We have windows!

We have been working our tails off to get the trailer weathered so we could get it out of Greg's garage. This last weekend brought  us closer to that completion. We got the door on and four of the seven windows in.

 The door is ajar because we didn't have the door hardware yet. It is so nice to see it this far along. Just compare it to the before picture at the top of the blog. One more weekend and we may have gotten two of the other windows in and the door finished up. Unfortunately Greg, the neighbor, had moved his nicest boat out of his garage so we could work on the trailer. The boat has a 454 engine with aluminum heads and he doesn't winterize it because he uses it year round. When Steve went over to talk to him Monday night about needing one more weekend, Greg reluctantly said he really needed to get his boat back in the garage. The forecast here was for weather in the teens and he didn't want his engine to freeze. It was getting dark and beginning to snow when Steve got this news so he had to get it all tarped up and get it out of Greg's place ASAP.  It looks like we won't be doing anymore on the trailer for a while :( But we thank Greg for letting us use his garage as long as he did. We would never have gotten this far on the trailer without his generosity.

This is the rear window. It has cargo doors that go on it too. They will sit below the tail lights.

This is the door from the inside with its new cherry paneling. It was originally metal, but we thought the cherry looked nice. 

 This is the inside view of the front window.

Inside view of the passenger side window. You can see the new screen in this shot. I used the original galvanized type screen when I rebuilt the windows. I now know what a diabetic feels like when they have to test their blood. The screen was very pokey and I pierced my fingers dozens of times while installing the screen...ouch!

This is Dixie our helper...LOL! Dixie is Greg's dog and she is the sweetest dog every. She would often come out to inspect our progress.
