Replacing a windshield like that shouldn't be that expensive. It is all just flat glass after all.

IIRC, the last flat glass windshield I had to replace cost less than $300.00 installed.

It's going to be upwards of $40,000....it's harder than finding a unicorn! Just give me the address and I'll relieve you of your stresses. I won't even bother you, just leave the key under the driver's seat.

My driver's side has a weird delamination circle you can only see from the outside... It almost looks oily, like someone sprayed oil on it.
They quoted me $300 at local glass shop and $49 for rubber seal that's shrunk at the top.

Hey man do you have a good source for gaskets and body parts?
Need to order some stuff for my Senator/Genesis.

For a Senator/Genesis made by AmTrans I would try an IC Bus dealer.

Otherwise I would talk to an auto glass expert and see where they source new soft parts.

I was lucky that the rubber around my windshield was still in good shape. Good enough to reuse anyway.

Where to work on the bus?

Does anyone know of a spot with power where we could park (extended period) and work on the bus?

See if your city has a uhaul moving and storage with covered RV storage. I have my busses in one and there is power, plus as long as you don't leave a mess or completely deconstruct like a roof raise they don't seem to mind work going on .
