    Would it be possible to attach Sunbrella material to a frame with large head rivets and VHB tape? I have a customer that was quoted $9,000 to cover an existing awning frame, I thought it would be $1,500-$2,000.

    would it be possible? yes. would it be recommended? no.

    do it for 1500. if it fails, tell them you'll do it again for another 1500. you can remake the sign 6 times before you match their previous quote!

    The material that is on there now was hooked on their with 3/16" pop rivets with 1/2" wide heads. Looks pretty strate forward. The length is 22" and 4' tall3' deep rounded over. the curved ends are glued around the end bumps so I thot VHB tape would work. I seriosly would like some real feedback please.

    Yeah, well noone is usually that orange dumb.

    Ok, Edna, you want someone to be serious, here it is... Why would you want to devalue the industry by coming in 20% cheaper than someone else. And prior to posting, why don't you open word, and typing in what you want to say, then spell check it. I know I can't spell, but damn, you are worse than I ever could be.

    I can rise my price point, I just need to no if this will be the correct method. What price point should I be at to please you people? Seams eveyone thing I am running on the low side. The nearest awning place to 60 mile from hear in St. Jo so I guess that the travel is going to be part of there price point.

    Why are you all so mean on hear? JUST ANSWER MY QUESTION ABOUT THIS AWNING FOR THE LOVE OF DOGS!

    Their, I spell checked this one, for Cat's sake.
