    Betcha that color is going to "pop" out like a sore thumb when cleaned up. Definitely needs shades for this one.  8) 8) 8)

    I checked on the internet & found a place down south in California that said they can make. Only problem is they told me they were $750.00.... EACH !!!!!   Kinda rich for my blood. When I get my camera batteries recharged, I'll snap a couple of pics of something that might just work. Mike's 57 Rebuild first thought of the idea & it looks pretty good.

    Of course it's from a truck.... What did you expect from a bunch of ol' truckers  ;D 8)

  Here is the window I am talking about. It's a little wider so he had it cut & he says it's good to go. It is a little lower than the other one also & it slides. Don't worry OT's got his eye out for this one. The other side was busted up.  The driver was OK.                                             OT.

   sav_69 what do you think about the idea of using this window in your doors ?? I am waiting to get a pic of Mike's finished frames. He says they look good.

  Yea, I think the rear one slides ahead.. I have seen a few different ones on different trucks that might work with a few adjustments. This one is on an International.

To give you another alternative I just had new door windows made for my 1959 Bombardier from a company called Peninsula Glass Company. The cost was $187.00 a window plus shippind and hanleingThey are very close to the original. I had mine made slightly smaller than original so there was some wiggle room when installing. Not too sure how to post pictures on this site, so if your interested in seeing the windows email me at long@mailme.ca and I will forward pictures.

   Wantabe... I just emailed you. I would be glad to post your pics. I have seen their ad on the internet before. I never called to see what they can do but if they can make something that's suitable to our needs & for the price your talking about, I'm interested.

  AND HERE THEY ARE !!!

   Here's his email.

Enclosed is a couple pictures of the windows, the picture of two windows show the new window on the left and an original Bombardier window on the right. The other picture is of the window sitting in the door, not installed yet as you see I haven't had a chance to paint the reskinned doors. The gentleman I dealt with is Jeff Kemp. Included his email address. jeff@motionwindows.com. If you need any more info let me know.

  Is that company in the states ? They look pretty good. I found a wholesale supplier that makes windows like this. He sent me a form to fill out for the sizing & radius. See what happens.

In the picture second from the bottom you can see the handle attached to the front section, so they'll open from the front back.  Those windows are a great find.  Exactly what's needed.
