New Window

Hi All

I collect the new window for the van on Wednesday, it has taken 3 weeks but at a quarter of the cost of getting one through a dealer it was a no brainer.

After I have collected it I will post a piccy.

Cheers

Dave

I'm very interested to see the detail of how they made it and how it compares with your other windows Dave.

Hi

Well the window is in but still in the garage as her back end needs touching up.

He tells me the window fits if a little tight but once used a few times it will be fine.

There is no xxxxxxxx marking or shadowing on the window that the original had but they did tell me that when I dropped the old window off.

Once I get her back I will post a piccy------ well worth the £800 saving on one from the dealers.

cheers

Dave

Probably missed something but where did you get the window from?

I am going into space in a vehicle made from over 3 million components, each manufactured by the lowst bidder - Neil Armstrong

Very interested in this too as I damaged mine recently.

Details of who did the job (eeco maybe?) and costs would be much appreciated Dave.

Haven't enquired yet but I would imagine a mortgage would be needed for a new one from Hymer. ☹️

Pete.

and it fit perfectly just no criss cross pattern on it.
