HELP!! Double to single pane wing window conversation

I have a 1973 ambassador and I need some help. I'm converting my double pane windows to single pane. I have come across numerous threads talking about the conversion, but I can't find the gasket that I'm supposed to put behind the front window when I remove the back pane. Can someone help me out with a link or tell me where I can buy it or what size it needs to be? Thanks!!

I have a '76 Exella 500 with the pealing and waterlogged windows. I researched this as well and have come to the conclusion that there is not a specific gasket seal made for this conversion. I have found a few discussions to rebuild as double pane. I found used windows off a later model which were in good shape to replace mine. I rebuilt the stack windows as double pane with new glass and plexi.

I found a place online called vintagetrailergaskets.com. They seem to have everything we need to do this (I will be doing the conversion this winter). I hope this helps!

That is great. Thanks for the info. Since you can now find the correct gaskets to rebuild, I think the way to go is to just rebuild the double panes (less inner tint) and tint the inside if you want.

Converting 1969 to 1980 Dual Pane Windows to Single Pane Windows

I just posted the chart on how to convert from a dual pane wing window to a single pane wing window in my Vintage Window Library at vintagetrailergaskets.com. You can get to the library by going to my web site and selecting the tab at the top of the page titled 'Vintage Window Library'. Following are the library sections for converting the other windows from dual pane to single pane:
Awning Windows: Sections 2.2.1.2, 2.1.1.4, 2.2.1.5, and 2.2.1.8
Stack Windows: Sections 2.2.2.2 and 2.2.2.3 with 3 options
Vista Windows: Sections 2.2.3.2, 2.2.3.3, 2.2.3.4, and 2.2.3.5
Wing Windows: sections 2.2.4.2, 2.2.4.3 Option 2, and 2.2.4.4 Option 2
Flat Front/back Windows: In work. Will post sections in one week.

Hope that helps.
Robert
