First thing again was to set up the tiles in the jig to straighten them out. So I did that and left them in a few days. Still, it helps but isn’t really a solution.
This chapter has me cutting and mounting tiles on the curved edges of the front left and back left eaves. So it was pretty slow going. I had lots of left over little bits and bobs from previous tiling so it was just a matter of matching up, trimming and sanding the pieces down, heating them, bending them and gluing in place. Things went well for the front two areas to tile and I finished that fairly quickly without much pain or frustration (breakage or badly matching waves on the tiles).
|Clamping tiles in place....waiting for glue to dry.|
|Finished front roof. You can just see the split tile on the second row far right.|
|Top right is where I cut the tile to match the wave detail better.|
|Another split at the top right edge. I'll live with it.|
|Finished back roof tiling.|
|Ebola mask on the left, crappy mask on the right.|
And last but not least....the next chapter WILL NOT HAVE TILING! Oh joy and rapture!!!
