There was finally a long stretch of dry weather, and that meant new window glass installation today! What a big difference between the new tinted tempered and the old clear (well, actually yellowed with age) glass. It’s like the old girl has hip sunglasses now.
Huge thanks to Dwight at Glass Doctor of Knoxville for helping me through the process, and special-ordering all this glass. Airstream window glass wasn’t something they had ever done before, so I promised to provide them with some photos and not hold them responsible if it didn’t work out! 😆 They were fast, friendly, affordable and he packed up all 10 pieces of glass very carefully for a safe drive home from their shop.
Breaking the old panes to get them out made me feel better about the decision to spend the extra money on tempered. It may be overkill, but it sure didn’t take much to crack the old “non-safety” glass, which then rained glass shards everywhere, even after taping them as a safety measure.
This old trailer is getting classier by the day!
