Rod,

I believe on ours there were 4 L brackets on the sides and maybe 3 screws through the top of the frame that attach it directly to the underside of the cabinet.

The blinds had screws through the top metal hanger portion that go through the hanger into the frame and cabinet bottom. I seem to recall the screws being accessible from the back side of the blind.

I believe we undid the strings on the sides and pulled the bottoms of the blinds out from within the frames. Once the blinds are pulled out you can look up behind them and see the screws. Obviously if you’re gonna trash the blinds you can just cut them out and save a bunch of hassle getting behind them to see the screws.

This is all kind of out of order, hopefully it makes sense. We did the same thing to kind of modernize the window treatment.

We also did the bathroom window.

Any questions drop me a note, Terry

My '04 was the same as Terry's '05. I don't think you need to remove the blinds to get to the screws, but it is easier that way. A small mirror may help find the screws. Removing the window boxes was actually pretty easy, except for the one over the kitchen table, as the support bracket is glued to the wall.

Just when you think you’ve beaten all of WRVs methods of attachment, Velcro, square drive screws, 1000s of staples, you get to tackle the “White Glue”!!

They used about a gallon attaching the table to the wall and the valance to the bathroom window!! They must have gotten it on sale.

After talking to Robby at Kustom Coachworks he guided me on how to take out the MCD shades(they just clip in), now after headed for Pendleton for the Whisky fest it goes in to Kustom on Monday to get the soft floor repaired and new laminate installed

For me, taking the MCD shades out was easier than putting them in! The padding on the window boxes made it difficult to push the rail up into the clip. A few fender washers under each clip took care of that. When I built new window boxes, I put the shades in before mounting the box. Even easier. Square drive screws (Kreg pocket hole screws) are easier to use to screw the box to the bottom of the upper cabinet.
