My curtains from van x turned up today, hav'nt fitted them yet but after holding them up for a look in the van they seem to be bout 4 " shorter in height than the windows, I know that there supposed to stretch but it seems alot, has anyone got them and were yours like it?

Yeah, sound about right. You do have to stretch them quite a bit.

It also depends on where you put your tracks. I put mine in the window recess, some people put them above and below the window. I think it looks better inside the window myself.

Cheers

Inside windows every time fella. Yes they do need stretching but that is how the perfectly pleated look is created.
Worth it tho', keeps it all neat & tidy.

Thanks chaps did'nt want to put them in and over stretch them if they were to short, did you use the rivets that come with them or self tappers and is there anything I should look out for when fitting them? Cheers

I used the self tapping screws that came with the tracks.

does anyone know where i can source these poppers that will take a self tapping screw. I have looked in several shops and cant seem to find them. I am going to have a go and try and make some of my own.
thanks stu
