General Discussion / Rhino Enclosure
November 15, 2013, 03:26:32 pm
Happy Friday; to everyone, Its me again Pat from Muskoka, I have another interesting project, customer would like to enclose the cap to his Yamaha Rhino 4by4 2007, I have some idea about how to go about it. However I thought best to ask the other professionals, would you send me advice and maybe links. I believe its a lot like a boat top, which are not my expertise, so have a great weekend and thanks for help. PAT
Hi Everyone, its been awhile, have been busy with work, work, work, and buying a new home. I have another off the wall question. So I have been upholstering couches to look slip covered, I really need a guide, a video, some more knowledge on how it is done. Apparently the ones I have done look wonderful, however I feel I do not know how to finish skirts properly, any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thankz PAT

This is interesting, and could be a lucrative business for someone. Have hard plastic seat, attach foam to it and cover in white vinyl. lol  Has anyone ever done one, any thoughts. they price at 172.00 what a joke.

Just remembered the boat seats that are in shop in corner. They are from a speed boat, totally contoured to rounded out seat and back, the vinyl has been glued to foam. The question is how do you get the vinyl off the foam without ruining it. Thankz PAT

General Discussion / Cutting upholstery weight Linen
November 19, 2012, 04:05:38 am
Hi: Its been a long time since I've needed this kind of help. I have 30 yards of expensive linen to put on a large sectional, Have taken a t-square, chalk, made a straight line, cut it with sharp sizzors,  ended up with a uneven line. I have heard you use masking tape. Does anyone have any other tips for this dilemma. I really do not want to spend all the time masking out all the pieces that go into this very large sectional.  Thanks to all PAT
