I had to release the sheet at the top as it did not fall tight to the wall as I wanted it to. So I pulled it back a bit & re glued it. When dry I will try & pull it back down tight on the roof. It's hard to pull, no where to grip.

This definitely is not the easiest thing I have done so far. The glue works excellent. The 2 pieces touch, bang that's it. While in the process of setting up the wedges I had for the under hang to press in with, the drivers side piece touched together before I had time to place it flat. Poop happers. I had to cut a 2 foot square out, reheat to remove, then reglue. That's the 2 x 4 in the picture pressing it together just under the fold . Definitely was a 2 person job. Its on now & I'm not crying. This is the hardest piece of filon to put on. It will be spliced together like so many other. When painted you won't see it.....I hope.

With jobs like that (also re-laminating countertops) use spacer strips from the same material about 1-1/2" wide. The material applied will not stick directly to the glue. Remove the spacers one by one pressing the laminate in place.
It's a big job you're tackling there all by yourself. Sometimes it is better to have the extra pair of hands helping you. Keep posting the pictures

The other problem is bending the filon around that front. The filon is stiff & it has to be pushed tight as it is gluing down. I went with a couple of scenarios before doing it this way. But hind sight as looks better.

Ok I took the trimmer to the sides & bottom. The very top has to be reglued as it will follow the contour now. The glass is tight at the sides but what appears to be delamination is actually me not pressing it on hard enough when first put on. That I can fix with glue & pressure. I"m a little happier after I trimmed it. At least it has plywood backing now not cardboard.

I bet the frame on the 1998 would be heavier than present units they build.
I always like projects like that. The custom built units in the 70's had at least a ply layer on the outside. Every unit I see now the tin is right on the studs. All to save weight. But how long will the life span on a unit will be?


Do you work part time on your unit or full time?
