Finish the Van Windshield. Heading for the Cabin


Windshield Project.

The last couple of days I have been finishing up the repair on the windshield opening in the Van.

I put the last couple pieces of fiberglass on Thursday.


It takes a while for the epoxy to set up so it won’t be till late afternoon before I can trim the cloth and sand the area. Then I’ll put a second coat of epoxy over the whole thing and let it set until the next morning.

The Next Morning.

Once the fog burned off and the sun warmed things up, I did a light sanding on the whole opening. After that, I painted the opening with Rustolium Red Oxide Primer.

Here it is, painted with all the masking removed.


If you remember, the whole thing was rusted and full of holes. This is what the worst spot looked like at the beginning.


Here is what it looks like now.


Windshield installation. Not!

I called the outfit that was going to install the windshield to see if they could install the windshield on Friday. Unfortunately, since it has been a couple of weeks since I was there last, they sent my windshield back to the distributer so they had to re-order it.  That means I can’t get the new windshield until I get back from the cabin. I made an appointment for Oct. 7.

Heading for the Cabin.

Tomorrow (Sunday) I’ll be heading up to the cabin to celebrate my 75th Birthday.
I won’t be back until Oct. 5 so no posts until after then. If for some reason I have to go into town for something I will try to publish then but don’t count on it.
