Isn't anybody thinking of putting in some RV windows, or are you trying to maintain the look of the school bus?

for me personally I want my bus to be a bus... for others it may be the skill required to take out windows, then cut into the side frame to enlargen the opening. rework the frame members andplace a window.. that can be a daunting task if not familiar with complete custom metal work, cutting, sizing, welding, etc..

Perhaps some replacement windows that fit the openings for a bus that old? They'd seal better. Personally I'd like some safety glass in a rig that old.

Jake Von Slatt has a good video on Youtube about taking windows apart and putting them back together. His emphasis is on what's needed to "turn it upside down" so that the lower panel is the inner one and the one that slides, but lots of good detail on how they come apart and go back together and where to put the grease.
