How did you get the elastic cord to hold together. Did you just tie up the ends?

I first made the channel for the cord by folding over the edge of the material and sewing. Then slipped the cord into the channel but cutting it about a 1" or 1-1/2" depending on how much stretch you want.

Sew in one side flush to the end of the cover by hand if possible. I'm not sure how to do it any other way and I can't seem to fit it under the sewing machine.

Once you lock in one side of the cord, you'll need to scrunch up the material in order to get the cord to match up on the other end and sew it into place.

I'd like to experiment with glue to see if it'll hold better (or easier) than trying to sew it.

Awesome. Would some sort of thick polyester or nylon thread do the trick? Can't seem to find the polyurethane thread you referred to. I've sourced all the other materials fairly easy.

I'm sure the nylon thread would work great. The polyurethane thread I used was from a local Walmart. Wasn't anything special, just off the shelf stuff.

I Just read your PM but I figured I'll answer it here

Cheers!

NO Promises but I might be able to make a couple sets again.

I'll need a lot of measurements and money to cover material costs at minimum.
I'll keep you posted, thanks for inquiring!!

To clean these I used very warm water, dish soap and a stiff bristle nylon brush. Came out great!

OP? Any rubbing on the fabric from the tires when the suspension compresses? That would be the only thing I could see being a real issue.

another +1 for buying them. i'd happily give you $50 (that's nearly a 100% markup without factoring in labour right?)

Very well done! I've though about something like this in the past but never got around to making it. I'll definitely have to get some from you when I get around to setting up the suspension.

Thanks for sharing it.

LOL well yes that would be best. I was imagining that under some compression situations (e.g Hard cornering) that the material would bunch up from being compressed with the shortening of the suspension, which would push out the material making it touch/rub on the wheel or tire...no worries no that big of a deal, if it did and it rubbed a whole? Make new one, right? of course.

Kick A$$!!! I am getting ready to order my coilovers and was about to not order them since winter is coming up here quick in NJ, and I would hate to have them rust out like they typically. Awesome follow up as well by showing how effective this was a year later even after going through many washes and cleaning.

I know I couldn't make them, but my girlfriend is good with the sewing machine I can bribe her with a nice dinner!

Thank you all for the interest as I do plan to be making these in full production before winter. I ended up taking the year to concentrate on building my company and is now in full swing.

Once the covers are ready to be sold they will be on our website. Feel free to head on over to check the status on their availability. Looking forward to doing business with you all.

Cheers!
