How to refurbish an old canvass tent..???

Recommended Posts

I have an old - 1960's canvas tent... two man. Belonged to my late father who camped in in during the 60's and 70's. I used it as a scout in the 80's. So its been discovered... needs a little rehab.


(1) Needs some new zippers, and


(2) Some cleaning...


How ??? tailor for zippers, ?

I just used a product called Canvak to seal a canvas tent. Good stuff so far.


A place that does boat covers, could redo your sewing cheaper than most.


Mild cleaners can be used before re waterproofing. Nothing too hash that can damage cotton/canvas.
