Lexan can be used, but be prepared for a 'blow out" since it flexes and the glass does not.
The next issue is taking the window frames apart. There is a hidden steel bare internally that holds the 2 window frame (sash) together. Depending on how rusty it may be, separating the 2 halves can be challenging.
The gray gasket is not available, and neither are the 69 hinges. Use extreme caution when riveting the hinge back in place, so that it does not warp.
If you wish to use 1970 windows, the hinges must be taken off the 69 windows and installed on the early 70's windows. The 70's hinges will snap all the rivets if you tried to install them on a 69.
