I think we are gonna do kind of a butterscotch "leather" on the chairs. A dark green outdoor fabric with a cool texture on the sofa and a lighter textury greyish green on the dinette. Click image for larger version

ID:	256770 haven't decided what to do on the shower door yet. I have seen a nifty looking accordion shower door but it seems to only come in bone and white with plastic surround...

Shower is almost finished. Just have to sort the door and caulk it. First time working with aluminum, it isn't perfect but better than the peeling wallpaper!Click image for larger version

Good job, Aluminum panels are not very forgiving aren't they ? Nice light, mind sharing where you got it?

First slider done. Hardest part was getting it apart and getting all the rotten glued in fuzzy channel out. Took about an hour and a half. Couldn't have done it without the great instructions found on the forums. The top channel was rotten and broken so I had to leave it out. The window seems to seal fine without it. Just slides a little wonky but I can live with that...

I got the curb Side finished. Is there an easier trick to getting the fixed window loose? Some @$$#oŁ€ used silicone on the top halves of all of them. The last one I did tonight in the bedroom I really boogered up the frame trying to get it out... And don't break the screws... Is there a prize for who breaks the most? Hour and 29 minutes... Show Off!!!!!

I used a small crowbar (the "L" side ) and wood pieces to pad the alu. Just rock them back and forth. If you break screws and manage to drill them out (what a mess huh, to drill a steel screw thread out of alu), you can use 5/32 1/4" rivets. They will not mess with the window function.

Dangit! I ran out of fuzzy. Only the two windows over the sofa left to do. Also noticed a puddle underneath today. I was scared to check what it was though... I may take the creeper down tomorrow and slither underneath and try and find out.
