What were you thinking posting this? Don't you realize that if ETI starts using this molding as standard the agony this will cause on the build sheet. Personally I'm thinking lime green.

Thanks for all the great feedback. To clarify, in my case it's the exposed ends located inside the cupboards. Photo Attached - maybe.

You should be able to just get some good contact cement onto the fabric and fiberglass and stick that back up.

Do you remember back in the late 60s or early 70s, when Chevy came out with lime green and pink pickups? My grandfather had the line green one.

Years from now, some PHD candidate will be writing a thesis on the origin of "line green".

This looks just like the ceiling of my motohome. Padded ceiling panels are joined by mouldings like that with no visible fasteners. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it is the same system of mounting channel and T-moulding.

It looks fine on our motorhome's ceiling, and seems like a reasonable solution for selected situations if needed... as long as that adhesive works.

I bought a bunch of this T-Moulding from Joe Thoen at Trillium Outback here in Calgary for the Trillium 1300 I am rebuilding. It came with the track and the moulding. I adhered the track where needed with, as well as glued up loose ensolite (vinyl faced foam) with solvent based contact cement.
