Sealing the Inside of the Windscreen
Sikaflex was used to add support to the Plexiglass and fill unsightly gaps.
The view after the sikaflex was applied and the edge tape removed. Looks Nice!
I used aluminum tape to seal off the outside. After the sikaflex dried, I peeled the tape off and started fiberglassing the front seam.
I taped off the inside and outside area before sanding and etching the metal.
