If I were to find one thats bigger do you think I could i successfully cut it down to size? have access to welder. Or, if i find one thats smaller, could i decrease the size of the opening somehow. Your input is much appreciated.
gottatrotter, Have you looked at the ad by [camper] (a member on the forums) in the classified section? He is selling windows from a '64 trailer and may have the one you need. On page 2 ad #3 if you want to look. You can log in by using your forums name and password and then click on the contact seller tab and leave them a message as to what you need. Also ask if it is okay to call them and they might send you a phone number so you can chat as to other windows or parts you may need. Hope this helps. Ed

Also need extrusion - '67 rear window

Why should I seek when none exist? Our '67 Safari rear window has the top part of the aluminum bar and frame in place but a PO removed the bar attached to the glass and used sealant and screws to fix a piece of acrylic in its place. Of course the acrylic has cracks and leaks and will not open for ventilation. Does anyone have a junker '66, '67 or '68 from which a front or rear window bar could be salvaged? If I hear no other, sounds like polycarbonate, rivets & sealant is one path forward.
Onward thru the fog.
Jim

We may have one, but I can't tell your for sure until I return to my office, next week.

Mahalo,
