'66 glass for a '67 Safari
I salvaged a number of original corning glass panes from a 66 for my 67 Safari. I noticed on my large gaucho window that the top bar/frame that holds the glass is different on the two trailers, though the glass itself is the same. The 66 has a one-piece top bar; meaning the lower half of the hinge element is one piece of extruded aluminum. On the 67 the top bar is made of two extrusions held together with screws. The 67 arrangement is nice as it allows me to pull a window off of the frame very easily ( I don't have to slide the whole window down the length of the window frame, I can just drop it straight down).
The bind currently, is that I have the one piece top bar with glass glued in place that I would like to put on my 67. To do this I have to be able to slide the old window top bar lengthwise off of the upper part of the hinge. The window Jambs don't afford enough room to do this easily.
The other option would be to swap glass panes and leave the top bars with their associated trailers. I have no idea how to release the glass from its glue slathered home.
Does my dilemma make sense to anyone? Any suggestions? Does anyone need a dinette road-side window for their 66 Safari?
