Will the wallstreet screen plastics fit the Pismo?

I have a wallstreet screen casing which a friend and I removed the rubber from, and I would like to know if it will fit a Pismo. I really like the looks of the bare metal.

Anyone know?

what do you think?

No, there is no commonality between the two series. Of course too, one can pretty much make anything fit just about anything with enough ingenuity, hard work and dough.

One can I suppose glue down some sheet metal onto the Pismo's case. Or maybe some self-adhesive material. Or silver paint. On one project I used wide aluminum tape (kind used to seal ductwork) as a decorative element.

A good size piece of that aluminum tape is a structural element on my old Titanium G4. ;^) (Fixing a bad case of drop-induced "floppy corner" syndrome.) It's a shame that tape usually has printing on the shiny side, sort of ruining its usefulness as a decorative element for large areas.

re: printing on the shiny side

Odd, I've never seen that sort with printing. The type I have (bought at Home Depot) is 2" wide and just shiny aluminum. It burnishes out well, looks rather like real Al once you've got it pressed out nicely. Only problem is the 2" width, stitching together multiple strips shows seams. Still, it can be rather striking if artfully applied.

We use a form of it in our in

We use a form of it in our industry for securing chimney liner insulation. It comes as a roll with a wax paper backing, so that it comes off the roll nice and smooth. I'm fairly sure it comes in 3" rolls too, if not 4". Check for HVAC foil tapes.
