine vinyl
« on: March 25, 2014, 03:36:29 PM »
Hello to all,
     My brother has a 1999 FourWinns 24 Horizon and the rear sun pad is shot as well as the front bolsters.  I wanted to match it up the main Tan and off white colors the best I can for him.  I don't want it to look too funky. 

Any idea's on the best way to go about it would be...? 

  Thanks,
    Ed

Mike, I would say my wife could easily be talked into moving to Florida after the kids get out of highschool...lol

Daren, We have a Jotul wood burning stove and it's been the greatest money saver for this cold.  I would think I need 2 of them if I lived up that way...lol  -30 is crazy cold.

Thanks Mike,

     It went down to 4 DEGREES here last night, with high of 22 DEGREES this afternoon...  Yeah this is for my Scarab, and I would love to have it in Sarasota so I could take it out...lol  I have my full boat cover on it now, and another blue plastic tarp above that...  We got about 7 inches of snow Thursday night and it slides right off the blue tarp but not the sunbrella.

General Discussion / Foambacked Vinyl
« on: January 02, 2014, 02:27:02 PM »
I am leaning toward foambacked vinyl for my front cabin in my scarab.  So I have been looking around for some, and the prices seem high or higher than I thought. 

Does anyone have a good recomendation for a supplier of foambacked vinyl/white....?  And what is a reasonable price I should be expecting to pay.?

  Thanks, Ed

Fragged,
     No offense to the auto seat guys, but I would have to say this type of seat is up another level on the difficulty meter.  Really because of the arms, and getting them to lay in the 3 side corners and not upsetting the rest of the measurements.  I did a set of auto seats and I can say those stays and hog rings minus the arms, make it way less frustrating. 

 @Daren Henry After, my first seat last Friday I did have more than one drink...lol

Here's a before and after...I have a little more pulling to do on it, but it's way better than the 1st attempt.

Doyle,
   Check out Perfectfit.com...Look under "Navigator Marine Grade Vinyl 54"  They also have the Carbon Fiber vinyl that I am using for the stripes.  The Navigator does have a good robust feel to it, but it's still soft.

I am seeing the light...Finally getting it to lay nice.  The sectioning from the inside out is working great.  Went real slow and marked every joining piece big! then measuring and cutting to suit for the next section.  I am going to do the outside arms and back on Friday, I made notes and kept measurements for the second chair so hopefully it goes faster. 

Thanks for all the help and encouragement!  I will post a finished product soon.

You know what's kinda crazy too is, Proggression uses webbing and snaps to keep the skins on.  I told this customer I may not be able to use the snaps approach, he was ok with it.  I am not completely sure why snaps, I mean why not just take the seats out and store them inside for the winter.  I wouldn't want to take the skins on and off...

Daren H,
    I read what you wrote very carefully, and your idea should work and co-inside with the inside out technique others have mentioned.  I am going to start again on this tomorrow, just going to do the back and inside arms, then stop, I'll take some pictures.

The funny thing is, when I look at this job, it looks so straight forward, like it should be easy...lol 

I will hit it with the steam good  though before I try to put it on.

Here are some actual pictures of what I'm working on.  The top of the seat is slightly different from the ones online because they are an older design which I am doing more like the updated ones. 

A lot of good advice, I am going to work very carefully from the inside out.  I have some super sticky basting tape from sailrite that I may employ to keep things in place and get the best possible measurements.  I think your right about the stretch, but the measurements probably need to be more consistent and better overall
Thanks for the tips, I know this shouldn't be an issue for me at this point but these seats are tricky for me.  I will put some pics up when I get the inside section done.  And I am going to go very slow...

Ed

Here is a link to some Progression seats for sale.  If you scroll down, you can see these skins are not fitting real tight.  I am just wondering if I should go with the measurement as they are, and leave the 1/2 inch seam allowance alone?  Just thinking out loud, maybe taking the seam allowance in on the back panels and outer side panels screwed me up?    Maybe go get a roll of polyester and lay it on to smooth it out a bit  if need be...?  Also, They used a foam back vinyl on the original skins.
