Continuing this thread...

I just placed an order with Peninsula Glass in Vancouver, WA for two replacement front door windows (in solex tint, 3/16", tempered with mark, pencil edge) and two van side windows (in gray 45% tint, 3/16", tempered with mark, pencil edge, 2.25" radius). Total price was less than $300 shipped to my door.

I cut the dimensions of the van side windows to 43" wide by 15 3/4" high. The intent is to cut an aperture with 6mm allowance and use two-piece weatherstripping to hold the glass in as done on the quarterlights and fiberglass top.

Very good price. You will spend a bunch on the weatherstrip. As an FYI, the fiberglass top windows are the same size as the sliding windows. I have one window sitting here if anyone is in need.

Based on your "analytical view points" I assume you are some sort of engineer. Call trim lok in California and tell them you want to order a small "sample". They will sell it to you, just push it as R&D.

I am not sure what that means exactly. My entire family are engineers or engineering types (math, computers etc.), except me.

I was merely referencing the fact that rover window weatherstripping is spendy. I had to buy some for my dormobile top.

I meant to direct that to the Original Poster. But lawyers are analytical also (married to one).

Have you seen these? They are the same specs as the NAS SW windows with factory tint. They even have a template if you are converting a hardtop to a SW.

When she was a senior in Undergrad, she brought a book home called "how to win Every argument". I gave up soon after she read that.

Yes, you guessed right, I am a EE/CS person sorry for my nerdy viewpoints!

Thanks for the tip about trimlok samples!

Don't forget that there are different van sides. Yours are probably the earlier type with the vertical support in them. Later ones had horizontal supports which are easier to install windows into. Just more work required on the older ones.
