Question Windows

Hi All,
Does anyone have experience with the seal between the panes of glass
on the windows drooping? I have two windows that have this problem.
It's just unsightly on our 82. Does the only way to fix it include re-riveting?
Also, are there any suggestions for repairing damaged plastic around the
overhead window?
Thanks for your help.

You are not alone with this problem, you can find a lot of information on the over head windows if you search the threads for "Vista View" (use the search tool at the top of the page). As for the larger windows, I haven't found anything on repairs to them. It looks as if the rivets would have to be drilled out - separate the frame - repace the seals if they are available.
