I want to make shades to cover 40 guage Stataglass on the full cockpit enclosure I just completed. (Thanks to my great LSZ-1!!) I am interested in maximum daytime privacy but still want to retain decent daytime outward visability.  I will be using "white" unless Phifertex makes an exact match to the "turquise" Sunbrella I used for the enclosure..   What will best meet my needs??  Standard Phifertex or Phifertex Plus???  Does Phifertex have an exact match for turquise Sunbrella?????

Thanks,    Hugh

Hi Hugh, Unfortunately there is no color of Phifertex that matches Turquoise Sunbrella well. I would recommend that you use the standard Phifertex. Just realize that at night with light on inside the enclosure people will be able to see in. In the daytime, privacy inside will be very good.
Thanks, Matt with Sailrite

Thanks Matt,

I'll order the standard "white".
Also thanks for the phone advice last week.  Found the burr, made it smooth, and all is well!!!!

We have a 1980 Marine Trader which I've made a enclosed cover on the bridge with Phifertex. I originally started with white but found that it was too bright. I completed the project with royal blue but it's a bit dark. Any suggestions on a neutral color.

Hi, Yes - try the grey sand #416. I find it to be a great compromise. Thanks, Matt
