Quick window question...
We have a '74 27' Overlander that's been an on-again, off-again project for the last several years. As seems typical for this era trailer, the film between the panes has gotten unsightly, to say the least, so that's what I'm working on. I got lucky, our windows are the ones with the Plexiglas inner panes in their own frame that slip into the outer frame and are secured by screws. So far, although slow and tedious, things are progressing just fine. So here's my question.
Does the big flat window and the wing windows also have the film? Reason I ask, I just pulled the big flat window, and it looks pristine, I can't tell if it has film or not. Our trailer does have the tinted rock guard, which is down most of the time, of course. Could that be why the film hasn't deteriorated on those front windows, if it's there?
On a related question, that rock guard has done it's job over the years, and it looks it. There's a couple of craters from rock strikes, and the whole thing is badly crazed. Looks like a replacement would run over $500 with shipping, so I'm wondering if anyone has tried just replacing the Plexiglas on one of these. I've already ordered a new gasket, everything else seems to be in good shape, and even though it would be a fairly large piece of Lexan (?), it's gotta be less than $500. Opinions? Thanks!
