If You Have To Duct Tape Your Window – Do It With Style [PHOTOS]

About a year and a half ago, my driver’s side window came half way off the track.  For a while, I had been able to guide it and keep it in check.  Since then, it has completely detached itself from the car itself.  Doing what any good redneck would do, I turned to duct tape.  Yup… I’m one of those guys!

Not once, or twice, but thrice I had to re-tape it because the window is so heavy, the five or six strips of tape I had used in my previous attempts eventually weakened and failed.

Yesterday, I decided to go all out and tape it shut for the last time.   Here is the official Jeremy Fenech ‘how-to’ guide for taping a car window shut… with style.

I got two rolls of colored duct tape, black and white, to match my car. I placed several strips of white tape over the very top portion of the window, over the top of the door, and back to the other side of the window.

Then I used the black tape along the top of the window to hide and reinforce the white tape.

Next, I used more black tape over the seal at the top of the window. This was more for cosmetic purposes than anything else.

And there you have it! Obviously, you can see the tape at close range…

…but from a distance, you really can’t tell!

Instead of a $200 repair bill, I spent less than $10 on duct tape. It truly is magical stuff!
