Sealing window

LFC, Just remember to use Sikaflex or Acryl-R to seal around the window at the end to seal the edges of the window instead of Silicone sealant. The only issue I see is your windows are most likely not screwed in, but if so this looks like the best fix. Ed

Personally, I'd pull it and seal under the gasket, not around it. I think it looks bad. But that's just me. Coincidentally (?????) your tape seems placed just about directly where the segment seam is between the panels. I'd suspect a gap in the rubber seal where it spans the joint.

Creation Windows

LFC --- here is a link to what seems to be left of the Creation window parts just in case you might need something. Page Title

I have/had them in my Bambi and ended up replacing both the front and rear window. The 2 that I replaced had screw holes punched in the frame and water poured in them so I had no choice if I wanted to stop the water. I would suggest that you take off the inside, white, trim ring and screen, then do another leak test so you get a better look. They may be a 2 part installation with an inner piece that screws into the outside part. That is how mine were. Basically an inner clamp ring that pulls the window tight to the skin. That's also how the holes got punched in mine. There is a groove that the screws are supposed to go into and someone didn't pay attention. No way to know that without pulling some screws.....
Agree to touch up the sealant on the body panels to the right and left of the "Airstream" letters. Good luck....
