Aluminum sheet as "wallpaper"

I just bought a roll of thin aluminum sheeting at Home Depot to cover the small "wall" area between the sink countertop and the medicine cabinet in the bedroom area of our Safari SS. For whatever reason, Airstream put two different types of wallpaper in this small space and I think the aluminum will be an improvement. Anyone done this? There is some electrical switch gear there, so any hints are much appreciated. If anyone is interested, I'll take some pics and post them.

Mike

Nibbler for cutting holes. You can get a hand operated one but it will wear you out. These do create the least amount of distortion when your cutting. Most are Air powered. You can get them for about $40 at Harbor Freight and sometimes Northern Tools.

I plan on using sheet in the bath/shower. I think it will look good.

I seem to recal Peter used some on his Reefer door and posted a picture. Looked sharp.

Thanks, Toaster, for the heads-up on the nibbler.

I don't know what that is, but Harbor Freight has one. I'll check it out. I also want to do the wall behind the commode. I'll have to learn how to do the rivet thing to make it look right. I think there is some info on that in the archive. Will check it out when the time comes.

They have a Air one for cheap if you have a compressor. If not they have an electric.
Well I was trying to give a direct link but didn't work. www.harborfreight.com
Put "nibbler" in the search box and it will pull them up.
