What was the backer you use and was there elephant skin/ensolite on the wall?

I used 1/8th inch plywood and glued arborite (formica, wilsonart) to it. Then I stuck the peel and stick to the arborite for the backsplash. I also glued arborite to the countertop and tabletop. Then I added aluminum transition strip fir a retro look.Click image for larger version

Hi,
Newbie here, did you glue the 1/8 plywood to the fiberglass, then the arborite?

Also, Donna mentioned putting linoleum right over the carpeting. I have very thin carpeting and wondering the cons of putting flooring right on top. Sure would be easier

thanks!
Julie

The arborite is glued to the plywood then the peel and stick to the arborite. It was all set in place, tucked under the top cabinet gap and set on top of the cabinet frame. The countertop was installed afterwards.

I would remove the carpet for the mew flooring. Carpet tends to hold water if it gets wet. More so if its under laminate. Also will the lower cabinet doors be able to open with the new flooring and carpet combined.

Looks like it's time now to start testing things out....

Hello, I am doing exactly the same thing to my 76 boler. Research I have done indicates the tiles would not stick as the surface is not smooth. You need a smooth surface such as arborite, smooth acrylic, painted plywood. I am choosing arborite as it is thin and I was able to buy a

2 x 4 off cut for $5.

My issue is what adhesive to use to attach it to the ensolite, and would I need to secure it in another way as well. Anyone have suggestions?

How did you attach the plywood to the wall?

It isn't attached to the wall. I had the counter top off so I was able to tuck the top behind the upper cabinet and rest the bottom on the lower cabinet. then it got pinched in place when I installed the new counter top.

Thankyou, I am also going to tuck the arborite up a little behind the top cabinets and in behind the lowers. I am planning on using an automotive spray adhesive on the back of the arborite for some added bonding.

.

+10 the click together 100% waterproof floating vinyl flooring is pretty nice. I did the main floor in th Trillium today, I’ve got the dinette area and trim left to do. I removed old carpet and knocked the high spots off the original fiberglass floor. Cleaned up a couple of areas with acetone and green scrub pad where the old glue would show.

I got the Shaw branded stuff at Lowes.

I believe the Allure branded stuff is water resistant not water proof. I think it is because of the glue on it.

Tried the automotive spray adhesive on both ensolite and back of arborite it did not work. It seemed to hold in some places but not a solid adhesion, didn't think it would be strong enough to hold the peel and stick tiles. The arborite pulled off without much difficulty even after 48 hours. Now to figure out something different.

I glued the arborite to some 1/4 inch plywood. It sits on top of the frame for the lower cabinets and is tucked under the upper cabinets. I had the countertop removed to do this.

Thank you , I did see your information earlier. I am concerned a little about the thickness as I am not removing the window above the stove. The original counter has a lip that comes up about an inch, I did tuck the arborite down behind it, did the same at the top, this was a little tricky when trying to remove the arborite. I am wondering if I an cut away the ensolite and glue right to the fiberglass, or would this casue sweating/condensation in the area.

It might cause sweating. The walls under the ensolite is quite rough. The tiles might not stick too well.
