Anyone carpeted the metal work on your sliding door?
I've just done the metal work on my lwb t5 and am not sure what to do with the slider, any photos or links would be great.
Cheers :confused:

and any tips on how to get a nice finish on the carpet around the seal lines. Did I see someone saying use a soldering iron or hot knife to make a clean edge on the carpet or is a good set of scissors best?

I tried to use my soldering iron but it was terrible (knackered). I finished mine off with a lighter and just quickly skimmed down the sides. It crisps it just slightly on the edges to stop any bits fraying or pulling. I did use a new set of stanley blades though to cut it first before I seared the edges.
