Copper kills mold and keeps it from coming back.
Any copper solution such as copper sulfate works well.
You can get copper sulfate off eBay if you can't find it locally.

Now if I can get some gasket on without screwing up I'll be a happy camper. We just put on the second gasket and it's going to have to come off again, we put it on upside down.

This upside-down stuff is my greatest fear.

Nah. After the first two times you'll get used to putting it on wrong!!

Just kidding!!

It's really not hard. Just don't cut the pieces to put them in, make one long strip all around, and, uh, do it right. When the gasket comes it will be pretty obvious. You can also put a pen mark or some dots on the side of the gasket where the glue goes. We looked at it so much it all stopped making any sense.

Now that replacment glass is available, there is not too much to be afraid of.

The gaskets are a messy job, but the windows look so good with shiny clean new spungy gaskets.

how close to original does it look?

That's a good thing because in anticipation of my new windows coming I started checking into mine a bit. Can you post a picture of what the gasket looks like one it's in place? I remember a graphic of what it looks like (and I recall 2 "fins" which I am hoping go inward so you don't end up seeing them. The very hard ancient gaskets that I have just look like a solid "rope of rubber" layed around the window - when finished, do the replacements look the same? I hope so because it's a nice clean look. I'll be ordering up my gasket material very soon. You got it from inland, right? Thanks!

I'll try to get a picture up tomorrow for you. Yes it looks like a new version of the hard and crumbling old stuff. I ordered 50 feet of the stuff from Inland along with the adhesive stuff to. (aka "swamp snot" here in my little world) Andy's web site shows the gasket profle very good. The fins point away form the opening. Pics tomorrow.

Sorry if this thread has been hijacked.....

Ingrid won't mind....

.....us hijacking her type 3 window thread! I was so close to finding out whether I have the elusive and much preferred types 3's but two stubborn little screws will keep me in suspense for another week. I appreciate the picture posting in advance and I'll also check out Inland's site....Thanks Tedd!
