Nice job! The screen for my canvas top is on the top, behind a zipper. I leave it unzipped all the time. I think your location in the rear is much better...

Thanks guys, I didn't have a Pattern to Copy, i just used the Pics from the Owners manual and i think It's Pretty Close, and not an exact Copy.

I have More labor Hours than Product Cost, but After the first one is made things do get easier.

Based on that I'm not sure How much I would Pay for one?

They were $150.00 two years ago when Simplicity quit selling them according to Jacks, but a half dozen other websites say they are still available for $156. That was for the cover. The door canvas $80.00 and still available.

2123049SM cart cover $156.00

2123051sm door cover $79.95

Very nice work there...dOd

That will be better than the original I think.

I wish I had a sewing machine to play with, I need to make a grass hopper for my old sweeper while the old one is still in tact enough for a pattern sm00

I covered my rear door with the pet proof screen wire that i bought from menards, I plan to cover the rest of the cart once the old is no longer usable, the advantage of this screen is that you can see how full it is easily. I sewed it with 8# spyder wire fishing line and if you know of this stuff you know how tough it is.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
