Anyone using these kind of curtains?

Do they Velcro to your existing frames?

i have them.

yes, you strip the old material, and they velcoro on

they do the job, but are nothing like original. they dont fit as well, they do look ok, but originals look 100 times better in my opinion, i would have bought the thing shop ones, but didnt want to spend the extra dough. wish i would have.

im not saying it is a bad product at all, but if you have the cash, just buy thing shop

As Joosty Chin said, they do the job.
I offered to leave my frames with them and have them sewn on, but she declined.

Their tops are top quality thou. I have the StaFast cloth and they are as good as or better than my Jeep had.

They are a mother and daughter shop, the husband passed away. He made some top of the line wood bows for bugs. They are just running on their old patterns, I am unsure if they do tops for new model lines.

As you can see, the velcro does not allow the plastic to stretch to lay flat.
We are going to buy the Thing Shop sliding windows.
