In lieu of filon, I’ve considered light gauge diamond plate sheeting.
Fairly inexpensive and would look good I think.


I’ve thought about that too, I do think it would look good. Do you know what size sheets are available? The piece of filon I’m replacing is 96” x 66”.

My 2012 Arctic Fox came with this on the leading and trailing curves as an option.


Did it have filon between the two curved sections?

Oh, 4’ wide I think is the widest. So 4’x10’ max.

Ok, I have some 3M 1357 to bond the filon to the hardboard backer, does anyone know what I should use to bond the hardboard to the aluminum framing. The original beads of adhesive were white and flexible and seemed to adhere very well. It would have to stand up to high temperatures obviously. Any ideas?
