Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - magnets installed

Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Morning 59 Degrees, Wind E 5 Mph, Humidity 82%, partly sunny, going mostly cloudy.
Afternoon 73 Degrees high for today, Wind ESE 8 & gusting to 15 Mph, Humidity 69%, mostly cloudy.
I was up a little late for me at six o’clock and Bonnie was looking for a days sleep. She did get up early, for her as she was interested in some retail therapy. The day started off with a nice sunrise and went down from there, clouded up quickly after the, sunrise picture.

The sunshade panels were “trimmed” for the inside installation, height and radius. The windshield is “laid back” at the top so the bottom wants to lay against the windshield in this application, that is good. When installed inside the intended application the panels would not lay against the windshield at the bottom.

Yesterday I was able to complete magnet installation in both panels top hem and closed the ends with staples. I hung them in place with tape (temporary) and put the magnet inside at the outside edge first temporary allowing it to stick (magnetize) to the windshield. I did the easy side first, right side as there is no steering wheel to deal with. Adjusting the tape and adding magnets to the inside. Just bringing the magnet close to the glass it wants to attract to the magnet out side in the hem of the panel and there is no problem with polarity, (repelling from each other) as the one in my hand would flip as needed to cling to the glass.

Magnets in place
Now I taped a magnet to the lower right corner with the double-sided tape and just placed a magnet outside and repeated this for the middle. On top I removed one magnet at a time noting which side was on the glass and applied the double-sided tape to that surface. Removing the red film and sticking the magnet back to the windshield repeating this four times. This morning I completed the inside for the left shade panel around the steering wheel.
