Just noticed there is snap buttons screwed on each window frames in the rear compartment of my 1970 classic combination. I suppose it was to attach the curtains but is there someone here who have their original curtains ... or a picture with that kind of snaps? Or maybe a kind of strap made of the same fabric? :confused:

the standard large snaps are what is used. they hold the edges to the curve

are they sewed on the curtain or it's a strap with a snap?

small hole in the curtain is cut with a punch and the female side is a two piece the button has a tang that is peaned inside the snap. pinching the the cloth between it. the anvil and post striker is usually included with the snaps.

if you can't find any I can send you a set. fairly common in a hardware store down here. I though I had some pictures of doing it but only this one here. I used the tool on this set. a little easier to pean it over with but now I owe my wife a new one. they just don't make tools like they use to.
