Repairing Front window '63 Safari

Well I have the front wondow out and I was wondering is that just vulcum sealing the window, or was it some sort of weatherstripping? Also It looks like my rock guard was move up for some reason or another. Is it supposed to partly cover up the airstream Logo above the window? Was this a option on this model that was possible installed later? because it was on with large screws. Thanks for any info.

My '67 Safari definitely has a weatherstripping,as do all the windows.You can get it from Andy at InlandRV.com/parts by the foot.The rockshield on mine did not cover the nameplaque.

Ours doesn't cover the Airstream plaque either

Sounds like the rock gaurd may have been added or moved. One reason it could have been moved is to clear a spare tire or large tanks on the tongue...who knows

Just curious, are there "old holes" below the current ones?

Your front window had grey weatherstripping, also known as a "window glazing bead." Airstream Dreams sells a replacement, using the original manufacturer's die and the same material. They even have a diagram of the original window assembly at their website:
www.airstreamdreams.com
Look under "Gaskets," and the year of your trailer.

I agree that the rockguard was probably moved--very unlikely that Airstream would have let it out of the factory with a covered up nameplate.

Don't use vulcem!

Fire off an email to Steve at Airstreamdreams.com and let him know you need it ASAP. I had him 2nd day air sme stuff to me when I was redoing a 65 Safari, including reglazing ALL the windows. 1 had been siliconed and it was a B*&%H to get it all out so the glazing bead would fit. Also get a tube of par bond to seal the corners after install. It is grey and finishes it like the factory did. Your first window will take just under an hour your last one will take 15 min.

Thanks for The info new kidd, really appreciate it. Any idea on my rock guard question? I am trying to find out where the original location was. In the same rivet holes that hold on the window/ drip edge? Anyone know where it is supposed to be mounted?

Here's a picture of ours...it is right next to the sign, but doesn't cover it.

It's starting to rain...so I can't take any more pix today...I'll try to open up the rockguard & get more later...

Mine looked just like that before someone put a hole in it and I retired it.The holes were almost in line with the rivit line but about 3/32" to 1/8 " up.
