Are the windows the same size as the windows in the front and back at the top? I deleted those so I have one. I broke one. Seems like it's close to the same size?

That's almost the size of half of one of the windows. I wonder if you could make that work?

You can't cut tempered glass. You'd have to adjust the size of the opening or the gasket. The windows are tempered. They are not as thick as the door, windshield and upper window glass. That stuff is about 1/4"

Are your existing windows double pane and can you remove just the inner pane? If so then Lexan would be fine, it won't crack or break.

Our bus doors had broken glass and they were rusty. We found a new set with zero rust and perfect glass in a salvage yard.

We had the windshield glass replaced by a RV glass company, When he was doing that he said he could do the doors as well, but by then we have the replacement door, we just had not installed them yet.

But our glass was not double pane, just regular auto glass.
