The front window is often pretty difficult to replace. I'm not sure when Scamp changed to a window that open for the rear window, but it opens it's pretty easy to replace.

Now the why do you need to replace them??

There was a period of time in which the standard back window was fixed plexiglass, but the shell had the recessed flat spot for an optional slider. If I were in that situation, I'd seriously consider making the switch to a slider. As far as I know, the one Scamp uses now fits all years with the flat recess.

The front fixed plexiglass is tricky. You'll want to replace both the window (cut your own using the old as a template) and the gasket. There are a number of old threads with links to gasket suppliers and how-to guidance. A Google site search on "replace front window" should turn up some good information. Or just take it to an auto glass shop and let them install it.

I need to replace them because they are both scratched up pretty bad and the front one leaks. also when towing the trailer with one of my street rods I tie the curtains open and look through the trailer when passing
