Sent these off to TRF and was told it would take 8 weeks. I lucked out and got them done in 4! must be a record.

These are kinda tricked out- I had them send me the windows and then had them tinted locally, then sent back to TRF for assembly.

I also went with gray everflex to match the interior of the car. I think the black/gray will look nice. TRF did an amazing job on the refurb. Check 'em out:

Pictures of them on the car coming soon.

Nice work on those, especially the tinting. Let's see them on the car. I'll bet they'll look great.

With the Everflex they were about $750. Not cheap, but I can't imagine trying to sew these myself, even with a template. It's pretty intricate work.

They were in constant use on the car before I sent them in, but the driver's side was pretty bad; I was taping it up with vinyl tape every 3 months or so.

After getting these back, I realize that what I had before was not sewn to factory spec. I believe there were aftermarket side curtains sold at some point, right? Perhaps that's what they were.

They look great Gavin. I've got to send mine out to TRF one of these days.

Nice looking job Gavin! I want to thank jdubois for posting the TRF link. I've been sitting here in my shop looking at the side curtains and thinking that I better start on them soon. You and he have now given me the motivation I needed to get on them.

I wonder if they would do something custom? I've got a set of original sidescreens (thanks again Art). But, I've been thinking about making a set that will mount on to these during a sudden blast of weather. https://farm4.static.flickr.com/3065/3042802732_d673915d9d_o.jpg https://farm4.static.flickr.com/3293/3041956857_d96f366600_o.jpg I guess I would first have to get the orignals redone and then test fit a frame to the fiberglass sidescreens.

Apbos...We are interested in the "Half-Side curtains" that
are shown in your post. Do you have these? If so ...where
did you get them? How do they work? Will you be coming to the Woodland UBSCC British Car Show in May....could you bring
them if you are coming up there?
Thanks, Gil Ukiah, Ca

Yes I have a set. Don is correct, they are from Racetorations. I don't know yet if I will be up for the show as my wife will be having surgery soon and Statler & the B/E are not close to being ready. Tinman58 has seen them and thought he might fab a set for his car. If I do go I will bring them and the other items I have from Racetorations.
