Shot in the dark - bus door

Going to take a chance and post this here. Perhaps people can offer some advice on a feel-good basis for helping out a non-profit

We have a bus that had an incident with a flying turkey. Yes, a turkey... of the frozen variety.

Apparently the driver didn't realize it was loose and it rolled down the center aisle. When she took the turn, the turkey went out the door. Unfortunately, the turkey didn't have the courtesy of opening the door first and shattered the glass on its way out.

We're now trying to replace to door since there are no body shops in our rural location that can do this.

I figured a school bus conversion community might know something about replacing the glass portion of these bi-fold doors since Starcraft and all of its associated groups and sites seem useless on the subject.

I can provide pics and more details if anyone needs them.

Thanks!!

Check the windshield/glass shops. They should be able to cut a window to fit.

This.

I can't imagine the door itself is damaged unless you shot it out of a cannon.

Me either, unless someone put some regular glass in the door as a cheap replacement in the past. I can't imagine getting a turkey to go though the door glass on my bus. I know it would take numerous attempts without a turkey cannon.

The very NERVE of that bird! I mean, really! Het Kulturny!

Why not just blank off the lower sections of the doors and be done with it? Or:

As a nonprofit go to the local auto glass shop and for there help you will it there sign on the side for as long as they support you?
Turkey issues and all?
Free advertisement saying this nonprofit supported by so and so
Ask for magnet signs if there iffy and let them choose if there willing (respectful size to your group of course)
I do Boy Scouts so asking for help with something to support the community is tough but it has to come from the community for everyone to see the difference that your action or effort is making.
If your not supported by your community then all is out of pocket and

^THIS.

The place I work got their 1.5ton delivery truck for $1.
(YES, ONE CANADIAN DOLLAR)
The auto shops name is on both passenger doors in fairly small print and that's it, because they are good to us we take the truck back to them for all repairs.
