    No matter what, stuff will suffer wear and this at floor level being probably from the tips of little feet I imagine (girls just can't get close enough to that sink) :Laughing: but there is always a cheap answer.

    Or this?

    I think this but I'll let the boss decide before sticking

    The panel below the fridge was also getting tired from being on and off plus water damage.

    Anodised aluminium strips drilled and countersunk for stainless screws

    Greetings,

    If you 'attack' the ally angle iron with T Cut (other products are available LOL) I think it will come up to a 'mirror' finish and look quite smart.

    I used Solvolautosol :thumb:
    The angle is 10x15x1mm, less than £5 at my local ironmongers.
    Wifey just texted to say GLUE IT !! :Cool:

    A continuation of the theme. This section from above the fridge was suffering wear from wifey catching it with kitchen wear.I thought I would be able to manually form the left over aluminium angle and it worked. Simply glued with left over Sikaflex again and clamped for a few hours before trimming the aluminium.

    Can't photograph it as the van is away at the moment but I made a cover for the glass top to our 4 burner hob so that this becomes extra worktop area and if anything falls out of the cupboard above it won't break the glass.

    I used a bit of left over kitchen wallboard finished to match our worktops. Its about 1/4 inch thick and stays in place as it gets trapped between the cooker top and the window over the cooker and I made a couple of holes to take the two proud hinges from the glass top so it can't move at all. Lift the front edge and it can be pulled out easily to use the hob.

    Well Andy what can I say ,the added trim bits look superb and indeed enhance the overall look of the MH ,perhaps you should send the pics to Rapido HQ and you may find yourself part of the design team.
    Thankfully I bought an older quality MH that at ten years old is showing no signs of wear even with 2 young kids and a dog!
    Thank god for British workmanship and Autotrail! :BigGrin:
