i gotta redo mine, becuase the 3M spray adhesive, for some reason (never given me a problem) but the vinyl all around the edges started bubbling from the trim panel..guess i didnt pull it around the back of the panel hard enough or something.

oh well

no biggie.

this time though, should i use those Neo magnets that steve meade used in chickens escalade, or should i just get some industrial type velcro, velcro all around the edge of the entire trim panel, and then like a big X in the middle, and just velcro is to the back of my wall?

now that i think about it, i used hardboard for my trim panel, maybe the glue didnt adhere the vinyl to it good? that brown wood with the real smooth finish...

Screw it in and use button caps.

The caps look just fine.

I used them in my Expo to hold the trim pannels on inside the car. The bass kept shaking them loose, so we did a couple screws with button caps and it worked great.

Just get ones that match the vinyl.

Dont have any pics after we put them on in my car...

Its just a little cap you snap onto the screw head. Its like 1/2" across. Just buy the color that matches the surface its going on and they look just fine.

before you did the caps (when u said it fell off from the bass) how was it connected then? just kinda pressure fitted in?
