Anyone with experience with replacement installation?
Did you select toggle cord or mini grip closure device to secure bottom of shade & why?
Did you remove the previous closure snap in the wall (how big is the hole)?
Any other comments? Thanks!
I had a 2005 International too, and the window shades in it were standard big box hardware shades. The wood rollers warp due to pressure on the hold down and the fabris has probably gotten sun faded.
You might want to consider the economy route... having shades cut to size at a hardware chain and installing them with the existing hardware. These can also be turned into custom shades by replacing the vinyl shades with a lightweight fabric backed with non-woven interfacing.
If the pricetag for the factory shades doesn't scare you off, any holes that dont mate up with the new shades can be filled with a pop rivet. The shades will need a hold down for towing.
