Re: REFLECTOR: Re: Window Installation
My method was similar to that mentioned earlier with some small
differences. I deduced this method (read"copied") from Malcolm et al.
I marked & cut the fuselage as per plans. I cut the windshield opening
slightly too large.
I marked the glass as described earlier (tape & knife). I then used a
dremel to "rout" the lip for the outer skin. Using wedges, the glass
was microed in place.
Then sand a 1" boarder around the window overlaping the window itself
buy 1/2" all the way around (I'll get back to the windshield in a
second). Then microglass and 1 layer of fine bid overlaping window and
Inside, microlass fillet then fine bid window to inner skin.
Since the windshield was cut too small (Both lower corners), I did the
inside first and let cure. I then sanded the outside of the window
edges to match the contour of the fuselage, filled and sanded a boarder
as per the other windows and again used 1 layer of overlaping fine bid.
All the windows are now 1 layer of fine bid (which has since been
sanded) away from flush.
Looks pretty good!
