Picture didnt upload on my first try.

Getting close. Thinking about windshields in the spring. Ill be paying out of pocket (ouch) so if anyone has anything to say about the gap in this picture please do. I didn't think a gasket could shrink that much. Maybe the current window was the wrong size. Any ideas?

I have a 220 I'm rebuilding and it is the same, it is because the seal has shrunk.

Are your windshields broken?

Hi.... Cant see any pictures of your situation... but there reportedly are TWO
different size windshields, one taller than the other. Me thinks ihey go from 1973
back as one size and 1974 and later for the other size. I no longer have my spare
set of 1976 windshields, so dimensions are lacking here. FWIW...

Any thought of going to a flat glass conversion?

After starting with a call to Foretravel, then to Guardian, then to rvglass experts I eventually ended up speaking with a sales woman with coach re the replacement glass. Seems that 1973 and up will be different than pre 73 glass. She has also shown me a profile of the gasket m29. Has the keyed lock strip and measures 1.45 inch high and 91" thick. Quote doesnt seem too bad. About 1400 with the crate and ship. Now Im just wondering if I should go with the m29 or the gasket that foretravel sells
