Re: Glass Sliding Door Restoration

Completed my Glass Sliding Door Restoration today. Overall this was a simple yet big task. I am very satisfied and think the end result looks so much better than what I had, my doors showed their 27 years of use and abuse but in my opinion look better than new now.Turned out my powder coat shop was ...

Found an appropriate aluminum anti seize compound. And chanced upon two stainless steel clevis pins while shopping the local ACE...

Re: Glass Sliding Door Restoration

If you can take the doors out one at a time would be a good start. If you lift the door straight up and pull the bottom aft it may clear the bottom rail, if it does not clear the bottom rail you will need to recess the rollers up into the door. My 90 may be different than your 85 but take a look at ...

Re: Glass Sliding Door Restoration

The parts for the siding glass doors did not come easy after all. The home centers and hardware stores did not carry the parts I needed. The doors are in fact a residential type fabrication, nothing marine about them, just 27 years old making the parts hard to locate but not obsolete. I did find and...

Re: Rudder Linkage 101

The turnbuckle threads can be lubricated with a never-seize compound, just stay away from the copper based ones. The jaws and clevis pins can be lubricated with a water proof marine grade grease out of the can. The best way to accomplish this is to take it all apart, clean everything then reassemble...

Re: Glass Sliding Door Restoration

This morning I removed the two sidelight windows, each screwed in around their perimeter with pan head screws. The frames also had a 3/4" wide black double sided adhesive tape around the perimeter which at first seemed as if it wasn't going to budge, I had to use a sharp putty knife tapping it ...

Re: Overhead 12 Volt DC Accessory Panel Restoration

What are the thick pair of black wires for? Do you also have red/white wires and if so where do they go? The two 12 gauge black wires (the thick pair of black wires) are connected to the "LINE" side of the Bilge Pump circuit breakers in my overhead 12 volt DC accessory panel, these two th...
