bubble window question

Post by mr sinbin on 3/2/2010, 12:29 am

hey guys,

just recently found myself a dirt cheap rear bubble window for my wb, only catch is that it has a split in one side Sad . so im just wondering if anyone knows if u can get them repaired and who i would see to get it done? also would it b worth it?

the other idea i had was maybe buy it and use it as a mould to get another one made, but again im not if this can be done or who i would c about doing it?

hopefully one of these options works cause they r worth a god dam forture!! hahaha

thanks guys
matt

Sorry SB this is all i could find. But there was a guy in sydney who makes them,might be worth trying to find him.

Why not try to make your own, couldn't be that hard Question just build a frame the size of the window.Then use a heat gun to soften the perspex till it droops, i did it once in the 70s, to make a clear roof for my suzuki 4wd. worked well till i rolled it. Embarassed

Much easier to just buy a new one from the manufacturer. Tinted rear bubble window for HQ-WB, below is the reply email I got for price plus postage to Qld.

Yes we do make these. Cost is $150.00 plus GST. Pack and freight would be around $60.00.
