Cool. Good luck. For what it is worth, I did not buy mine from an upholstery supply house. Mine came from a company that supplies material to the sign industry.

That is what a lot of these campaign signs are made out of from what I have heard.

You can use whatever you want to use, but I thought people asked questions here to find out what professionals use, not what amateurs use.

No, PVC foamboard is not what campaign signs are made from. PVC foamoard is solid, not corrugated. Yes, sign shops carry PVC foamboard which has been posted here dozens of times. What I'm saying is that you won't find it at Home Depot. You find it at upholstery supply shops, sheet plastic suppliers, and sign shops.

I don't understand the attitude Dan. I said nothing about the PVC being corrugated. I said nothing about it coming from home Depot and I said nothing that contradicted you. We are talking about the same solid PVC material. If you feel you must insult those of us who are not professionals like you then have at it.......

I wasn't trying to give you attitude , John. I know you said nothing about all of that. The only thing I was pointing out is the political signs are usually done with the corrugated sign board because it's a lot cheaper. The rest of my post was for the other posters, and the answer to your question at the end ("is there anything else you would want it to be") was my attempt at humor.



Let's start over. Your answer was good, I just wanted to point out that the signs used for political campaigns are usually corrugated and are very flimsy. I didn't want anybody confusing the two products. The answer about using whatever you want was directed at NorthstarT concerning his reply to me about using Velcro from a fabric shop , not at you.

I was not criticizing anybody, or trying to insult anybody, just trying to keep the thread on point and avoid some confusion.

Balony. you were acting like a typical "professional". aka one who knows all, sees all, hears all, and everyone who works on their own car is a total idiot because they have the audacity to do it themselves.
I truly enjoy working on my own cars, and have found ways that have worked well for me over the years. if those ways don't meet your standards [shrug] oh well.

None of what was discussed about what to use for a package shelf had anything to do with Velcro in window channels, you just used that as a reason to try to take a shot at me. I said that it was fine with me if you want to use whatever you want to for whatever, but you have decided you don't need to learn anything new that will save you time, money, and aggravation. I do this stuff every day for people who pay me for my expertise. If you don't like my advice, don't take it. I am trying to help people here, by sharing 40 years of experience. Why are you here, other than to cause trouble?

Look back at the earlier posts in this thread, Mr professional man. my first post was to share what I've successfully used for 20 years. if you don't approve of what I use, then don't use it. in fact, I later said that I liked the looks of the product that you use, had never used it before, but that I may use that on a future project. but I noticed you neglected to quote that portion of my post, preferring to point out my (attempt at humorous) jab at you.
I could actually care less if you prefer to delude yourself into thinking your here "to help people here, by sharing 40 years of experience." , but what does irritate me is when you trash other posters, including myself, with insults of what idiots we are because we don't do things the way you do.
If you truly want to help people, conceder sharing what you're methods are, but without the insults of how other people do things. some of us "amateurs" actually have some pretty good ideas once in a wile.

Russ out.

Consider sharing what my methods are? Boy you are totally wrong and know nothing about me. Check this out,my friend : Archive of Interior Tutorials Every one of these tutorials are my methods, which I have freely shared on this site since April of 2006. Not to mention the dozens of other shorter tutorials I have posted, and the hundreds of smaller questions I have answered. BTW, I NEVER call people names. You can look at every one of my posts and will never find one instance of name calling by me.

I realize that I have never posted anything other than insults to the people who come here looking for answers to their upholstery questions, but I have decided to post a few pictures of making a package shelf with waterproof panel board.



This one is covered with vinyl. The reason I used panel board instead of PVC foamboard is because this one needed to curve up in the back, and it was simpler to just bend the panel board than to heat the PVC to make the curve. I bent the boad into shape before gluing the vinyl on. You can see that I notched the vinyl before gluing it to the backside of the panel board to make it easier to glue the vinyl to the back of the package shelf. Then I glued the vinyl to the back of the panel board and sewed a stitch line about 3/8" from the edge to hold the vinyl down and give it a finished look. You could also sew binding on to the outside edge to finish it off. This one goes in a '48 Chevy coupe I am working on now.

You're welcome, Brian. I'm sorry I called you stupid so many times when you were doing your convertible top.
