    Title says it all....
    I'm looking to make my own top, but I want a material that is as durable as the material they use, but they never mention what it's made out of! I'm sure they don't make it, Where do they get it? Anyone? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I want to say that it's made out of the same stuff that is used for boat tops. Sunbrella I think thats the name.

    I've been looking into sunbrella, but they make about 100 different materials! Anyone know which one it is, or how to specify the which one I want? Thanks for the reply! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I apreciate all this obvious info, but what I'm looking for is the name at which Sunbrella calls the fabric, so I can order it from them! I know it's a "Heavy Duty Canvas with PVC backing" That consists of like four different materials out there! Anyone know exactly which one they use, and if there is one better or not? Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
