|Window replacement on RL24|
I've recently purchased an RL24 MkIII, and the windows need replacing (cracked). I assume they are the original windows. They are held in place with many small self-tappers, and bedded in a marine silicone (I assume). Being new to RL's I haven't seen others up close to compare, so I don't know if there is a standard way to do this.
Has anyone else tried this? What method did you use?
I was thinking of ditching the screw/silicone method in favour of using one of the current 'bedding/sealing/adhesive' compounds (eg Sika have one especially for this purpose). However, without a recess frame for the window to sit it, I wonder how hard it would be to install.
And is any perspex suitable? Or is there a 'marine' version (isn't there always? :-)
Basically any feedback on this would be much appreciated!
