Doug (Old Buddy) and I went today to tear down the windshield on My Other Honey. Big nasty job. We ran into Tom Crossman(Classic 69). He was buffing her out for spring. It will be awhile before I get to the buffing stage. Always great to see fellow CCCC members. Lots of work left to do, but the shield is down. Thanks Doug .

Somebody(s) gonna want some documentation of all that you encountered along the way. There have been many asking about this over the years for both transport reasons as well as leak chasing! 

And I know you didn't ask, but I've been doing some window work lately. The word on the street these days for bedding windows and hatches is:

Sikaflex 291 or 3M 4000.   Used both and both work very well!

Thanks Lee,

We will take photos along the way. The side supports under the window support beams are a mess. Nothing left there. As you know from being in her in a rain storm, she was a bit on the leaky side. This should tighten up that. I plan on using Sikaflex  in the LC or long cure version. Q, gave me that tip. He has done this job and has been a great resource. Stay tuned. Hope all is well.

I sent a blue print from Chris Craft with instuctions on the WS  take down for a 1967-chris 42-Double Cabin. Char downloaded into the "files".       Bob

Thanks Bob. I used it for reference

I recognize that view! Did the same last winter and I am currently cutting new mohagoney ply panels to replace those rotted ones. I used white oak to replace the runner. Use lots of Sika and lots of clamps!! If you broke screws on the forward wind shield you can release the threaded plates that some of them screw into from the salon and just tap them through and vicegrip them out of the plates. then just reuse them.
