Post Drop Curtain order

Drop Curtain

I've had a few requests so I thought I'd see if there are more people interested.
Need at least 10 orders before I'll do another run, otherwise I'll try again later in the year when the weather starts to get colder.
The price is still $170 (including shipping), but because of past experiences I will no longer accept personal checks. Payment must be either a USPS money order or certified bank draft and must be received before I have the curtain made.
Please email me directly as soon as possible if you want one, and include the words "drop curtain" in the subject line so it doesn't get deleted.
Click here for more info

Thanks,
Art Vigil

It depends on how long it takes to get 10 orders together. Actually making the curtains takes about a week. In the past, I've usually had the curtains before I've had the payment. This time 'round I'm not purchasing the material until I have payment for all the orders.

I think thats a good choice for you Art. This is the 3rd(?) year you have done this and enough people have bought some that can speak up on their quality and effectiveness if need be, including myself.

I imagine this would work well to keep it cool in the cabin in the heat, also. Hmm, I might be interested...let me know when crunch time is and I'll see if I have the disposible cash at the time.

I bought a used curtain this past year from another D-90'er. It works great! In Phoenix, we have blazing heat and the A/C could never keep up cooling down the entire cabin of my softtop. By reducing the cabin size by about 60% with Art's curtain, I ride around in total comfort not to mention that the ride is also much quieter because I don't hear the rear side windows flapping anymore. Thanks Art for this great product.

You mean it actually reduces noise, too? This sounds better than sliced bread. I think I better get in on this order unless I want to wait a year....

*UPDATE* 16 Aug'04

I still need a few more orders to make a run. If you're interested, now's the time to speak up.
Feel free to email me with questions. I'll also consider trades.

Regards,

I noticed it being a bit quieter as well. The curtain is made of a layered tough felt type material on the one side so it does act as a bit of a baffle and the window part is tough plastic. I do notice a reduction of the noticable noise I pick up from the rear windows.

Thanks Steve - I'm interested to find out if it will fit a 110.
If after you look at the 90 wagon you're still unsure, I will have some time tomorrow evening when we can meet up somewhere to test-fit the curtain on your vehicle.
Plus I'd love to see that 110 up close

Art,
I am in for a drop curtain, Let me know how to pay. Have concluded that If needed, I can modify it to my 110.
Tried to send you private message, but no success.
Let me know if possible and payment process.
Thanks,
COSteve

am I too late?

Art,
If it's not too late to get on your list... I'm in. It sounds like a good price for something so useful. I think back to a trip to Jackson, Wyo. a couple january's ago (is anyplace on earth as f-ing cold?), I would have paid a pretty penny for a good drop curtain on that trip!

I can't help but think that your drop curtain might help stem the flood of dust that blows through my soft top from rear to front on those long dirt roads. I could do away with that fancy piece of duct tape that seals the top of my tailgate.

I'll drop you an e-mail and watch this thread hopefully.

thanks,
Rod

Damn. Wish this thread had poped up a couple of weeks ago before I ordered a drop curtain from Badger.
