Vinyl siding is very rare in CA, so I used pieces cut from 3" vertical vinyl
blinds. A big package of them was only $10 at Home Depot and they can be cut
with stout scissors or light metal shears.
PVC *is* vinyl, since the letters stand for poly vinyl chloride. PVC cement
is much more secure than silicone, which doesn't bond really well to vinyl
(but enough to hold end plates).
