All you really need is a measurement of the depth from the center of the window.
With your skills I'm confident you know how to center and square the rest.
Thank you, I posted that picture in hopes it might be of use to someone sometime.
Are the window locations fairly consistent? That is one reason I was thinking I should use the hinge depth, but your probably right I could work from depth at center of window.
In the earlier pictures you can see how the old mount was way offset to the right of the center of the window.
I tentatively plan to have new mount span from seam to seam of the ensolite piece under the window. Probably taking the piece of ensolite that was on the old bunk mount and patching the right side. I'll just paint
the new mount white after tabbing in or cover with some sort of white panel from the home improvement store.
Hoping that by laying a piece of ensolite bigger than the area to be patched over the wall and cutting both patch and wall ensolite at same time my patch will have seams that are very thin. Works pretty good for carpet patches. May blend in with a bit of caulk or touch up the black edges with white paint
. Wonder if anyone else has tried this and if it worked ok?
Or I could just run the new mount to cover the whole "slot", still have to paint
it, no ensolite to cover it with since it will certainly NOT match the piece I took off the old mount.
Welcome any opinions on fit to ensolite cut or center on window and patch "extra" slot in the ensolite. Of course in the end I will do it the way DW thinks is best.
