Canvas Guard

We didn't have a front window guard for the '70, so i had a go at making one from canvas. I traced a pattern from the windows, allowed a bit for shrinkage, replaced a dozen rivets with press studs / olympics and it does the job!
It's 12oz Canvas with some 1/4" EPE foam and a thin lining.
