My first post,
So i removed the 5 ft long X 12 inch high deadlights in my 27 ft Balboa
as they were in horrible shape and leaking when i bought her last week. i found that the rubber that seals
the plexi to the alum extrusion frame was toast and crumbly i found some of the same profile and just tried to reinstall the old plexi as a test (amazingly i never snapped on the way out) prior to breaking one of the new replacement plexis and, my my its not easy. rubber slipping everywhere, mission aborted all afternoon, nothing broken yet!
The thing is the old crumbly sealing rubber was somehow fused together at the ends to form a belt configuration. it seems as i need to get that done first as i cant tape it in place with all the soapy water
. Do you fuse them together with 3M weatherstrip adhesive
or??? do you have to? Is this a job for a competent octopus or am i a incompetent boob? Is this easy for everyone else?
I would be grateful if i could hear from someone successful at handling this task.
Proven once again I dont know everything.
