Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

I think it would be nice if the screens were easily removable without tools, but I'm not sure how that could be accomplished in a mobile application with high winds. I think Lorna put her screens on the inside maybe for that reason. Hmmm...

i agree Dan, I'm just afraid of them falling off and blowing into other vehicles. the way i have them right now you just loosen 4 screws, move the retainers and the screen will come out. the new method I'm looking int will use smaller, thinner pieces of metal under the window retention metal strips. ill post pictures once it is done.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

i removed and repainted the dashboard and the area around the shifter headlight switch. found about a pound of dust, filth, pencils, school papers and a 1964 dime in the defroster Chanel. im not sure the brown is the best color for the dash, but it has to look better than the dirty industrial green that it was. i have more to paint and more coats to do but it is a start.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

sealed my broken glass solar panel i bought on ebay with bar top epoxy.
made a dam with tape poured the resin in and smoothed it out:






its still drying, but it has leveled out to be much smoother than in this photo. it also filled in and subdued the cracks in the glass.
