Masai Sliding window replacement

I have an 1984 Land Rover 90. It has metal sides with no sliding windows. Great for putting out a rape vibe... I'm ordering some standard no tint rear sliding windows to put in. Has anyone put in the Masai brand windows? I'm ordering the paper template to help guide me on cutting the holes out. YouTube had a couple videos on installing side windows in a defender. Anything else I should know, or do?

They've got a video on youtube showing the install. I think they look a little too modern for an older defender, in my opinion. I'd rather have more stock looking windows.

Never mind. I see they have stock style windows too. I was talking about the tinted panoramic stuff. might look pretty nice on a newer defender.

Cool sounds good. Looks pretty simple, just didn't know if there was anything extra I should do. Thanks

Don't do it.

I'm going for the utility sides on my next Defender. The side windows are a supreme hassle. They leak and you have to change the felt every so often or they become in un-openable.

I purchased a set of the standard style sliding windows and the template. The template was nice and made things easy worth the $.

How about we just trade sides?

@jafir
I'll be glad to take pics documenting it.

@manimal
Do you have a link to these utility sides?

I'm not super concerned with leaking as I have a bulkhead and only use the back for the dogs, gear, and mistresses...
Rattling will annoy me, but I've been running it with the doors off so theres not a lot of peace and quiet anyway...

Thanks!

I recently imported some of the Masai panoramics and got a rash of crap about them not being dot approved but they were eventually cleared. Don't think I'll try that agin.

Yea I'm not going for the panoramic ones. They might clash with my 28yr old patina... I think anything is better then the aluminum panel/blind spot.

Masai window

I ordered a pair of sliding windows to put into the sides... I'll document the install when they come in.

Imagine the panels that the rear windows are on without holes cut out for windows. That's it. My series 3 had them.

I going to fab up some window guards for the outside of the window as well. I'll post some design plans in case any one here as any interest.

I'm interested and have been thinking about designing a set myself out of aluminum. The Mantec ones seem to rust very easily.

Sounds good I'll try and get some designs up soon. I'm planning on aluminum. I've seen tabs that just have holes for rivets, and some that gripped the gutter. I'm thinking just doing the holes for rivets unless there is some advantage that I'm not thinking of.

So my sliding windows came in.

I ordered some regular sliding windows from masai, and got them in less then a week. I took a couple pics of the install.
