    At 8 oz per yard it should hold up a small car look for fabrics in the 1.9-2.5 oz per yard if you are concerned about the weight at all, otherwise no reason it would not work.

    ok update, after speaking to someone at rocky woods, the way they list their fabric weights is not per square yard it is nominal weight for shipping purposes, for example the supplex i am looking at is listed at 8oz/yard...sounds like alot right? but if it is 60" wide and 1 yard (36") long, then 1 yard does weigh 8oz, but 1 SQUARE yard would probably be about 4.something oz/SQUARE yard...i think i will be going with this fabric choice...
