New front screen arrived, but not yet in

21 07 2011

The new windscreen has arrived. All shiny and beautiful. Laminated safety glass which will not shatter into 1000 small pieces as the old tempered glas did. Made in Finland, delivered first to Boxershop in Bavaria and then shipped to Berlin. Took the Fins eight weeks to make and send it. Tonite we wanted to put it in, and we had it all perfectly prepared: Rubber seal made slippery with silicon spray and lots of liquid soap, a cable around the seal to pull the inner lip over the edge of the window frame. Two guys were pushing the screen from the outside while one was pulling the cable from the inside. The first half worked beautifully. Then the inner lip of the seal somehow ripped off over 20 cm. We had to give up for today and I have to order a new seal. Probably it was a mistake not to go for a new seal from the start.

Fame at last – I was there – I was one of the “two guys” 🙂
