    Hi.
    I'm going to fit dummy windows but unsure whether to leave a gap in the sealant or drill a hole in the panel to prevent condensation.
    Any advice would be welcome.

    Hi @Dino , I think that I would leave a series of gaps along the bottom rather than drilling any holes, well done in the thought process :thumbsdown::thumbsup: The poll begins :thumbsup:

    My only worry about gaps on the bottom is that the spider that lives in the wing mirror may decide to move.

    Next conundrum, if going for the hole option what size should it be.

    Could you fit some sort of gauze/mesh?

    On the plus side, Boris the spider would keep other bugs under control :whistle:

    What's wrong with the spider, he has to live somewhere :oops:

    Hi Dino
    Spray the back of the dummy window as well mate or when the sun catches it at different angles you will see through it so any untidy primer lines etc would be seen, i always just leave a small gap at the bottom for displacement of air when bonding the window on few inches
