Also in the last picture you will see a hinge portion from another salvaged window. It was broken in half and only the above was useable
Can I graft the good hinge portion to the older frame?
I know aluminum is not responsive to major metal movement, no memory like steel.
Other than plexi, gaskets and screen, it seems useable.

Graft away. The large front window has the hinge in pieces so it will work on a small one.

I've actually made some of those hinges but they are a total pain to get to work.
