plexiglass window seal

Hello - I am going to replace the seal on my plexiglass windows of my 1974 Scamp 13. Do you all use the lockstrip sold directly by scamp? Or is there somewhere else I can get it cheaper?

Thanks!

Melanie

Melanie - I purchased the gasket directly from Scamp and had the new Lexan windows (front and rear on my 1983 Scamp) installed at an automobile windshield replacement business. The business carried an identical gasket, and it was priced similar to Scamp's, so you might be able to purchase one locally and save shipping time and expense.

There is also an inexpensive tool which is recommended to help with the job. If you do a search in the forum, you'll come up with several threads relating to the replacement and the exact tool.

I'll give you a heads up that the windows can easily still leak after replacement, so do your research for additional gasket sealers, etc.to be applied in the gasket before you start. I've had mine back to the shop twice and they still leak some.

That gasket is still in common use for replacing flat glass in
heavy equipment, like backhoes, cranes and payloaders.
Any full service glass place should have it in stock.
