:ILU: Well I have considered a bonnet bra but looking at threads, they do not seem much cop. I have a red caravelle and was considering getting the bonnet done with black and white cheque vinyl. It looks good but does anyone know of someone who could do one?????????????

I am in Essex/London border.
Suggestions appreciated

Yep did that one, bud just go to your local signmaker, make sure he uses a good quality vinyl, with a minimum of 3 year life, expect to pay about 80 fitted oh and 100mm squares look about right..........

They look pretty dapper. I notice it was a white van, so did you just add black squares? Mine is a red van so I need black and white?

Yep, just added black, but to colours will not be a problem, except cost you more, also a good reason for quality vinyl, you dont want the vinyl shrinking leaving a gap between squares, especially thats the area that will get the most sunlight............

Mines from CMC, its just the plain back although they do a black and white one as standard. despite some of the comments on here never had any problems with it. Left it on for about 2 years straight, removed it after hearing scare stories but no rusting, bubbling or anything. More than happy and a good fit too.

I know you mention vinyl, but I've had a bonnet bra on for 2 years now.
No problems. Take it off now and then (not often) and give the bonnet a good polish and put it back on.
Came from Mike at CMC aswell :ILU:

If you still want vinyl have a look at the new mini sites. plenty offer sheets of black and white check designed for the mini's roof. more than enough to do a few bonnets

have to say i have had 3 bras now,and all seem to tear or come unstitched,just think the wind on the bonnet seems to do it,not :* bras off,cuz i have bought another one,think they look sweet.....

Vinyl is a good option,although have just picked up my nice freshly painted matt black bonnet.:D

Its a hard question? Do you prefer a bra or natural with vinyl.
I could check out CMC Bra's because my wife will nag me and I just take it off.

If anyone sees a red caravelle with cheque bonnet bra, driven badly with a wierd guy seemingly daydreaming whilst doing 70, flash your lights and say hi.
