Hi! It has been a while since I was on this site, but now I need help. We have a 1982 Fiber Stream
. Took a rock hit in the front Driver's side window at some point, and during a heatwave a few weeks ago, the pane exploded, sending tempered glass pieces everywhere. It was the fixed pane that broke, not the slider. I contacted a local glass shop, and they quoted $150-$200CDN for the work, if I bring in the whole unit. I did check on buying a complete new unit, and it was priced at about $700CDN deliver here, so I am fixing it.
I've removed the window successfully, along with the rain gutter above it, but it was quite a job. Rather than the expected RV window putty that I have worked with before (and have on hand), it appears that both the window and the rain gutter were installed with some sort of silicone-like clear caulk, maybe Mono brand. It never leaked, but it is really difficult to remove it, and I will succeed. My questions are:
1. What was used to "factory-install" Fiber Stream windows
. Do I have after-market work here?
2. What have you used when re-installing windows
with a 1/8" fiberglass wall covered with a 1/8" interior wall panel?
3. What should I use?
Thanks in advance;
