So the obvious question: did those early RPO cars have canvas roofs over wood like early loco cabs?

Most* D&RGW passenger cars had turne metal roofs, not canvas... made up of about 22"x30" sheets, with seams crimped and soldered
*the only exceptions that come to mind are the early arch roofed RPO cars....

I like using Model Airplane "Silk Span" which in that hobby is used to cover wings and other airfoils. I have been usng it for years. I actually cut it up in the sizes i want, place it dry where I want it and then paint it with floquil grimy black. The paint becomes the adhesive. Any extra I have hanging off the sides I cut off with a fresh sharp razor blade. I guess I works fine as when I placed my 7 car train of Labelle cars with interiors and under workings it placed 1-2-3 and I was told to not block he category by bringing back the others for a while. hahhahaha

I have seen alot of folks use tissue paper and diluted white glue and then use a black / grey paint.
I am looking for suggestion to simulate the canvas roof on my LaBelle Passenger car fleet.
