Re: 72 Jimmy looking for bikini top

I would try a boat shop that makes covers. I think they will be your best place to try.

Re: 72 Jimmy looking for bikini top

And last question for anyone who can help, how do I attach an image(s) in a post? I see where I can link out to a URL, but not how I can attach an image.

Hey. Your Welcome. I had him make one for my Brothers Blazer several years back. The upholstery Shop does good work.
