   Geez, she got a fair sparkle on her skin now. The windows in the doors look new. Are they new or cleaned up ?

..everything on this narrow is new or reworked...the doors are new skins the glass is all new...front to back she has been gone through...
.....the rally was awesome as usual I counted 25 bombardiers...the going was tough slugging as the snow was deep and sugar type....couple of people had machine trouble unfortunately...one had a broken track the other a blown frost plug...

  If you can find a set for sale let me know as 57 Rebuild needs a set soon. I would also buy a set for myself.

There is always the chance a marine window manufacturer could custom build them. For a price of course. Thanks for that info, D.O.
