Our New Gaucho

We finally finished re-upholstering our Goucho in the front of our 72! Took me a while because I have to work on mine between customers. Here it is!!

Looks great! Good work. Wasn't that hinge between the back and bottom a trip to do? Took me a little bit to figure it out, but I finally got it!!!

challenge met

Yup!! Really quite a good challenge, especially if it is pieces! Glad you got one to study. Luckily, I had two. Took apart the first one and did it, then took apart the second. I did the new foam cutting and fitting too, plus new boards in the banana shaped cushion in the front gaucho and the board in the smaller filler cushion on the streetside gaucho. Larry cut the boards to fit better. And since I noted that the boards had rubbed holes in the fabric of the old cushions....28 yrs. of camping!....we decided to take a heavy blanket and make a "pillowslip-like" cover for the boards. A little more padding so that they are not constantly rubbing the good upholstery material at the corners. We'll see how that wears in a few years! LOL
Congratulations on your great job, and your addition to your sewing lines. I am sure you will be busy with all of those projects for others.
Lou

New pics of the outside

We have stripped the clearcoat, replaced the tires, and service the brakes. Now we just have to finish up painting the blue stripes.
