I would HIGHLY encourage anyone wanting to redo a Marigold standard
'76-'78? to buy this stuff from Steve as frankly upholstery cloth is REAL
expensive.  I didn't fully realize this until I started looking for some gray
for my '95 EVC and noticed you can not buy ANYTHING for under $20/yd
and anything you want to buy is $30-$40/yd.  This stuff is NEW 54" wide
'76 manufacture VW cloth folks.  Considering idiots want $60 for a single
upper bunk cushion $12 a yard is a steal.  I honestly don't remember
what I paid back then for it I bought the two rolls from the Trim Shop for
something like $700 or so I recall and we split it up among 8-10 people
at the time at cost.  It seems to me it was about $12/yd or so, maybe a
bit more or a bit less I recall losing money on it by the time I paid for
boxes and all.  Somebody could dig through REAL old vanagon archives
if they really wanted to know what it cost.  It is mostly yellow and green
(1-1.5" stripes) with some orange and black (0.5" stripes.)  It wouldn't
be strictly correct in an orange or green westy but considering how tacky
this stuff is anyway (and I say that with love) if you recover the entire
bus it would go well enough.
