Rare glass collection

Postby stephendell » Wed Jan 16, 2019 1:20 pm

Spent a few hours cutting glass out yesterday and have the scars to prove it!

Not often you see all of these in the same place.

That’s not a nice job hard to get them out all complete with out one cracking, the mastic is pretty hard to cut through will done, not that I want any are you selling them then.

Not selling them, just replacing them all.

If you look closely at the pics they are all delaminated slightly and 1 of each of the A310 sets has a crack.

The GTA ones had a ridiculous amount of Sikaflex on them. The A310 4 Cylinder were the easiest as they looked original and I don't think the mastic/sealant they had in the 70's was so hard setting. Can't apply much pressure though when cutting as the thin fibreglass strip in the centre is quite fragile.
