Strange question - I know. If anyone has a magnet and a JP pro (or something with the same material apron) could you check whether it's magnetic from inside the cabinet? Trying to work out how to DIY some lighting without damaging the vinyl and if the apron (That is the pit that holds down the glass on the left and right of the machine right?) is magnetic it makes my life much easier!

I think you mean the rails that the glass slide into. These are metal.

Ah yes those are metal. They are called side rails.

Yes, metal BUT they almost always have a plastic extrusion inside that the glass actually contacts (slides into). No way should glass EVER be directly touching metal - (insert glass EXPLOSION here).

Also - with more folks powder coating they won’t want stuff sticking to them and risking damage (atleast I won’t !).

Yeah I get that - I finished the lighting today, all magnetic and fully removable so I'm fine on that front!
