Had you thought about using nylon zips instead?

Buy them local if you can Jambo and check that they run smooth. They can be a right pain in the back side if they don't. My dad put new ones on the rear cover for his M.Y. last month but did it by hand with a sail needle. He ended up with thumbs that looked like a bell end at an STI clinic.

I found some on ebay from a haberdasher supplies near Aberystwyth. Cost me around 10 - 15 for 4 x zips to do the job.

My mam's handywork here:

This ebay seller has a good selection of long zips:
