Here is a link to photos for installing new plexiglass front and rear windows
with new gasket and lockstrip on a Boler
I used Armourall as a lubricant.
I will add captions and more detailed instructions at a later date once I install the rear window.
The gasket and lockstrip came from Scamp
. Be very specific about the amount you want to order and let them know it is for a Boler
. My order was misinterpreted and they sent only enough to complete one window with about 3 extra feet. (I imagine this is the size of the Scamp
Window) The remainder should arrive next week.
The Lockstrip Tool
can be purchased from http://www.allglassparts.com/sections/contact-us
It is well worth the money. I previously re-installed my old plexiglass after a paint
job and used screwdrivers to install the lockstrip .It took about a day for each window. With this tool and some Armourall for lubricant, it took about 15 minutes.
Today's project is to re-assemble and re-install the side windows
which have been painted and have new plexiglass.
A note on painting
Aluminum. I have etched the Aluminum to accept paint
but am already starting to notice the paint
flaking from the surface as I re-assemble the windows
. I am not sure how it will stand up over time. A simpler option would be to simply polish the aluminum with steel wool.
