Do gray roll bar covers exist?

I’ve searched everywhere I can think of, but before I give up, thought I’d check the hive mind.

You got me curious so I checked mine. My main hoop cover is grey, but my windshield and family bar covers are black ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I just sewed up a set. It's just a long rectangle and a zipper.

I'm not currently capable of this, but I suppose I could outsource. What sort of fabric did you use?

Good advice Don.

I have seen some with velcro also. Not sure what brand. Velcro needs less talent to sew and get a good fit than a zipper. I am starting to think that you make tailored suits and stuff as a hobby Don. You got this stuff down.

If you don't have the resources to sew for yourself, look for a local seamstress shop. Some of them do work for very reasonable prices.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

I just went to Joann Fabrics and picked some appropriate vinyl and a long enough zipper.

When I got out of college (BSEE '70) and moved from home in Detroit to Poughkeepsie NY and IBM, my mother gave me her old sewing machine, for repairs and such. In maybe '75 I did actually make from scratch a pair of blue bell bottom corduroy disco pants for nights in NYC. I couldn't dance like Travolta, but I had the look!

They did.... until I painted mine with the Dupli-color black paint, lol. I used the stuff on a VW Rat Rod years ago, and it held strong, same with my Jeep bars, the straps from the soft top don't seem to rub it off.

Mine were discolored and funky looking anyhow.

But I did search for a short while to find what could match my top, which is black with small grey rain drip looking stripes. Think Easy German Rain camo, but black/grey.

Hmm fabric paint isn't a bad idea. Mine were gray, but they've been dirt-stained since before I got them. No amount of cleaning has ever gotten the dirt stains out.

Stuff really works well. The fabric soft doors i picked up on a killer deal were Sahara tan initially. They turned out real good with black fabric, vinyl and upholstery paint.

Yep, my grey ones never cleaned up, lol.

I've used it on all sorts of fabrics, vehicle, outdoor furniture cushions, even custom fake leather furniture, etc. Never had a customer call and complain it wore out. I used to be a "Prop Master" for HSN TV.

If you want, and not in a rush, go get a piece from a junkyard, spray it, and leave it out, drag it through the mud, whatever.

I did my VW bug seats and headliner with it, the seats never wore out for me. And the headliner came out awesome.
