Cushion clips for '64 overlander goucho???

The PO started taking the fabric off of the original goucho, with the 2 side wedge shaped arm rests. The problem is, she took the clips with her. I don't know what they looked like. There are 2 metal brackets on the walls that I assume were for the arm rests, and there are 2 clips on the wall to hold what I believe was the goucho back rest from flipping forward. Does anyone have a picture of what these looked like?

thanks!

I didn't have clips on the arm rests, just on the back cushion. I can't seem to find a picture of them now. The clips are just a simple "U" shaped piece that screws to the plywood backer in the cushion. I am missing one of them but the cushion stays in place pretty well anyway.
I tried to find the same type of clip but they are an odd thing. About the closest thing I've found is an elbow catch for cabinet doors. These can be modified to work with the cushions with a little thought.
The little armrests are fine without clips. They have always stayed in place, even going to Burningman and back over the worst parts of highway 80 didn't jar them loose.
Love those '64s

Good luck,
Rich the Viking

The brackets on the front lounge on my coach appear to have been modified. When I first purchased the coach, there was a length of elastic through each of the "u" shaped brackets with snaps on each end these snaps were attached to the wooden back of the cushion to keep it in place when underway. When I had Arlene and Henry Fowler (Fowler RV Interiors) refurbish the interior of my coach, they did not reuse the retainers, and I haven't had any particular problems since then. I suspect that the reason that I haven't had problems since refurbishing the interior is that the new cushions are substantially heavier due to much higher-density foam and a very dense upholstery fabric that it takes more to move the cushions.

The armrests in my coach are "tear-shaped", and bracket is essentially a "L" bracket that was carefully bent to make a "u" that just hooks over the "u" bracket that is attached at both ends to the front sidewalls of the coach.

I am afraid that I don't have photos of either of these two items. My schedule has been topsy-turvy, and I don't know just when I will be back to check on the Overlander.

Good luck with your investigation!

Kevin
