Edit - Spell check mangled the title. Meant "Hehr windows"
I posted last night to my blog that I finally got 2 working windows rebuilt. Woke up this morning and one is now cracked. Blog entry posted below. That mans 3 cracked windows out of 4 rebuilds. Not sure what I am doing wrong at this point. All of the stress cracks are in different locations so I am assuming the frame/seals are putting the window under too much stress. I have tried glass at the original exact size, slightly smaller and with a beveled edge to fit "looser" in the frames.

Does anyone have a link to someone rebuilding these one piece frame type windows? I was unable to find any searching both window forums and trailer model forums. At this point, I am considering using Lexan. The seals will still be tight with the movement and I won't have to worry after every bump that a window may have cracked.
Thanks for any help on this.
