Trade my Tinted Windows for your non-tinted windows

Hi There!

Do you want to exchange your non-tinted glass for tinted?

I have a 1998 bluebird short bus (26'), and it has high quality tinted windows.

Because I am using my bus as an art studio, I need all the natural light I can get and so need untainted windows. Because these are the good kind, I can't just peel the tinting off, and have to replace the glass.

I know a lot of people prefer tinted windows for their conversions, and am just wondering if anyone out there has compatible size windows, and wants to make a swap.

I live on the west coast of Washington state. I think even with shipping the windows, it would be cheaper than buying new glass......

Just throwing it out there....
Cheers!
Hailey

Sizes: The windows slide open from the top in aluminum tracks. Each consists of two halves, the top which slides down, and the bottom which is fixed.

The top half is approx. 25.5" wide x 15 1/4" tall
The bottom is approx 25.5" wide x 14" tall

I've got a '93 29' (54pax) I'm parting out with clear glass.

Would love to get your tinted windows for my '98 that I am currently driving!

It's here in CO, so not sure if that would be practical at all? Shipping might be a killer!

We're planning a trip to CA, but not till 2019 when Star Wars Land opens...

I am in Washington, and I have a handful of schoolbus windows I took out of my bus. Most of them are in "fair condition". I don't want to trade them, but I would love to give them all to you for free. I'll take measurements tonight.

Hi Lemeno,

Yeah, I wonder about what the shipping cost would be.... If we could confirm that we have compatible windows, then we could look into it more in detail...

What are the dimensions of your windows?
