Adding a top mounted Window and Fan

Method continued...

Step 3

Now it's time for the rubber gasket installation.

Start by pushing the moulding around the the metal of your panel window, and continue working your way around the entire window until it's done. Next you can peel off the protective paper that is on your plexi glass.

It's a good idea to just peel back only 2 inches or so from the edges. This prevents the plexi glass from being scratched during the rest of the installation process. The moulding should be a little long, just trim off the extra molding with a knife until the length is just the right size.

Work your way around the hole, pushing the window into its groove. Use some masking tape to hold the gasket firmly in place to ensure a tight fit.

Fitting the rubber surround

The tighter you can get the rubber moulding back, the easier the process of installing the window will be.
