Fabricmate Help - ready by slightly confused

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am ready to install the fabric in the tracks...I am using the FS150 square profile and have a front wall and side wall to cover.  The front/side wall share a "common" track for the corners.

 

I kind seem to figure out if it matters if I do the front or side walls first ?  Does it really matter? 

 

Hopefully this makes sense.

 

Thanks,

first rule of applying any new technique is to start in the area least viewed so any potential flaws that are worked out with practice are less noticeable. Other than that I don't think it matters.

If you are right handed work counter clockwise. Right wall, front wall, left wall. That way when you are trying to do some things with your left hand you will be against an unfinished wall and you can't do as much damage.

As someone who has now worked a fair amount with the fabricmate track and GOM fabric, I agree with above.

I don't know if you have the pizza cutter tool from Fabricmate, but I found using it and then a NEW 1 putty knife with a hammer and a VERY sharp pair of fabric sheers to be the best tools to insert the fabric into the groove and cut it without shredding it. GOM is pretty close to burlap and it will SHRED easily.

Make sure your track is firmly attached as you'll be putting a good bit of tension on the track as you tighten the fabric into the track.
