How many curtain tabs?

My airsteam did not come with any curtains. My wife and I are going to make new ones but I don't know how may tabs to buy. Any one willing to count? this would be all new curtains for a 75 overlander. I realize it will vary depending on how many pleats we put in and all but a rough idea would be great so I can over order and have them on hand while making the new curtains.

thanks

Ball park, you will need 100 each of the "T" and "G" drape tabs.

I made a set of living room drapes. The two front wraparound panels used 60 g-glides each. That is 30 top and 30 on the bottom. One between each pleat, and pleats at 2" on center.

My side windows used t-glides at the top and g's at the bottom. Not sure of the count there but your side window configuration is probably different than mine.

You can check my blog for what will probably be too much information on making drapes from scratch.

To the left of this message, in the upper corner, click on my name blickcd. That will take you to my profile. Click on the tab for blog entries. The drapery project was an 8 part epic. Possibly some other interesting stuff on there as well.

Do any of you happen to have an idea of where I can purchase those curtain rails that the little tabs run on? I am working on window treatments for a '67 Globetrotter with no existing window treatment hardware at all. Thanks!
