PS. I've ordered the 36 X 48 piece for our AS. Any suggestions on how to cut this to size? I have a jigsaw and was thinking about measuring for this and using a very fine blade to cut the aluminum.
Well, to be honest, I have not cut or attached mine. I ordered the medium thickness sheet and it is a bit too thick to cut with tin snips. If you ordered the thinnest sheet I would expect that the snips would work perfectly. WIth planning, any cuts should occur under covers like the window frames and outlet covers.
As for attaching... I installed the tile-like sheets in the bathroom and found that it took very little to keep it in place. The curve of the metal keeps constant pressure so all one needs is a way to hold it at the top and the bottom. I actually intend to use rivets. I cannot imagine that glue would ever hold it to the vinyl. I had origianlly hoped that I could run a sheed from the counter backspash all of the way to the beams that run the length of the trailer. Unfortuantely, is is farther than 4'.
I promise to post pics when I finally get around to it...
