Re: Turning a window upsidedown

If you are in fact doing it so the dog can hang it's head out, it's a bad idea to ever let this happen. A bug in the eye can be anything from an annoyance to the loss of an eye.

Re: Turning a window upsidedown

I guess if the dog you speak of lives in Cailf. and its ridding in your bus and gets a bug in its eye because you did not provide protective equipment to before mentioned animal you sir would be in a pile of trouble. I'm sure you would suffer the total weight of the law that the goverment of the state officals of Cailf.. But don't try turning your window upside down, it wont stop rain from comming in were the two panes meet and rain will inter the wall of the bus, making a large leak. And may be a violation of the law somewhere in this country called Amerika comrad.

Re: Turning a window upsidedown

That would be me.

But this was a shortie with a fiberglass body-and sliders for windows.

It was easy peasey. I started out looking at it debating how tough the job was gonna be and just planned an exploitory putzing -unscrewed the 20+ screws-told the wife "put your hand on the window here + hold it in while I poke around-pushed it out + turned it over. Poof-right in place. "Hold it 10 more seconds while i go get the silicone." Laid a bead + set it in place. Hold the trim piece up inside (mAKE SURE YOU PUT IT THE SAME WAY IT WAS ON THE WINDOW BEFORE-OR THE RANDOMLY DRILLED HOLES WONT LINE UP!) I bet it didn't take 20 minutes.
Afterwards, you need to do a little drain re-routing. Silicone up the original holes, drill a couple holes in the rubber on the bottom.
Don't make a fuss-just get on the bus!
