    i have a customer who wants to

    letter 2 existing older awnings (material looks very similar to scrim banner material)

    replace material on 1 (big tear at the top)

    replace or repair 1 that is bent ("kissed" by a tractor trailer, turning a corner)

    2 questions:

    is there a better source for material than sailrite?

    can i do this myself? (if appears simple enough, measure, cut, hem with the juki, install)

    am i over simplifying a complex task?

    customer is considering simply eliminating the severely damaged one?

    is there a good wholesale to the trade company?

    Illuminated Image is a good wholesale source for awnings. For a one off project, I don't think it's worth the effort to learn to do it yourself. Guess it depends how ambitious you are
