Where to get aluminum extrusions for walls

Hi as you can see from the picute I have no furniture from the entrace door all the way to the single bed on the left. I need to put up the walls and rebuild the surround for the fridge and I think what is another closet to the right of that. The fridge is a rm77. so it is tall,.. I know my way aournd a saw and can fabricate new walls but how to mount the walls to the shell is another matter. I have 1 auminum extrustion that was found in a closet. DO they still make these and if not how should I go about making new wall attached to the shell?

to sum up

are the aluminum guides that attach to the walls stillavailalbe,,,if not what can i use instead?

I have 2 rails seen in the picutre already...they look as though they will fit a 1/4 inch thick material. What type of material do you suggest?

Also, what type of hooks are used in the shower for the cutrtain I attached a pic of that as well.

If yu can't find the material through one of the RV Supply distributers, many in the Elkhart Ind area you may look to an architectural supply house that specializes in metal extrusions. Another area to check would be glass shops as metal edging is common there also.

Some of my wall mounts had clips in them too. They clipped to the edge of the wall material and then inserted into the channel.

Aluminum extrusions

I just finished gutting a '76 31' Sovereign. Some of my alum. extrusion pieces were bent in the process, but I did try to take care for most. I was just about to start the process of separating all of the aluminum from the plywood and plastic, so I do not know what I have. I know I have the piece you are looking for because I saved it to use as a template for the wall curvature. It is anodized in a light bronze color, but I suspect you could paint it. It may take me a few days to sort through everything I have that is re-useable.
