Does anyone know someone who can make replacement Coleman canopy covers and will ship them? I need three, I can't find anyone local who will do them in canvas, and the vinyl they're using doesn't let light through.

I had the same dilemma and ended up buying direct from Coleman. Couldn't find anyone else. I got the yellow and the light shines through great.

I'm removing all canopies soon and just replacing them with light fixtures. They look dated to me, time to modernize.

That was my first thought, but this is a leased wash and the owner doesn't want any changes made, just upkeep. Also they may look dated, but the road isn't well lit and the bright glow from the lighted domes attracts attention.

Do you recall what they cost?

Right around 1k each. I had to buy four. The double vac islands were about 1k and $900 for the single vac island.

That's not too bad, about $100 each more than the locals have quoted.
