I am still going over here in Nor-cal. Getting a lot of rain, and thinking to myself I might take a different route than I was planning about the windows. Almost every single window is leaking, even though I have caulked them all numerous times. I have been pretty frustrated...and then currently pretty calm and figuring it out. I was planning on covering up a few windows. Now I am considering taking out all the windows, spending the time to put sheet metal over all the windows and then adding quite a few other windows that are leak free! I have some questions...I have a 1980 33 foot Thomas Built deisel pusher with a Cat engine. She is great, but old, and windows DONT want to stop leaking.
1. Is it possible to put any other kind of windows into a bus, or do I need RV windows? Will other windows break when I drive them? I'd like as much natural light as I can get. Any leads on websites or people to call for new windows? Inexpensive...if possible? But quality is more important.
2. Is there any great way to get super old bus windows to stop leaking? Like a fool proof way? The leaks are coming in at numerous places. Where the frames meet the bus, where the window meets the frame, where the window slide splits... Each window is improving as I've been working nearly non stop on it, but we just got a storm and it got soaked in there.
3. Does anyone with an older bus have a good experience of leaving the windows in? Or do I need to stop being niave and just remove the windows?
Well, if anyone has any ideas, thoughts please holler back at me!
In the mean time, here is where I am at currently in the bus. In photos below...
The photo attachement thing keeps not working, a few posted...So, I'll have to do that later. I do have an instagram account that I update all the time... it's MagicBusLife
