Some sort of plastic to look like metal...covers the fur great. I am not sure why people want to save the Rat kinda looks like ummm....rat fur!

I understand the need to cover the Rat Fur, but the trouble of making it thought is just make the Scamp the way you want it, and enjoy! Scamps are not very aesthetically pleasing in the first place, the fun part is all the customizing that can be done, and it's simplicity compared to other campers. These small campers are like pets, they start to resemble their owners

That's how Scamp has done it in the bathroom on my Scamp - cant see why you could not do the same.

Wow, what great ideas. I'm going to go to Home Depot, Lowe's, and Ace this weekend to take a look. The hardest part for me is just making a decision! Thanks for the idea, Brian -- I like what you used and if caulking and adhesive works, I'll probably just do that. Thanks!

No thanks to the adhesive. I want something I can remove if I grow tired of it, or if it gets damaged, or...

I'll stick with the Velcro since I can't figure out how Joy found enough space to slip hers in behind. My cabinets seem very tight, hard to get my fingernail behind.

It's not tough to do Nancy, as the carpeting and bubblewrap insulation both compress easily. And Yes, it's a tight fit which is good. The linoleum is quite thick and it was a little tough pushing it behind the upper cabinet while at the same time over the window....while pushing behind the lower cabinet. I just took slow and easy.

One thing I didn't mention is that when I was plotting this mod I thought I wanted something clear to put up so I purchase several different products such as: plastic covers for florescent light and I don't what else. But they were too brittle. I managed to cut the window hole but they broke when I tried to put them over the window and behind the cabinets. I didn't want anything metal or industrial looking.

I've had my back splash up for I'm guessing 10 years or so. I've thought in recent times about changing it out and putting up something a little lighter in color. So that's on my list of potential projects.
