I have the Ryobi version, a lot cheaper than the Dewalt.
You obviously remember my penchant for power tools! You are such a teaser!
I will go for the best stuff money can buy for glueing the solar down!The cost of one or two tubes of Sika are an extremely small part of the build. I will always use Sika because of it's reputation. Saving a few quid on an alternative is a bigger risk than I am prepared to take.
I will always use sika.
Is this what you are looking for? I used this to seal the doors on my trailer.So because im an idiot i used house windows in my truck. Turns out house windows have drainage holes in the bottom of them to drain any water into the cavities of a brick wall.
I knew this and sealed up the window. Did a cracking job.
Stupid storm Clara or whatever gave it a battering.
Now the gullys for the runners fill with water...

I need like a flanged rubber hose maybe 5mm. Preferably a D shaped flange....I'm hoping i can drill out the front of the frame and drain it out.
Any ideas where i would get such a rubbery flange?
Will maybe a countersunk rivnut do the job ?No ive explained it stupidly.
The gully fills with water because i sealed the drainage holes up so no water leaked into the frame. This is just how house windows work. No water comes into the truck.
I want to drill through the window frame. From the outside, into the gully....
With a 5mm rubber tube going from the gully to outside. Just need a flanged end to put on the gully side..
So im looking for a flanged end for a 5mm tube i guess.
I think that's all i can do, drill into the hollow casement as you say. Hence the rubber tube to bridge the gap. Cant put drain holes in the bottom as the water will collect in the steel framework of the truck.what ever you do, don't drill into the hollow casement of the window, but a carefully positioned 4mm drain hole each end of the track is exactly the same as the windows in most A class cabs. Set the depth of the hole so the bottom is 1-2 mm above the depth inside the track. Probably no need to line the hole with a rubber tube
Thats exactly what i want to do, just want an end to put on the tube, gully side, to get a better seal.How about drilling a hole either side of the outer frame and bonding a small plastic tube in the gap.
with a window sliding back and forth, the seal will eventually leak no matter how well you try and seal itI think that's all i can do, drill into the hollow casement as you say. Hence the rubber tube to bridge the gap. Cant put drain holes in the bottom as the water will collect in the steel framework of the truck.
Design fault on my behalf.
