Good pics, thanks! Ready for more whenever you are!

Are your new winders sliders? That one is definitely a slider...woo hoo! I'd like to have sliders in ours instead of the original "swing" style...not this year!


Looking good!

Our rear window doesn't open, either. In a way, I wish it was higher, smaller and did open. Seems kinda odd to me that it's so low. Viewing while eating, maybe?

Interesting. I've always preferred tilt windows. It's one of the things I liked about my Parkliner.

The tilt or swing windows are great for keeping rain out...and easy to take off and clean, but they don't open as far as I'd like. Jalousies are very good for air flow and blocking rain. Sliders more modern, and probably more available.

I will be working on all support/structure for Windows today. The roof has dropped down, so I will build window supports to raise the roof 1/2" to 1".
