    Little Red got some new curtains today. I like sewing in my holidays - back to work Monday.

    Love them. Red and white just works with most patterns. The wires are good for the top and for getting the look when they are stowed, especially on the little splitty windows, but we have found for the bigger bay bus windows using wire in the bottom works better loose on the outside to hold the curtain against the bottom of the window/frame rather than sewn in. Easier to stow as it doesn't bunch as much. Even if you make the slot huge you still end up with issues with a big lump of fabric, and getting them open to abuse the possums ransacking your fridge and food containers in the middle of the night is entertaining.

    Got another week and a bit off starting Thursday. Not sure if I will have much to show for it though.

    Yes I agree it works for these little squares but not on the bay - we leave the bottom free in the bays and use a magnet to hold it in place.

    You have done well picking fabric,bringing the outside colour inside works well.Complements the bus or the curtains:)

    Little Red is now on Historic rego - Shannons dropped her excess from $350 to $300 and my monthly premium went down by about $20

    For the difference in price, I LOVE my silly little plates. Especially with four Historic regos, the savings are HUGE :D

    I put my KOM81Y plates on my Touareg.

    ;);) Well Rob, you should not have parked your kombi on the street the other night and had someone steal your plates!!! Oh no!! Now you will have to get some new plates!! ;);)

    There are also D plates - which is when you car is even only slightly modified from original - they are a bit more normal looking - but still ugly. Dplates.jpg

    Agree, they are very small - but they have a matching price tag - $46 per year including greenslip is awesome!

    In sunny Victoria the classic plates are normal large size with numbers and H. ie 97125-H. There was some discussion about being able to keep original plates but nothing eventuated so far. Pre historic plates on Schmett had original numbers but with green colour and a Slim Line on the front. Fitted just right on the bumper.
