No joke, Pahaska is fearless when it comes to diggin' in! The windows on the '03 that open are tiny too, very little space to work with.

Funny Dave-O, my maiden voyage was taking the Bambi down to Brandi's family farm for a week to help her grandfather out.

I'm now a certified Farmall operator complete with attachment certs!

Well ...

the Scamp was easy, just the normal SOB sliding windows. Aside from a back ache when I was done, it was no big thing.

I haven't looked at the International since it has factory tinted windows and it is 10 miles away in the storage yard. I suspect I would have to remove the windows and remove the mounting hardware from the glass to do it right.

Thankfully, that's not a question I need to address.

Current unfinished projects ... a wine rack on top of the refrigerator cabinet and finish trimming out my changes above the sink. I bought a 30A weatherproof RV outlet, wire, and CB so I will have 30A power to where I can reach the trailer very soon. When I can stay reasonably cool inside the trailer, I'll bring it home and get on with the work.

There are several companies on the internet that sell solar screens. Below is one link. The link below even shows you the tools required and how to do it. You can probably find solar screen material at Loew's and Home Depot, I haven't looked yet.

Thanks for the tinting info. I'm going to remove our windows and tint them myself. I love a challenge.

Window Tint

I don't mind a challenge once in a while but I hate to wall papaer and feel window tinting would be even harder. My wife has taken most of the old tint off of the windows and we are getting ready to replace the Schledle Channel. I figure I would have the windows retinted when I do this. We have a family friend that tints windows (Business and Auto), they said it would be no problem to fo this for pennys on the dollar. They have done a couple of our vehicles and they looked great. The thing that I would be afraid of is not getting the tint to stick to the windows. I have seen cars that people have tinted themselves and they have big airbubbles in the tint. I don't know why they would leave it like that, maybe they just got fed up with it and that was the best they could do. Anyway, I figure that I will learn how to do it from a trained professional and get some experience with it as I go. I don't think that the tint that we are going with, you can run down to the parts store and get. This stuff is one way mirrored with a smoke tint over the mirror side. It's good to have close friends that have a variety of skills. It's nice to have a sight like this when tackling a project that your not sure of. Thanks to everone that gives thier input on projects. Many times, I can go through old discussions and get answers to my questions that I have for my RV. This is a big help.
