Window guides

Does anyone have a source for the felt material to refurbish these? Mine are in good shape other than the material is squashed down and worn out. Seems silly to buy new ones when a little bit of felt carpet could rejuvenate them. Don't really want to step over dollars to pick up dimes but this is one of those items it would seem could be restored for pennies if I could find the material.

Re: Window guides

Maybe try the soft side of velcro?

Re: Window guides

Tim, When I purchased my window fuzzy's kit (Repops) it included adhesive backed
felt for the guides. You can purchase it at any fabric store.

Re: Window guides

The material is reproduced. Seems awfully high at HBC...https://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/...uzzy-Material/ Maybe try ebay Ö?

I do like Daniel's idea though.

Re: Window guides

Check your local hardware store for the small sheets of felt material with adhesive on one side you can cut out to stick on the back of drawer and cabinet edges to cushion their closing against the surrounding woodwork, also used under things to protect flooring. The soft side of velcro might be a better idea and may be thinner.

Re: Window guides

Thanks guys. I figured the material had to be out there somewhere. I did find Camaro Central sells a little kit to recover those as well - about $14.

Re: Window guides

Cheaper to do the fabric or velcro. You might even be able to use strips that Lowe's, H. Depot sell for putting on the bottom of furniture legs. All cheaper than $ 14.
