Ayresdream- you can make wood tracks for lexan, or formica doors, that are fit into (and glued to) the extruded aluminum frame of your overheads. It is roughly a 3/4" by 3/4" wood strip, with saw kerfs spaced a little bit apart for the lexan or formica to slide in. Make the kerfs in the top strip deeper than the bottom ones, and then you'll be able to lift the panels into place and have them captured top and bottom. It's easy with a small table saw, and some construction adhesive. With formica, you can choose from hundreds (thousands?) of colors, patterns, textures, etc. Have fun! -tim

We used wood strips as the sliders...they have the grooves for the panels cut into them. They work really well.
