Morning all,

Busy morning for me. The Judge is coming over and we have lots of stuff to discuss. I'm sure you'll read all about it in the Saturday Report.

Ebay is changing it's policy again and making it even more buyer friendly as well as increasing their fees. I have hundreds of items of Jim Miller's to sell for Claire. It looks like I'll be one of the hundreds if not thousands of folks closing the Ebay account on October 15, 2020. Lots of YouTube videos on the new Managed Payments System Ebay is going to. Again, great capitalism but mostly great corporate greed! Ebay will be going to send IRS 1099 forms if you sell over $20,000 each year. I've never sold that much but they have already asked me for my SS# and DOB. Not going to happen.

Be safe out there ya'll.

Tom

I then used a "white wash" of Floquil Reefer White to cover the walls. I thinned the white to 40 parts white and 60 parts/% thinner. Once the first coat was applied and dry (not cured), a second (final) coat was applied and allowed to dry and cure.

The finished walls aren't as white as they appear in the photo.





Adding the stained glass tomorrow.

The walls have the laser burn on the inside of the windows. This doesn't take staining to well so I used  full Strength Floquil Reefer White to lightly coat the area.



Using a light coat of paint allowed me to keep the window paint looking faded.



More in a few.

I then glued the doors on flush to the scrap piece.



I then added the door frame.

The church entrance has a solid double door, no windows.



I followed the same procedure as the church windows for installing the doors. I decided to glue a small scrap piece of wood to the rear/interior wall around the door opening.

Great solution to the light leak problem.   8)  I'll have to keep that in mind if this one ends up in my stash.   ;)


Bob,

Much appreciate the compliment my friend. It was an easy fix.

Windows look awesome, and I really appreciate the detailed tips you are writing to go along with the pictures.

Steven,

Thank you, much appreciated. I try to explain all I do in a build and I'm glad you are learning from the build.

Outstanding Tom. I actually liked the look of the wood covering the window like it's broken.

Curt,

Thank you, I like the boarded up look also.
