We replaced all the windows at annual. The windshields and front sides are 1/4". I'd classify them as serviceable. We changed the windshield for the one piece and everything else because we wanted tinted windows.

Free to anyone who wants to come get them. If I don't get any interest, they will go on the dumpster.

Do they fit on an early Saratoga ? My front windscreens are really old and they are on my list as something that could use replacing in the next year or two. Are the ones you have in pretty decent shape? I may be interested.

Maybe we can swap pics of the windscreens and see if what you have would be a significant improvement. If not I may just replace like you've done.

If nobody takes them, keep in mind that windshields make great plastic scrapers. If you have any projects that require scraping sealant, or glue, and you want to avoid damaging any aluminum, then keep a piece of window to cut and sharpen into a scraper.

I'll take some pics today. They aren't new, but I wouldn't have swapped them out if we weren't going to one piece windshield.

I'm keeping all of the 1/8" rear windows for just that reason.

Here's some photos. If they are better than what you have, you're welcome to them.

Sent you a PM yesterday.
Never got a PM.
that would be because it was sent to me by mistake ;) lol

N34DL might want to send it to rrc1962:D

The windows do look to be in great shape. I've put a lot of thought into it and I'll probably pass on them though. They aren't terribly expensive and when I do the change I think I might lean towards some tint as well. Also my glare shield could use a little sprucing up as well...

N34DL seems like he could use them though:)
