Located Pleated shade parts

I was in need of parts for the pleated night/day shades in our motorhome.
I found every part for the shades on Amazon
Just type in pleated shade parts in search bar on amazon.

You may not be able to get the colors of certain shades but braided fishing/spear fishing line has also been used by owners. I happen to have a white roll and used it it operates very smoothly compared to the old blinds cord.
I used a vacuum to suck the cord to far end of channels . Then kept next cord taunt to draw the next one through. You don't want them to tangle .
The hardest part is getting proper tension. Particularly if older really tight fitting fully boxed valances that used just a screw and finish washer instead of spool type clamp. That's what I have. The spools may interfere with the fit at bottom.
