Window in a Listed Building,5 - First panel down

I know it is independence day in the USofA, but the rest of us work on. It doesn't seem such a big deal out side the borders of the USofA.

This shows the first panel down from the top of the listed window with the leads removed. It has been cleaned and the badly broken panes removed from the stock of glass to be re-leaded.

This image shows the pieces from the panel that are being prepared for gluing. I use Araldite 20/20 as it is a strong two part resin that does not yellow and is impervious to moisture. The cracks do show as a fine line, but the glue will not deteriorate in the light and moisture.
