White nylon window guides

Is there anywhere to purchase the white nylon window guides--I need several to replace cracked and broken ones. The only kind I can find nowadays are the black. I don't need to replace all of them just to get them all to be matching in black.

The white window position guides was the very first guide available.

In short order, it turned out be a very bad part, in that they crumbled in a few months.

Airstream then updated that part very quickly and had them made in black, as I recall over 40 years ago.

Black is the only color available.

But, I guess you could paint them what ever color you wish to have.

White window guides have been discontinued, and have been unavailable for many years. If you want replacements, you will have to use the black guides.

I also found the rivet spacing on the black is different then on the white ones I removed. As I had already drilled out the original holes to a #10 and installed nutplates, I had to make a drill jig that referenced the center hole and then drilled out the offsets to match the spacing of the white ones. I now keep a couple of re-drilled spares in my fly away kit that I can change with just a screwdriver.
