Post by Away » Sun Jul 21, 2019 6:44 am

A few posts earlier that seemed to confuse members about what I was attempting to accomplish.

Won't that leave a gap and a lot of drafts ?

What your not seeing is the 1/4" wide piece of weather stripping on 2 of the windows (look close) ran out for the last window in the image.

So how are you 'locking' them closed now? Are you using the old slide clip but just glass on glass - and doesn't that mess with your weatherstripping?

Looks good! I want to tint my windows and get rid of the chrome. I had planned on trying to paint them black as I want a cleaner look as well. I may have to give this a try.

Was it hard to remove chrome? Would it be reusable if things go south?

Thank you.

Thanks for the offer, Ken. I'll probably wait until I'm closer to tackling the project, or at least at the boat before I call.

This is a great forum; always learn something.

Thanks again.

Have the screens and the tracks. The tracks are in place, loose, the screens are stored behind the side panels. If required takes two minutes to install all four screens. Easy peasy.
