Window T handles for my '79

Is there a place to buy the round pieces that make the handle for the windows that open outward for my 79 Airstream trailer?
A couple of them the screw basically rusted solid and I had to cut the screw to get them off. I am removing windows to replace my gaskets.

Chris

Dog Doc,
When we got our 79' Sovereign, the plastic handles had really yellowed. I found a bag of 50 cabinet handles (Home Depot) for $25. We cut the heads off the bolts and installed 2 handles, one on each side of the bolt; bolt went through the hole in the window opener. It is another option if you break more or want to freshen the yellowed look. Oh and we also have all of the original plastic handles and bolts if anyone is interested. Just send me a PM.

Man that looks nice. Good thought there. It gives it a little modern look to it.
Good job

Great idea! Looks like a good candidate for the Favorite Mod Under $100 thread.

Dog Doc,
I need about four window handles, if you still have them.
Please advise.
Thanks,
Sherry
