AS Overlander 1969 Broken Wing Window
Hi Air Forum
On our last trip a window broke on our 1969 Overlander :-(
Front Wing Window (right side (curbside))
i can buy a new Window(plastic) with frame in the US for 500 $ + shipping + Tax (i live in Denmark (EU)) total cost 900 $
pretty exspensive and "hard" to install. the new frame is bigger, so i have cut in Airstream to fit it !!
so i will rather look for a local shop that can work with lexan.
Can i change the glass/lexan without taken the frame off ?
from the inside maybe ?
or do i have drill all riverts out ?
if i have drill all riverts out, how do i install it again ?
i have tools to "normal" riverts, but how do you install riverts on an airstream ?
are they called olympic riverts ?
is't ok to use lexan instead og tempered glass ?
the glass is marked with:
AS 2 SOLID
which type of lexan should i use and what about the thikness ?
Now i found out the (hard way) why many have AS have a rockguard in front, i thought it only was due to the Sun...
i think i need a rockguard.
i hope someone will share they knowledge, Airstreams are a bit rare in the EU, so its hard to find repair shops and help.
