Is he doing this because of missing or broken windows? I tried googling the Iveco Eurocargo and none of the pictures I saw had windows that would fit his frames.

Looking forward to a full side shot to see how the ascetics change due to the window change.

Excellent metalwork!

Is he putting in wing windows in the front? I feel like those would be much more effective (and easy to deal with) than the sliders

Been speaking to Keith, the owner, this morning. He is another Brit and lives about 100miles from me. He has his own business repairing vintage cars etc. Although he is a member on the forum, he hasn't been on here for a while. But the plan is to go around and see what he is working on after the holidays and hopefully get some more pictures.

Another share from the Argosy Owners FB group....

Keith has the drivers side window in so you can start to see the overall effect.

Yes Brad. His body (and I have just found out he has a 24ft, even though the decals say 26ft - VIN is M24T4V0100, and on the chassis was the number 58 painted indicating it was the 58th motorhome off the line) suffered from Peanut syndrome, ie the curve of the glass did not align with the curve of the frame/body and so leaked causing floor rot even though he had the gap between the floor the outer skin to allow drainage. He tried replacing the fuzzy channel etc but then bit the bullet and went for surgery.

Near Colchester, Nick....more importantly he has his old cockpit windows which appear to have been converted to the 1977 onwards, squeeze and pull latches. I have already asked him if you can have them!

You do realize he lives across the pond, right?

Cheers
