Stained Glass Front Door Panel - Installation

Last night's rain delayed our plans, but tonight we were able to install the replacement stained glass panel to the side of the front door.  First, Eric removed the piece of wood that the homeowner added for security.  I held the panel in place as Eric added two screws in front of it to secure it, then he taped the border and added glazing putting around the entire panel.  (Click on any photo to enlarge).

The glazing putty will take a day or so to set up, then it can be painted the same green as the rest of the exterior window frame.

(Left) Here's the exterior view of the panel with the putty in place and the blue painters' tape removed.

We are very happy with the color and texture match for the antique green glass.  The glue chip glass will give the homeowners privacy and the new panel should easily last another 90 years.
The entryway, restored as new!
