While trying to come up with an Eagle design for the rear cap, I came across this one. We wanted something unusual but appealing. We both agreed on it! ;)

We will probably start out with dark blue on the bottom graduating to silver blue at the top.

Julio, I like the traditional too, just haven't found one I like. This one will not be as noticeable as the one pictured, more of a ghost type appearance.

I installed the first of four double pane insulated windows today in the bedroom. I was real nervous as dark clouds started to appear, but I made it! We are very happy with the result. I still need to trim the caulk, will do that later.

The width was a perfect fit, the height of the rough opening was about 3/4" taller than the window. I used some pressure treated material to fill the gap. I installed a strip of butyl caulk tape on the window first before installation.

Here is what I do.

Download the pictures from camera to the computer, re size what I want to post in our PhotoBucket site to 50%. Download pictures to PhotoBucket, hover mouse over picture, right click on IMG Code, copy code. In the post where you want to insert your photo, right click then paste. That's all there is too it. :)

Wayne,

I can't wait to see it too! Because that would mean the outside is painted like I want it! :lol:

I just don't want anything too gaudy, subtle is more what I'm shooting for. If you have ever seen ghost flames, that is the look, or close to it, I think would look best with that type of mural.

:? :? :? :!:

I mean a thread series named "HOW TO - xxx..." and this could be the first one:

"HOW TO - Change a window in an already converted coach" or something like and include instructions, drawings, pictures. Maybe could be done in some way like PDF downloadable documents.

I know that this could some additional work to do but if I can help with something let me know if you have interest.
