|Steam bending unit|
As previously mentioned, the Windshield was cut down to a lower profile. Decide to add wood trim. The wood had to be steamed to bend without cracking. The setup pictured above worked pretty good....here's how it works: take a length of plastic pipe with a diameter that will fit the girth of the wood you need bended. cap the ends with aluminum foil. run vinyl hose to the pipe from the 1 gallon paint cans that you can get at a reputable paint store (empty cans @ approx. $2.50 ea). turn on the electric burners to high after filling the cans about a quarter way to the top and wait for the steam to rise up and saturate the wood for about an hour......take the wood out and - quick like a bunny - bend it to whatever mold or jig or whatever you have and there you go!
