    Installed Screen build ,

    Pictures to follow...

    Ok screen is installed , a crack is currently on the joint so tht needs 2 be sorted .

    to stick the screen to the build i used some doublesided black sealent which they use for stain glass windows to stick em inside . really strong stuff and tht screen was in tight even before the stuff , so it aint going n e where ... it does need a little tidy up ...
