If you look closely, you can see the lead deterioration in this sample. It is being held together by tape, front and back.
TOMORROW (weather permitting): The frame comes out! That, too, was discovered to be in much worse shape than expected and literally crumbled in some places as they were working over the last two days. Once the frame is out, the long crack along that wall as well as other spalling in the concrete will be repaired. A new aluminum frame (The nave window frames are all aluminum.) is being made on the mainland and will soon be on its way to Hawaii! In the meantime, Annalee Jones is busy working on the new window!!
