Installing New Front Window

I have begun the process to rehab this trailer. When I bought it it had no front window other than bits and pieces of broken glass in the window frame. The bits and pieces of broken glass served as a template for the new glass. I had tempered glass replaced in the original frame .125 in thick with butyl glazing tape and weather stripping the Hehr Hall-Mark 12 Glazing Strip from VTS. It looked alot better installed than did the 6mil poly plastic I had taped in place. One of the arms of my rock guard is missing the extension arm, does anyone have any ideas where to get a replacement? The rock guard seems to be a whole other animal. I need some details on it, I'll try and post some pictures.
Thanks

Original Lifters for Hehr Vents and Astrodome frozen

I'm currently trying to replace the vent cover for the rear vent and the astrodome. The Ladue lifters are currently stuck. I have soaked them in WD 40 for 3-4 days with no success. Does anyone have any other ideas? Does anyone know of a source to replace the original Ladue lifters? I'm trying to stay with the original parts if possible.
Thanks
