This video went a bit long so I had to split it up. And it takes all day or night for them to upload to You Tube. But here's the first part. Please remember that I make these videos for people who are new to this so much of it may be boring for you experienced people....
Looks Great! I think I'll end up doing the same with the plexiglass. Though about tempered glass but I'm not sure if it would be any less susceptible to breaking. Again, thanks for you efforts...your entire video series has been great.

Great video....very clear and easy.
And I get a pat on my back....this is basically the solution that i came up with minus the gutterseal part...I may pull mine out and do that. Wish I had an air nailer/stapler though....was a b.....ch to nail the stops in.
If anyone has a Tap Plastics in their area...they are a great resource for plexiglass. I used the premium acrylic...may upgrade if I go again to the museum quality stuff which is suppose to be highly abrasion resistant and has uv protection too.
Yep it's not a new idea from what I hear but the stapler gun really does help. You can get one like that at Harbor Freight for about $39. A box of staples costs $20 LOL... Thanks for the kind words. Im not a pro at this and Im still learning but I do like to help others out by making the videos. If you'll notice, there are no ads on my videos. Very rare on U Toob. I figure they are boring enough without puting ads on them too. LOL... I'll keep making them if people keep getting something out of them.
God grant me the strength to restore the trailers I can,
The courage to strip the parts from the trailers I can't,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
Another way to anchor the sticks is trim screws. Pre-drill a 1/8 inch hole. The trim screw will bury it's head and you can use wood putty to hide the small hole. It's not as quick as a nailer, but works for me.
