Smile Windows

I have a 1965 Overlander 26 Ft. I would like information on window repairs:
1. When repairing windows, what and where do I find the 'outside' plastic window molding that keeps the glass in place?

2. How do I replace the gears that open/close the windows. I have several windows that do not open beacause the gears are 'slipping'?

Thank- you,
Jackie

Try a glass shop for the molding. I got the beading for my window guards that way.

If I am not mistaking those old window cranks are the same ones used on the Jalousy windows that were popular in the same period. Again a glass shop

Thanks. And, and suggestions as to glass replacement. I have read on the forum that lexan (solar grey) is a good choice. Agree?

Lexan is a lot cheaper than tempered glass. If you are working with a curved window glass then lexan is the choise.
