Sounds like a good solution but easier for me to just apply some silicone, they were put in dry as I knew they were coming out again to redo the naca ducts.Lotus-e-Clan wrote:On the side windows ...Eric did a pretty good mod to his Turbo Clan.
He fiberglassed a recessed continuous lip around the inside of the apertures then screwed down poly carb replacement glass into the recess. The Poly carb is then aero-flush with the body. He used something like M3 counter-sunk allen screws (about one per 40 -50 mm IIRC) all around the aperture. The poly carb was seated within the recess using a bead of sealant on the recessed lip. The outside edges of the poly carb can be painted (if necess) to tidy-up the line of sealant visible through the poly carb.
He did the same to the rear glass and said the whole lot (bolted-in rear poly glass and poly side glass) actually added to the rigidity of the shell!
And it does look good too.
On my list of projects ...
Still to test them for leaks.
