Front window repair complete

Posted 06-15-2012 at 07:33 AM by motrbungalow

Armed with weather stripping, butyl tape, glazing, and new window cranks from VTS we set about replacing the front window. The previous owner had installed plexiglass which he seated in the frame with silicone caulk. We removed the plexiglass and scrubbed away the silicone. The new window looks fantastic. So clear you can see through it ;-)
