'73 Overlander front curved window replacement

I never noticed this until my wife pointed it out to me that the front curved windows (24" x 13" give are take an inch are) is missing a one of the outside glass panes. I really do not want to drill all the rivets. Can I use a Poly product like lexan? Can I bend it to slide into the channel. The inner window is fine so I am good with that glass. I have searched the window forums and have read about people using Lexan for different widnow applications. It would not have to bend that much to fit. It is just a small curve. Any advice?

I removed a Lexan window from my single pane and had to remove the whole frame to replace, because the frame had to be taken apart. I used a Doner pane from a double pane and the frame had to be taken apart to salvage the pane I needed. I put a 77 pane into my 71.

I was looking again and I noticed the bottom of the corner window is wider then the top. Is there another product that will work as well as lexan that I can bend and fit into the channel of the window? Has anybody ever done this before?

I figured it out. I do not have to take out the rivets and pull the window. There is a aluminum strip on the side of the wrap window that is held together by 4 screws. I take those screws out and the strip comes off. I will be able to slide my window in after I purchase some lexan and cut it.
