"I fastened the roof to the top rail frame under the curved side cap.  I used a 4" wide seam of 221 caulk, hex rubber sealed self drilling screws, and covered the top of the screws with sealant.  The roof has been subjected to heavy…"

"Why did you choose to screw it on top?  I would think that will lead to leaking.  It's more work to bend it over the side, but probably less prone to leak, don't you think?  CM"

William Martin replied to Linda Peterson's discussion cloudy plexiglass windshield restoration?
"As I understand it you are never supposed to use regular glass cleaners or paper towels on plexiglass - it causes the surface to become cloudy and also leaves minute scratches.  I found that out too late. :(  There are special cleaners to…"

William Martin replied to John Scott's discussion Electrical Tail Light problems Need help A.S.A.P.

"We once had an axle changed right at the manufacturer's shop.  I don't know where you are getting quotes from.  The ones I mentioned above were done by an RV repair shop that specializes in axles.  I don't know where…"

William Martin replied to Robert Wesner's discussion Axle Swap / Upgrade?
"I agree with Chuck - axles are not the only issue.  The construction of the trailer may not be suitable to your use.  And brakes must definitely be upgraded.  We recently had 3500 lb axles replaced on a '63 because the brake and…"

I fastened the roof to the top rail frame under the curved side cap.  I used a 4" wide seam of 221 caulk, hex rubber sealed self drilling screws, and covered the top of the screws with sealant.  The roof has been subjected to heavy rain and snow with no leaks to date (3 years).  I did look at rolling the roof over the side however the attachment points on the side frame were spaced every 24".
