Smile D90 Drop Curtains for sale

I am doing another run of curtains - the last one was two years ago - so if you want to get in on this order please email me as soon as possible as I'm placing the order on Wednesday. Please include the words "Drop curtain" in your subject line - amvigil(at)comcast(dot)net
The new price is $175 + shipping.

The material is the same as before however they no longer have snaps to attach to the roll bar - just the Velcro straps. I found that D90's are too inconsistent and there is no one-size-fits-all. Most people were unable to use more than two or three snaps and just used the straps anyway. This also means that there is no longer a ST or SW specific version; the new curtains will work on both.

For those not familiar with these, they are designed to fit between behind the front seats to effectively decrease the amount of space the heater needs to warm. It will allow you to drive your D90 without the heater on full blast. They also work well in the hot months with the A/C.

Below are links to several pages of threads discussing these curtains. If that is not enough information, feel free to email me.

Please note: These are NOT Badger curtains. Not even close. They are not intended to compete with, compare to or replace Badger curtains. They are sloppy fitting and not even slightly sexy, but they keep you warm (or cool), that's it and they work - very well. And they're cheap.

Regards,
Art Vigil

I'm still deciding if that'll be my Xmas present or not.... What are the benefits of a drop curtain beside warmer cab in the Winter? Any benefit in the summer (colder cab when the A/C works and is turned on)? Any benefit when no top is used (cut the wind?)?
Sorry if those are stupid questions, just trying to justify that expense to my boss!

Anyone have a good way of keeping the rear windows from fogging up with the drop curtain installed? Loving the big snow storm here and the warm cab, but not so much that I can't see out the back!

Art's curtains are great! Toasty cab in winter and less dust in warmer months. In the warm season you can use the drop curtain with your surrey top make a nice closed cab separate from the space in the tub.

Keeps my ass warm in the winter with the shitty Tdi heat output. I highly recommend these from Art.

Art,
Thanks for the curtain again. I installed snaps at the top and bottom to help lock it in. Works Great.
