Interior walls


I am looking to replace the wall that is up against the refrigerator in the main cabin area. I want to use simulated stainless steel wall sheet stock. Does anybody know where I may find something like this. It can even be aluminum. I cannot use actual stainless as I will never be able to cut the wall profile that hit the outside shape of the Airstream. Please help. Attached is an image that shows the panel I want to replace.

Aluminum unless it is coated will give black stains to anyone who touches it. Make a template of the panel you want and a sheet metal shop should be able to make you a stainless steel panel to suit. then just contact cement it to the existing panel. You will only have to figure out how to deal with the edge at the hall.

When I recovered the kitchen backsplash in my '89 Excella I found a product on the Home Depot website. It's called Aspect Subway Matted Brushed Stainless. It is peel and stick in sheets that are about 12" X 4". The individual tiles making up each 1/3 sq. ft. piece are 2 1/2" X 1". It looks pretty nice where I used it and was easy to install. I cut it with a Fein vibrating tool with a metal-cutting blade. On some pieces I used a hacksaw even. I think it is aluminum even though the name is Stainless. It seems like the price was around $16 / sq. ft.

I found some laminate that looks very much like stainless steel. You want see it at HD or Lowes. Special order. I'm using it for my backsplash and for the counter top in the bathroom.
