Steve, I have been on vacation for a week. Thanks for the info on the brackets you made. I think I visualize it better now. Nice work on the windows so far. I cleaned and polished mine this past winter. It is a multi-piece job , fairly tedious. Glad I'm done. I have 2 doors to eventually rebuild. When the time comes I would love to draw on your expertise. Ed

Putting the window back together. Instead of using a glue, I used ribbon sealer to seat the gasket. Ribbon sealer is used for auto glass replacement and can be bought at Auto Zone. I cut a small piece and hand rolled it to a longer piece, placed under the window frame, when I closed the frame and applied 3 tiny screws the sealer flatten out to make a perfect seal.

Before I install the 3 side windows I need to prep around the window openings. First is to tackle the very long drip cap which I left attached to the trailer. I took out in my case 2 end screws, I will replace them with rivets when done. I bent the drip cap up just enough to get a compounding pad and steel wool pads, and went at it. Position the drip cap back into place then started with 0000 steel wool pads to clean around the drip cap and around the window openings. The one picture showing under the drip cap was polished.

Set the door brackets and back supporting brackets today and did a trial fit on the door, not bad, but I will wait until the floor is in, then will tweak the door for the proper fit.

Finished setting the last window today, used plenty of Trempro 635 shown in below picture, cleaned the overflow with thinner. Just a few more hours and I will be 100% done with the windows.

The windows look great. Are you buck riveting those back in or are you using Olympics?

I'm doing something similar to your project.... loads of time and patience.

So how many cuts have you gotten on your fingers?

For the windows I'm using olympic rivets with loads of trempro 635. I have gone thru about 5 tubes of the stuff so far attaching the running lights, door stops, door hinges, etc......Today I ran one of the wires to a wire brush down the finger nail about a 1/4 inch.
