Windows and Trim and other misc stuff…

Posted by blogadm on May 13, 2021 in uncategorized |
Don’t forget to take the tape paper off all the sides before you install them….learned that the hard way…
Now those solid windows have to be held in with a black tape as well as the keepers.
Larry always responds to my questions. Thanks Larry, you are the best!
Cleaning the frames with Mothers and 0000 steel wool. Then with a buffer on my drill.
See that shine?
This frame was bent pretty bad, so Frank torched it, heated up the metal and used blocks and a clamp to try to straighten it.
Pretty, Pretty, Pretty, Pretty Straight!
New glass, cleaned, polished , new discs and seals installed.
These gave us a lot of grief. We had glass cut a few times, we ended up using Plexiglass/Lexan and a RV window seal. I am not happy about the color but i am thinking of a rubber paint to lighten it up.
With the Eyebrow all shined up and we put the screws around it before paint to have the authentic look of the original installation without all the leaks.. hopefully…
I need to stress this again, don’t forget to take ALL the paper off the tape before installation.
The big front window goes in.
Waiting for the back window glass, had to be cut a few times.
Ahhhhh, yes the Shasta Emblem
We put all the wires in this plastic sleeve to protect them.
It works!
Now for the brake inspection…
The Magnet makes the brakes work. I am learning a few things today, will i remember? Well…
I found out what the slot was for, ordered a custom piece for it.
Also found out what this bottom slot was for and ordered something for that as well.

Nearing the finish line?

Posted by blogadm on July 27, 2020 in uncategorized |

It’s July 2020, the year of the Pandemic, can it be possible that we now have the time to finish Peaches? The last few weeks we have been getting her ready to go to the painter. We finished building the door, dry fit the windows, side lights and struggled with the front side windows. My […]

Two steps forward and one step back, still gets things done.

Posted by blogadm on June 24, 2018 in Shasta Love |

It has been a few years since my last post. Since then we have changed our minds on a few things. First and most noticeable will be that after all the shellac testing and talking about keeping it original, in the end, i didn’t like the color combo with my Peachy , Coral colors. So […]
