    convertible repair

    Post by Admin on Mon Oct 10, 2011 8:33 am

    it's a long story about how it got broken--trying to use it as a pickup truck--1997 chrysler sebring---new glass and install--1000 +

    plexiglas--60 bux

    i used clear silicone adhesive and pop rivets---so far so good

    i hope it holds up--the process works on aircraft, right??

    when it comes back i'll snap some pics---didn't want to jinx it by taking pics before it went out on the road--as of sunday afternoon, it hadn't leaked, after a good 12 hrs of soaking rain--with occasional downpours

    i think we got about 3 inches--maybe a little more

    Should work. I use a product called GeoCell. It never hardens and sticks like mad...seems to hold up really well. If I can't find any, I have NO problem using silicone. Always make the holes through the plex about twice the diameter of the rivets or they have a tendency to crack.
