Wondering what kind of glass to use for replacing all windows in 1958 Traveller

Hi - wondering if anyone knows what kind of glass to fit in the windows of my 1958 Traveller?

All the frames are in terrific condition, but all windows were broken. I have ordered all the necessary beads and seals and am going to get the glass cut later tomorrow.

Also has anyone seen or fitted glass with a mirror film? We are making this airstream into a little portable bar....and are thinking about having all the windows super reflective mirrors!\

Pic enclosed is before we started any work on this We have now done the demo and are fitting a new floor this weekend

Saw this source:

Surprisingly, I have seen no Airstreams with mirror windows. It seems like such a natural, what with the polished aluminum look and all. I am going for the same look on my '60 Safari. All windows were not broken out, but were poorly replaced with crummy plexi-glass (or acrylic?). Good luck on bringing about a rolling wet-bar.
Stop by for a drink! (D)

Thanks Dan...

...for your reply

I have written to the company you mentioned asking for details...

We're on to the floor this weekend then the window glazing and a new roof vent, then we should be water tight...with a bit of luck

We are going to polish the inside and the outside of this little trailer and then make the inside a "portable party pod" <grin> - in my head I want it to be like an Austin Powers groovy pad, shag carpet, bean bags and a big 70s style hi fi system...

In reality, I expect it will be like a fitted booth in a very cool LA style bar with seats around the walls and a fitted oval table in the middle as you look in left from the door and a bar with a fridge and little bar sink and closet space on the right side overlooking the hitch tongue.

We have a wonderful 345LE coach and will tow this as the "doesnt matter if the kids get it too muddy" room..

I have put the mirror tinting on my rear window because I have a rear bath, it has worked out well and I think it enhances the appearance
