Looks absolutely de-vine Naomi!!
One other thing you coulda done is to use the old foam as patterns, cut them out an mailed them to the foam shop. Just woulda saved a l'il work!!!!

Whats 'happenin' in May, LOL!!!

We had the "Foam Shop" in Coquitlam do our new cushions when we re-did our Boler and made a dinette in the front. We also got them covered and they did a greta job.

They also made us a mattress for when we made a permanent bed in the back..

Super service and we won't hesitate to go there again if we decide to get a topper of some kind for our new Escape..

Looks like you will have some work to do--but you are smart to take pictures. We didn't until the end and it would have been nice to see all the work we put into ours...


Enjoy.....

We thought about sending them patterns but the only cushions our trailer came with were the couch cushions so we thought we'd just cut those while we were cutting the dinette cushions anyway. I wish we could have had them cut them all, that wasn't as easy or neat as I had hoped. Ah well they're all done now.

And yes, we're booked for the Fort Langley meet!!!!! can't wait!!

This may be too late for you, but might help someone in the future.

Getting some more work done, started the cushions, painted the cupboard doors and stove top, now working on painting the interior fiberglass...

She's going to be cheery

Thanks Roy, We used these but a few of the measurements were a bit off for our dinette so we modified our foam when we got it.

Naomi - I took a look at your album of restoration photos. We are currently working on a 74 trillium - about to start cushions next month... you boler is looking good!

can you tell me what wood you used for the cupboard doors? I have to re-do all of ours the original were all warped and swollen. We picked up some nice polished chrome latches at Restoration Hardware on Granville St and chrome hinges form Home Despot.

I'll check with my husband to be sure, but I think it is birch plywood, we just sanded the edges a bit and painted, they look pretty good, huge improvement from our old ones. Our Boler didn't even have some of the cupboard doors, really where do these things go??

One note/question on making new cushions: I'm not a professional, but I believe that typically the cushion covers are made to the proper size and "stuffed" slightly with the foam pieces. That is, the foam pieces are slightly oversized so that the covers will be nice and tight.

So I'm thinking that if one is tracing old foam pieces, they're good to go; but if using the cushion covers for patterns, you'd want to add a bit of size to the foam

Do I have this correct?

Barry, those nice chrome pieces???
Keep'em WELL waxed n polished and keep the trailer warm n dry over our monsoon season or you're apt to open your trailer in the spring to find some funky looking chrome pieces...
Those nice shiny pieces you bought weren't meant to be used as you are gunna use them AND chrome(ing) these days isn't 'all that'!!
