I am in Ottawa--Plastics of Ottawa--just google a location in QC for plastic/sign manufacturer's 3/16" dark tint plexiglass; rough cut--Lexan is very costly although it doesn't scratch as much.
I just popped the old one out and they cut me a new one in 10 minutes!

I am going to use the old one as a rock guard on the front--just re-paint with Krylon paint or I may put diamond plate on it? So many ideas, so little time! Bien a vous!

I would like to replace the window seal in the front window on my 13' Scamp I purchased the beading and lockstrip directly from Scamp, but i'm not sure where to start. I would like to do the project myself instead of bringing it to a dealer for replacement. Has anyone taken on the project before. Thanks

My wife and I just replaced our front and back winow seals on our 13 Scamp. Used the lock strip tool and a butter knife to pry the seal over the windows with no problem. Started on one side and worked accross. As to the lock strip it was rather easy using dish soap and the lock strip tool. Remember to silicone the main seal when it joins together. We pulled out about three inches of lock strip in this area squeezed in the silicone and pushed the lock strip back in. No leaks Yea! Watch the videos also they are helpful. We placed the lockstrip side of seal on the outside.

Rather than using Silicone, I'd recommend using black windshield caulk. It's formulated to be used with rubber and is not affected by heat or cold, water or ice.

Hi: All... I used 3M Super Weatherstrip And Gasket Adhesive (Black) to bond the ends of the window gaskets together. I also used it to fill the tiny opening at the bottom of the rear window, where the gasket had pulled apart...TaDa no more leaks!!! Google www.3m.com but I think any good auto supply store should carry it.
Some jobs are no fun at all...but very satisfying when done right.

Dan, are you saying that the sliding window would be easier to install than just the plexi pieces?

Also, did you install the sliding window only on the front window, or both front and rear? Thanks so much!
