i've bought windows on two different occasions and all i've recieved is the window itself and the inner trim ring, no screws of any kind. the walls were too thin on my first build so i didn't use the trim ring, i drilled and screwed through the exterior flange. i'm just getting ready to instal windows in my new build so i will be using the trim rings and self tapping screws from the inside...

Ordered steel for the window frames today. Is it recommended to box the whole window size in or just the top and bottom?

You need to support all sides that would be squeezed
by your trim ring screws. Otherwise you will leave
creases that leak............

Copy that. I’ll run horizontal braces to support the studs I cut. Than weld in vertical studs to hold the window. Thank yo u

The reverse light works pretty well considering the power source Image
