Valances

Postby Capt Happy » April 10th, 2022, 7:52 pm

Hi All,

Hope this note finds everyone safe and healthy. I have a question for members.

We have a 1998 320 Voyager and have decided to do a much need upgrade to the interior upholstery. I have removed all the cushions, trim pieces, curtains, etc.

Does any member know how to remove the valances in the main cabin above the windows as well as the forward cabin ? Are they held in with the plastic anchors used on the trim or screwed in from some other point I dont see ?

Any advice or experience in this are would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Don't have the same boat....but ours had plastic and the uppers were held on with velcro......some of the screws in different areas were quite well hidden to say the least.

Good Day All,

Have completed the interior upgrade. Could not get the Valances down without issues. Contractor doing the work, suggested that we wrap the existing ones in place. Very pleased with the results, enough room to tuck the inboard edge along the top of the original material and hot glued the backside. No concerns of bunching up or letting go, nice smooth finish.
Will post some pics, when back on dry land.
Happy and Safe Boating to Everyone.

cheers
