sleeping beauty can see!!

Replaced the galley windows. What a difference! See attached the before and after. Attempted to use exisiting gaskets and this was very tricky. Decided to leave out the gaskets and use a latex caulk to seal up the plexiglass. Did some research on lexan vs plexiglass. Seems that lexan is stronger but wears down faster, if that makes any sense. I chose plexiglass, half the price and not too difficult to work with.
Also started gutting the interior. More pics to come.

WOW what a difference. Will Plexiglas have the same insulation power as glass? It will be fun to see the interior photos.

I doubt there would be any real insulation difference between the 2 unless you where comparing them to dual paned glass.
Can't believe you started restoration so quickly!
