Need help (newbie)
1992 34 foot gas legacy
Ok here it goes:
I have some tears in the side around windows. I know i can fiberglass them when i fix the problem that has created the flexing. I pulled the interior panels off around window and found that the foam is glued to the fiberglass. I have read that when the glue releases from the fiberglass it will cause issues(bubbles, or cuts).
Here is what i think:
The po made panels and placed around inside windows (panel was over the trim not under it) and the window was just floating. When i look at the foam and metal i noticed something out of place. The foam has voids (missing something) between the metal beams. So it is (starting from bottom going up) metal, foam, then a 3" void of nothing, then foam, then around 1.5" void, foam, and window.
What i think i will do:
Find some wood and trim it to fit in void and glue it to fiberglass. Then reattach the interior wall (after removing window) then install window with buthel tape. This way the trim ring, on inside, is over wood wall and would sandwich the window. I think the problem is that there was no support for the window causeing it to vibrate in and out causeing stress. Now there was a water leak at some time, but it is fixed. I will post pictures of issue later tonight when i get home. It was late when we got done and forgot.
(1) What do you think about voids between foam?
(2) What bonding glue do i use to bond the wood to fiberglass?
(3) Do you thing i am on the correct course or should back up and punt.
P.S. I did a intro in the newbie section and here is a pic of our ride.
