I win. I have finally defeated what was quickly becoming my nemesis. The front window. What a pain that was. A ton of parts to sand and polish. All of these parts start to look alike and confusion sets in. Rivets that were set, drilled out, and reset because of not paying attention. A lot of time was put into this beast. I do want to thank Molly for her help with setting the rivets.
It can be done. You can redo these things but you must be armed with determination, patience, and a whole arsenal of cuss words. Sorry for the crummy pictures in our dark basement but here it is...
Back to my real job for a bit...Stay tuned for more. -Brian
Looks fantastic!! You're da man! I'm too lazy to attempt that so will probably end up painting the forester, window trim and all unless someday I get a wild hair or I can bribe someone to polish for me.
Looks great! Did that take you a long time to get it that polished?
You could say that. If I am counting correctly the window has 43 individual aluminum pieces. All of them were sanded and polished. It is a bunch of work for something like a window. I think that if we were to buy another trailer it would have to be a 58' or something so it would have that simplier Hehr Standard instead of the jalouise.

Just like a couple of commenters before me, Brian...my first reaction looking at the before and after pics was WOW...then when I considered what you did, and how much time you put into that task...I thought WOW...kind of like dejavoodoo all over again...You are going to end up with a museum quality trailer when you are done! No question about it though...if I invested the time and patience in a trailer like you are doing, I'd be working closely with the City regulatory boards and agencies to guarantee when I died, I'd be allowed to be buried in it...lol! Who says you can't take it with you!!
