I will be installing a different front window in my Burro
soon, a Hehr I got on Ebay. It is not a perfect fit, being slightly longer in width and flat. The original window is not flat, being angled slightly to conform to the egg body. That means I will have to add tapered shims left and right around the outside rim when its clamped in place. This shouldn't be a problem and it also gives me some leeway for adding a rock guard.
Question is, how to attach rock guard to the window framing. Have not seen any difinitive pictures anywhere on how they attach. The original Burro
installation manual shows what looks like a weird aluminum extrusion that I assume runs the length of the window and acts as a hook-on thingie for a rock guard. That don't look so good to me even if I could find one to match. I want my rock guard to stay securely in place when in transit, and maybe swing up in place as an awning
I asked the Hehr rep about this. He's ordered the inside mounting clamp rings I need, but had no answer. Use standard hinges screwed into trim? Is that it? Or is there a more better way?? Yah, also thinking about how to prop it open. I was browzing around an auto junk yard for sizzor jacks ($5 each) and noticed those light
thin rear window lift shocks on junked SUV's.
