    Default Replacing flyscreen/mosquito gauze on windows - Xplorer

    Hi All
    The mosquito gauze/flyscreen on my 2005 Xplorer's windows are now more patches than gauze so it is time to replace. The existing gauze is glued on. I am just looking for some suggestions on the best glue to use and would also appreciate any advice regarding the process of replacing the gauze. What I have in mind is stretching the new gauze fairly tightly on a flat surface then applying the glue to the aluminium frame and placing it face down on the stretched gauze and placing some weights on it. Once the glue is dry I will then trim the gauze around the frame. Would appreciate any suggestions.

    The strongest glue would be a two part epoxy.

    A friend bought new netting from a place here in Edenvale and replaced all the netting sections on the upper canvas. I'll ask him to respond on this thread as he is a member.

    Good evening, all.

    Yes after trying to chase a mozzy and then ripping the upper mozzy net, I started with temp repairs. That only lasted till I spent the first night in the Van.
    The next morning I was rudely woken up at 0520 with the bright sun light on the upper canvas.

    I decided to do a major mod. I removed to upper canvas.... was a job and a half.

    I then added thicker canvas on the outside all around and replaced all the fly screens.

    Now you can sleep later with ease and the screens are tough.
