Protecting the Local Ales

Mr Mick Arnold approached us with this challenging vehicle cover job due to the expertise of the specialised canvas department. Mick’s problem was fairly common – needing to keep his cargo dry whilst in transit. However the vehicle and the load were something a little more special! The truck is a huge, impressive 1956 Chevrolet Stepside Pickup, which was requiring a full vehicle cover. This had been imported in March this year from an owner in Colorado, USA. The aim…
