    Default hearse curtains

    I recently had curtains made for my hearse. The person that made them, is going to have do some alterations. She made the side curtains with no middle piece. The back window is three pieces with three curtain rods, but the side only have two rods. Are the side curtains one piece? The back are three separate pieces. My hearse is a 73 MM. I will post pictures when I get a chance. I hope this makes sense. Pictures word be very helpful.

    My side curtains are one piece, well it's 3 main pieces sewn together... the "valance" across the top is sewn to the sides. Actually the rear curtain is made the same way too. Of course our coaches are totally different but hopefully this helps.

    I knew the newer hearses or at least the S&S hearse curtains are one piece. I don't know much about other makes.

    I went out and looked and there is a third curtain rod. It's round and you won't see it, unless you are looking for it. Now I have to get her to make me the middle piece. I will post some pictures of the curtains as they are now. She made them for a lava lamp. A red and gold lava lamp and she is happy with it.

    Josh, look in My Sunday Drive pics which shows the name plate. My side and rear are 3 separate pieces. The side doors have the second rod which is located right under the rod for the side curtains. It has a little piece on each end that it attaches to. Blow it up big and You can see the second rod where it goes across. I think this is about as close as You will get, Our cars are almost identical, even Blue, lol. Let Me know if You need more info. Ray OOPS, didnt see You found Your 3rd rod.

    Thanks for the help. Hopefully I will have complete curtains soon. I have been wanting a set for as long as I have had my hearse.

    This is identical, http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb...379986912.html
    If it were closer I would have to get it.

    I made my own also, my car didn't have anything to go off of though, (there was no interior at all when I got it), so I just looked at some others on the internet and made some similar, lol. Mine are 3 pieces sewn all together also, just like everyone else was saying. Making all the mounts and rods was more work that the curtains themselves, lol.
