working with new tambour
I ordered tambour from Inland and couldn't figure out how to get it to slide in the guides. Andy sent me this message:
There is only one thickness.
What must be done, as per Airstream, is score the backside of the material where it rides in the channel, about 1/2 inch from the edge that will be in the track.
Remove the cloth material and the paper that sticks to it.
Then they will work just fine.
Also that is the way everyone must do it.
We do not use any tambour unless we purchase it from Airstream, therefore it's correct since they used that same material in production.
I also want to post a picture. see attachment.
