Let there be curtains!

What a difference a few curtains make! I bought this curtain set already in 2015, from an Ebay seller (Volksrent24) who (at the time) seemed to have specialized in sewing these sets on demand.  They cover all 8 windows of a late bay bus and were offered in green, yellow and orange. I bought the green set for Taiga Lily.

It took me another year to get around ordering the REIMO curtain rail installation kit (product number: 56251). For each window in the back, two holders for the wire at the top and two curtain holders left and right of the window have to be fixed with screws to the side walls. The curtain for all three windows in the front cabin comes in one piece with a rubber band sewed in at the top and is then attached to the wall via 6 push buttons (which were also part of the REIMO set).

The curtain holders look a bit like cheap plastic on their own, but do their job very well. The wrapped up curtains are quickly folded behind them and stay in place. Also, I am very happy with the color, works better with the sage green of the car and the green plaid of the bench cushions then I had expected.

I really like the quality of the Westfalia material. Very expensive for a whole set now. The eBay sites I have visited sell each window curtain individually usually. Not as a complete set. When you add them all up it’s a bit like…..Phew! Yours look fantastic. Nicely done.

Thank you! The set was also not cheap. About 200 Euro if I remember correctly. But they turned out to be of nice quality, and it saved me a lot of time compared to sewing them myself.
