Wasn’t going to ask but this is the second picture from you I’ve seen petrol memorabilia in the background. Looks like a Fry Mae West in the background next to the Texaco sign. Are you into only the visible pump style or the mechanical computer style as well? I’ve done a fair share of restoration of all kinds of petrol memorabilia over the years, mostly pumps and oilers though. You restore that kind of stuff too or just a collector?

Are the snaps already in the aluminum? My seat cushions on my 1955 Vagabond has the same flap to snap the cushions in place.

The seat cushions look great, are the snaps hidden or just not installed yet?

Thanks Ray. I'm not quite that clever...the snaps are not installed yet.

Nice work. Looks great.

Thanks. Hey Scoot, Not unless your girl Janie is a NC mountain girl???
The material is Silvertex. It comes in a lot of colors and is a really cool product. This is the 3rd or 4th time I've used it. I wanted a simple pattern and Janie suggested the quilted look.

Not the dealer she uses but this is the material.
