    The window rubbers look good, how did you do that if I may ask?

    Thanks! In my head, the idea looked better but I’m satisfied

     

    The rubber is like the insulation of electric wires. The real use it’s holding small trees and such. It’s sold in 200m rollsIMG_20180812_110951

     

    Basically, dragged a x-acto inside it to split and glued to the “glass” with small drops of cyano glue

    I think it’s possible to do with electric wire. Pulling at one end, splits the insulation easily

    Haha, excellent – I’m using the same idea for my D90 back windows but I glued the rubber around the frame and I’m now wondering how I put the glass in without it being recessed 2mm or so.. I didn’t even think about surrounding the glass rather than the hole.

    I’m guessing it will be tricky with the curved windows but I’ll see what you do with them first!! 🙂

    Many thanks!

    Yes, the curved windows were tricky. Had to use an heat gun to wrap the “glass” around a tube but the radius was not right

    But i didn’t want to repeat the process and went with it

    Because i couldn’t use the same idea for rubber, did a paste with putty and black paint and applied around the window. Don’t look as nice but fill the gaps and it’s better than nothing 🙂

    Not really an update but modded my tension wheels . The problem is that sand and dirt seems to stuck between the tension wheel and tracks and make the tracks slip off the wheel entirely.

    So, a couple holes on future wheels should improve something:

    In the meanwhile, I’m waiting for a break to finish the last 2 windows
