Tommy Bahama Fridge Upgrade...sort of ....

Did this today. Took about a week for the laminate to come in, and about half an hour to do the upgrade. Ordered the Nevamar Machiatto sheet, used a straight edge and sharp utility knife (careful and repetitive cuts) and then slid back in front of the plastic stainless. The removal of door handles and plastic was the only thing that slowed me as there is NOTHING on the internet about their removal (for this specific model).

My wife and I love this update to the look!

Great project!! I can’t see handles in your photo. Are they there and just hard to see or do you still need to reattach them. Curious, what length and layout is your TB AS?

Handles are there, the wood panels makes them go stealth it seems. This is a 27TBFB.

Thanks!

Can you send any further details on the part #'s etc for the panel, fitted dimensions, and other learnings on removing the old SS panels and handles? You've inspired us to the sincerest form of flattery; copying! (imitation)...



Thanks and enjoy!

I posted the details over on the Tommy Bahama Airstream Facebook page - but here goes:

Ordered the laminate 48x96 sheet. Took end off of fridge (don’t waste your time looking on the internet on how to, message me), pulled the plastic stainless out and traced for size. Used a very sharp razor knife and a straight edge and scribed over and over the cuts until it went through (light pressure), laid new panels over the top of old stainless panels, slid back in and buttoned up ends of doors. Done

Tt’s Nevamar Macchiato pattern WF0011. I googled Nevamar distributor and had to special order (1 week). Did a will call. Comes rolled in a box. Came in at $73 for the laminate.

If you decide to do it, PM me and I can walk you through the door end cap removal. That was the trickiest part as there are NO online or printed removal instructions. I just figured it out without breaking anything! You can also e-mail me at: nasvilleairstreamer@gmail.com
