Found instructions online - once the tension is released from the rear, you in crimp the rail to slide the top out, drill the rivets out of the roller to slide the bottom off then I just put the roller back up while I work on everything else.

Lol - that's funny - she's sitting under a coat of dirt - haven't started polishing yet - she was polished a few years back - here's the day we brought her home.

What are you using to drive the LEDs? Direct connection to 12V?

Your bath looks great! Looks like you did it without removing the shower, etc. What paint product did you use?

Thanks - and yes left it in place.. I removed as much of the caulking as I could- removed/cleaned the metal trim strips, caulked behind them, reinstalled - used Homax Tub and tile - http://www.homaxproducts.com/Tough-A...pray-On-Bisque

Followed instructions then sanded with 220 grit then re washed... Sprayed and left for 5 instead of 3- now to start installing fixtures... It's like night and day....

You can put RGB led lights in your airstream also and have a choice of color and brightness they come with a remote. You can get all matter of different colors by blending red green blue like soft yellow bright white oranges and my favorite purpleClick image for larger version
