Getting ready for the Get Together

Look what I got into today it wasn't by choice. I was working on the dash when I happened to look at the top of the fixed side window. I could see daylight between the fixed glass and the A pillar. I checked the angled bar that holds things together and the frigging screws were broke, Allowing the fixed window to slip back.

Anyone know where to get the window glazing material

Just what I wanted to do just before the get together

What a mess....makes we wonder what I'll find on my two road tests next Saturday. I stress the heck out of the motorhome on the tests because i would rather have a problem 50 miles from the house than 600. Good to see that you tackled the problem right away! When i first bought the motorhome and had to take the nose off to start the project i was a little worried about getting everything back together correctly. I had one of the guys that work for me help me (moral support)....he said "heck" it's just nuts and bolts, "let's get it done" ! Interesting on your Airstream I always wanted to know where they put the gear selector for the Allison....your pictures answered that question....pretty cool location and plenty of room !

When I first got the coach I tried to fix the same problem on the right side without removing the frame. That resulted in the window exploding when we hit a rough railway crossing in Wisconsin 500 miles from home. Almost giving the wife a heart attack. Not to mention what I had to listen to for the rest of the trip.

Got everything cleaned up and the frame test fitted. Found a piece of gasket from another window. Got it taped to the glass to see how it fits.

It is not quite the same just a tiny bit thicker got it taped to the glass I think I am going to have to thin it down a bit. I think I still will have to use some kind of lube to get it in the frame, Any ideas

That old gasket hardened over time which makes difficult to reuse. I would use new and be done with it.

John,

I'd suggest taking the glass and frame to an automotive glass company and see if they have any suggestions.

I tried glass shops nobody has glazing that thin. And when they find out what it is from they don't want to touch it
The glazing I am using is still pretty plyable the stuff I took out is rock hard .

I would love to use new stuff but I don't have enough time to order something that might not work.
