1964 curtain sliders

Where can I get the correct small plastic curtain sliders used for single top rail curtains in 1964 Safari? I need 114 of them. They arenít the G or T shaped tabs.

Are these the right ones listed by vintage trailer supply:

Small Curtain Sliders (Pkg of 50) Product Code: VTS-475
http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/Small_Curtain_Sliders_p/vts-475.htm

Any other known sources?

Thanks

They look exactly like the ones in our '64 GlobeTrotter...but I didn't order them from VTS, we found ours on ebay 6 years ago when we needed them.

you can get them here Sewing Notions, Flagcloth, Upholstery Supplies, Drapery Grommets, Sunbrella. They get a little cheaper the more you buy. 22 cents each over 100.

Cool curtain slides

Think these slides would work as shower curtain slides in a 63 Overlander? Fishboy

The sliders you show look different than the ones I got from VTS for my '61 Safari.
A photo of your top rail would help. I even sent a photo of my rail to VTS to make sure I ordered the right ones for me.

Thanks for the help all. Tammy to the rescue...again.

When I get it all apart, does the track itself require lubrication and if so with what? WD-40, white lithium grease, wax, soap...or does the plastic slide simply slide on a clean dry track?

The old slides are hard and don't slide easily... may be dirty track etc
