olympic rivets

Just got a broken window that I need to repair. It is a fixed glazing type next to the door. Does anyone know the Olympic part number for the rivits and where can I get the glazing bead to hold the 1/8 inch lexan in the frame? I called inland today and they dont have the glazing bead. Thanks Curt

Try this place. They have the Olympic rivets, and lots of different glazing beads. http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/...lts.asp?Cat=26

Curt.

The original glazing bead is not available, except from Airstream, but they will not sell it.

Using an unproven substitute glazing material would more than likely assure you of water leaks.

Additionally, taking the frame apart is easy. Putting the frame back together, including the hinge, results in a flimsy window that will never seal correctly.

We do have the olympics.

Andy, The window in question has no hinge it is a fixed glass window. I talked to your parts lady on Tuesdayand she said that you have the rivets. I plan to order them this week.Is the glazing bead available for the fixed glass window?

We have a glazing bead, but it is not like the original.

It can be used, "IF" your very careful.
