Rear Window Seal on '54 Flying Cloud
Rear window has leaked in the past (judging from water damage inside). May still leak - not yet tested. I know the gasket is marginal and it appears the P.O. tried to apply some sort of sealant in the past. I have read that the proper fix is to remove the entire window frame from the trailer in order to replace the gasket. I also read that many of these frames are held in with screws. Unfortunately mine are riveted (with LOTS of rivets).
1. Can I apply sealant as a temporary fix?
2. Assuming I need to remove the entire window frame, how hard is it to drill out this type of rivet?
3. Assuming I get the window out, can I reintall it with screws instead of rivets?
