Use rivets on rockguard channel to Airstream body instead of screws and use screws instead of pop rivets on the channel hinge ends. (4.) Use sealer on the support brackets mounted between the windows. (5.) Do not mount any one piece until all holes are drilled so you won't have drilled, metal particles, shaveings, in between the parts.
Bob,
I do agree with alot of what you have added to this thread. Thank you for your comments.
The part about your having an dial up internet is one of the reason the video is the way it is. The more I put in, the longer it gets, the slower the load to your computer. Or the longer it takes for you to see. The main idea for the video is to give someone the big picture idea of what it takes to install one of these. I have gotten feedback from folks and they did not feel they could do it. Once I helped them (via the phone) they were surpised to find out how easy it was.
I agree that you should use something to stop the drill bit from going in to deep. The places where we went in deep in the video did not cause any damage, (and we knew it would not) But as a rule of thumb it is a very good idea.
Sealing the way you suggested is a better way of doing it.
Great input. Thank you again!!
Dan
Here is a link to the video
just in case someone starts the thread here and wants to know what we are talking about.

Video for Dial-up users

I have had so many people ask if there were some better way to view the video as they have dial-up. That is one of the things we did consider when designing our website(s). We wanted to make sure that dial-up users would have a good experience too. So, keeping that thought in mind we have put a link on our site (and below) so you can go directly to the video. If you click on it, it buffers to your temp files and will still take awhile. If the video times out you may try RIGHT CLICK AND " SAVE TARGET AS..." then remember where you saved it. I had someone try this and it took a long time. They left it downloading, went to bed, and watched it in the morning.

Click here to see the video and download.


Click here to see it embeded from our "How-to" site.
If you are on DSL or faster, or on a Mac, or Linux, embeded is the way you want to go.


Dan

Dan,
Will the rock guard fit the '77 Argosy 6 Metre Minuet windows? The wrap appears to be a little more than in the video. Thanks.

Tim.

The 3 piece rockguard has covers for the wrap windows that are ok.

The cover for the front window must be shortened, in width, for it to fit correctly.

Several owners on this Forums have made the conversion without any difficulty.
