Rv windshield

Post by jdn » December 13th, 2015, 3:40 pm

How do I do an rv windshield without the help of gravity pulling the resin down to the end seal?

Some bottom load but I prefer to just adjust my bridge so the injector has a slight upward angle to the glass and use a little extra resin. It does not take much of an angle to allow the end seal to fill.

On a typical car, you mount the bridge so that the suction cup is above the break. On an RV, I will oftentimes (depending on angle) mount it opposite this, and use the adjustment foot to create a little more angle on the barrel, if that makes sense. Like Brent said, a little more resin and it works fine. I usually charge extra for RV work as well...
