    So remember that round a corner cabinet sign? I finally took the panels down and the edges were in fact clipped as Gino said but it is only 1/16 of an inch thick and I can't find any of my suppliers to have something in white polycarbonate in a 5' by 8' flat panel sheet or roll stock.

    Any ideas?

    That round corner sign had a pan face in it if I remember correctly. If your replacing with flat piece you might have to go with thicker material because 1/16" might just "flop" out of there. The pan gave it rigidity. Hopefully the track can fit a thicker piece of material.

    Like Johnny said, measure the track and see of you can fit a normal sized poly sheet in there. Make sure there is enough height to the retainer channels too. I'd he nervous if they are 1" or smaller, you might have to screw through the face which might cause it to crack at a later time. I've learned on these pan faces that unless you're replacing it with a pan, I just pass.

    I curse a lot when I come across a screwed in face that won't slide out. And it seems they always use the self taping hex heads.
