doc73 you are correct. wicked1, due to the fact that the kitchen is in the big slide (heavy enough as is), I felt I couldn't go with a "real" tile......too heavy!

Time will tell (whether they stay stuck) but, while DW was shopping for the "tile" a contractor told her to heat the sheets and wall with a hair dryer to promote adhesion. Also, make sure the surface is completely clean. I used mineral spirits to clean the wall.

Good luck on the repair. At least plastic can't weld itself to the metal threads. With some finesse that tool should back it right out.

This wasn't today but the other day, I have been out doing a pre-camping season checking on things; taking loose the access panels and looking to see if anything has broke, etc.. I opened a cabinet over the couch and started rearranging the junk up there. Opened the cabinet above the sink and started to wonder, do we need all these bowls? After a season or two, starting to thin out the stuff I thought we would need four years ago. It has a way of accumulating.

I've found about once every other year I need to go through and cull the heard of unused junk build up.
