Canvas Tarp Suppliers

Postby Ned B » Fri Jun 09, 2017 8:10 am

I was thinking of a retro vibe with two tone matching my car and an off white, unless I can get the teal canvas and the glue doesn't discolor it.

If I'm going to paint it, I'll just get plain and put a similar color over it.

I havent tried it but I was wondering if you used a colored canvas and painted over it with untinted paint base. i know that untinted paint was used on one of Woodbutchers builds instead of I believe varnish or epoxy.

Might be good to test that , as the color might fade in the Sunlight… There are UV coatings you can use ...

Thought I would post this up.

My last purchase of a 12x9 canvas drop cloth at Harbor Freight did not have a seam through the middle. Not sure if it is a fluke of not, but if this is the new standard for HF canvas then it could be a good thing. Cost was the same and quality seemed the same.

FWIW, I bought two 12x9 canvas tarps from HF at separate times during the last 6 months. Neither had seams.

That is great! :thumbsup: That means now you should be able to do 11'x8' spans. :thinking:

I’m guessing they don’t like you to open them up to check for seams eh ? :oops:
