Question Curtains for 67 Overlander

We just purchased a 67 overlander 3 days ago. You can imagine how excited we are. I sew so I am going to try and to the curtains. I need Help! It has nothing at all on any of the windows. We have tracks with plastic holders (Hope the Picture is attached here) (I'm new at this) The tracks are above the windows ant the bottom it looks like rod holder for a round rod. Can anyone tell me what type of curtains were in it and how they attached. Rods, Hooks etc. Glad to be part of the group. Ann

The bottom is not a rod, but a piece of elastic rope. There are eyelets for the rope to go through to keep the bottom of the curtans in place. I can post a photo tonight if need be. Hooks at the top.

The original elastic cord I believe had electrical 'eyelet' connectors on each end that hook to the wall fitting ( in Till's top picture).

Exclamation Plastic Snap/Clips

We found one of these plastic snaps/clips which fits into the upper plastic guides, any idea if they are original or were they replacements for the pins.
I can't belive what I thought was rod holders only uses elasatic cord/string.
Are you sure??
Did the original drapes have pinch pleats.
Fell so dum.

The original drapes are pinch pleated. I thought there were rod holders, too, so the elastic comes as a surprise to me. I've never seen your type clips before. How do they work exactly? Tedd thanks for the great photos!

Yes originals had pinch pleats. That clip is not familiar .I'll try to get a picture of what I have found in both my '67's for you. I''ve also found the elastic in both trailers one of which had all original upholstery with A/S tags.

Question Snap thingies

That little snap doodle looks just like what we used at Kmart to attach edges and dividers to shelves. Once it's snapped together, it's extemely difficult to remove. Are you sure the previous owners didn't adapt something that was available to hold up the curtains?

Gee... if that works.... I still have connections at Kmart.... hmmmmm

Anyone have a picture of the elastic cord and the end? Any idea of the diameter?
