Curling Valances

Has anyone out there experienced the ends of the pattered material valance plaque's curling up on the ends? And if you have what was your fix? Seems like they must be plastic covered in foam and material. They are fastened to the valance with velcro. Maybe they are heat curled? Ideas?

yes - I had this happen on my I3. A few became unattached. I ended up removing them all together.

Fixed them all. They are made of cardboard and the velcro adhesive must have released in our Az/Cal heat. I used 1/4" staples to refasten the velcro to the back of the stick on valance plaques and curling solved.

I have not seen this before. It is a shame that something like this happened and you had to fix it. Glad you were able to take care of it in a way satisfactory to you. However, I must say I am surprised to learn carboard is used in the valance.

The I5 has less hard wood than the bigger coaches too, more vinyl wrapped composites and such. Light weight. On the I5 they have to do a lot to reduce weight to improve CCC. Every little bit helps.

Maybe, we don't usually get that but it has rained for the past two months so could be. Anyway the glue backing pulled off the paper so the 1/4" staples did the trick, I use the small ones on a little desk stapler. And the velcro seems to be holding them now.

Simple fixes are good!
