What type electric stove are you putting in?

Since I'm asking questions, on my 96 the front interior roof panel in the bathroom needs to come down. It's held up by the normal plastic pushpins, but at the front it's blocked from coming down by the pocket door trim. There's a small rectangular panel, held by 2 screws with the regular painted wood button inserts. That's easy to remove. (As an aside, what's the best way to remove the wood buttons without damaging the paint?) But there are 2 vertical rounded mouldings at each end of the pocket door pocket. Nothing apparent holding them. Are these just siliconed in place? There is some movement when you tug on them, but I don't want to tug too hard for fear of breaking them. I've got similar moulding at the rear pocket door, so I expect all the pocket door mouldings are similar in this vintage.

Any thoughts?

Tim,

I am also curious about the electric cooktop you're putting in. What can you tell us about it??

John,i suspect two sided tape is holding those moldings in place,a sharp thin knife can be used to cut the tape.

That's the problem, these mouldings are wrap around so you can't truly see the joint. Still think it's tape?

hey guys,
if you look up Princess stove tops, they have an exact replacement to the gas cook top, no modifications other than running a dedicated romex line from the breaker box, its requires a 25 amp supply, I installed a 30 amp breaker

I've been using a razor knife, which does okay. Just wondering if there was something better.

Thanks!

Default 97 WLWB Upgrades

Tim:

Do you think you could post some photos of your "upgrade projects". I'd like to see them and I sure other members would as well.
