I agree that Sunbrella bags like you say, that's why I have switched to Top Notch which is the same price for me as Sunbrella anyway. The only problems with Top Notch are its limited color selection, and it needs to be cut with an Engle hot knife to stop the raw edges from fraying. Sunbrella has 100's of colors, patterns, and weaves. Sunbrella is solution dyed woven acrylic, and it's been around forever, so I'm sure there are pretenders out there that are lesser quality.

Top Gun is an inexpensive 100% polyester fabric, but it is not breathable. For things that are going to be enclosed for a length of time, especially things that may be wet when put away, this may create a problem, and that is why I suggested woven (breathable) fabrics like woven polyester and woven acrylic. Top Notch is woven polyester, which is the equivalent of woven acrylic but less expensive. The Odyssey Soft Touch was the perfect combination of breathable acrylic fabric and soft backing. I had never heard of the Odyssey before, so I learned something today also.

BTW, 57 fairlane, If you had a problem with Sunbrella, it was not true Sunbrella. Sunbrella is a woven acrylic, and does not lose it's color. I recently repaired a bimini top that was 10 years old. I ordered the original Sunbrella fabric and it matched the 10 year old fabric perfectly. The original top was perfect in every way except for mouse holes. I don't know of many fabrics of any kind that are in that good of shape after 10 years.

57Fairlane Yup, 100% it is, done front covers for vehicles being towed, etc. with it, its the best material thats soft back Ive seen.
Top gun is good, Polyester is the strongest, but outdated as its vat dyed which makes it to rigid and not the nicest to look at, handle,color can flake, etc. I mainly use Top Notch now, polyster as well but solution dyed, so it looks, feels, breaths like sunbrella, but isn't crap like sunbrella (fades, STRECHES, looses waterproofing after a few years, is weak, etc,etc, etc).

klock I think the soft touch is what i was looking for. Thanks K

DanTwoLakes Nope, it didn't catch it, so I'll go back and edit it out.
12-07-2007 01:19 PM
DanTwoLakes Come to think of it, I don't know if the software would have caught "********", so let's see.
12-07-2007 01:12 PM
klock Dan,
Your software didn't edit my post, I wrote it like that!
I have a small sense of decorum, twisted as it might be.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Kurt

DanTwoLakes I saw the post by pasadenahotrod and thought the same thing that klock did......that he hadn't read the original question and his input was neither of value or well thought out. I assumed he was going for humor that klock didn't see or appreciate, so I just left his post alone. Klock's response to him was a little extreme, but it was automatically edited by the board's software before anyone read it. Since then, pasadenahotrod edited his original post. I don't see a reason to ban anybody, and I think klock's apology is enough for me. In the future, let's not respond with expletives directed at other members to an unappreciated post, or post something that isn't the tiniest bit relevant to the thread.

And, on a lighter note, Odyssey Soft Touch is available here: http://www.sailrite.com/Odyssey-Soft-Touch-Grey for $18.50 a yard 60" wide.

poncho62 Interior forum, being Dan's domain makes it his call..........I didn't see the edited post by said "d***head"..............

Just glad I didn't respond with........"Bras, I like the lacy ones".............
12-06-2007 05:33 PM
klock Thanks to the guys who gave considerate, experienced, well-informed input. I apologise to Dan, who went completely out of his way to help me, for causing any unpleasentness in his dominion. If my reply to an imbecile, who has since edited his original post, was too harsh or troubling for some of you I apologise

All I was looking for was a trade name for a product. I'm not a hotrodder per-se, but if you need an answer you go to the experts.

The question was asked in good faith and a good faith answer was expected. I don't recall asking for an opinion on vehicle bra's, pro or con. I was just looking for a product.

If the mods feel it prudent to ban me, so be it, but, if it swims like a duck and quacks like a duck then it's probably a duck! (read: duck=said imbecile)
