What about 3m VHB tape. I bought some but have not used it yet. Search Google for it and watch some of the videos. If it does what it claims it can do then I am going to use it a lot on my trailer.

It will take a gentle curve such as your wall in one plane very nicely. There are several styles that have no raised ribs that would curve more tightly.

I didn't show my refrigerator front, but just about everyone who tours the trailer comments on it.

I put Mine up In 2 pieces as that is what I had. I riveted along the seam mimicking the belt line on some trailers. Picture has a lot of flash glare but You can see most of the rivets. The lapped seam is upside down that just was the way it worked out with some damage to one of the pieces I needed to hide.

I missed that part. Oops. Good thing you didn't take my advice and start riveting for all you were worth, it could have been--messy...

Fridge face

Here is a shot of my refrigerator face with the plastic replica stamped aluminum. The sheets are affixed with double-sided tape and black plastic screen spline is tucked in around the periphery to adjust for the lack of thickness compared to the Dometic panels.

Got the backsplash done yesterday. Decided to use 3M super 77 as a contact cement after removing the lower portion of the cabinet.

Worked out fine.

Very nice. A bit of polishing and you could use it as a mirror! Albeit a bit inconvenient...

It's clear coated exterior skin material, so....no polishing.

Very petty.

I am looking at updating my kitchen area too. Thes look very pretty, and they look easy to clean. are they difficult to install? Thank you for any information on them. I think someone said Home Depot?

I used them as a splash for the wall above the sink at the end of my galley counter and to cover damage on the microwave cabinet. Apply them with double-sided tape. I also used the sheets as the insert on my new refrigerator.

HD stocks a limited number of patterns and colors, but you can order a wide variety from the brochures they have at the display.

Easy to install with double-sided tape that is sold with them. They cut easily with scissors to fit around objects.

See the post above. They are installed with double-sided tape and black screen door spline is tucked in around the edges under the plastic of the door. They have weathered several thousand miles and 109 temperatures down to near freezing without shifting or coming loose.
