Now I would like to know where to find the small grey c Chanel that goes around the edge of the skin on the 2 forward side windows on a early 60's Airflyte and Astrodome.
Also what are we calling it.
Was it originally assembled dry and how is the best way to seal it now.
Thanks again everyone. I am really taking more than I'm giving right now. The airflyte I'm working on is a neighbors and they are not as inflicted with the disease as Debbie and I are and it is going to be a stock rebuild with a few common upgrades.
When we finally get this done and get a Trotwood finished we also have in progress we will begin our Astrodome and when we do I will be showing quite a few new and unique ideas I ha vent seen here that I have banging around up inside my noggin.
I'm going to have to find a more secluded place to work on them or I will never get to our Astrodome for all the inquiry's we get while doing them
Our last camper was a 40ft Prevost. Know something we have here that is very much like them?
Geezer bate they both are HUGE geezer bate. Just start up a project and they both atract a crowd. We will have people drinking our coffee, eating our cookies
Its all good i love it.
Again where do I find that window rubber?

yeah, that is it, and there is no known good way to ever get it seal right.
about all you can do is put the trim on the aluminum, put in the window, push it out until it contacts the gasket, put your trim pieces in to hold the glass there, then hand tighten the outside screws around the window, to tight and you will break the glass.
I put a very very small amount of silicon inside my gasket every 4 inches or so and in the corners to keep it attached to the aluminum.
