Window replacement help in Florida..???
#11
Not just a poor choice.. If you saw the inside you would cringe..can the whole window be removed and metal replace it with a gasket kinda thing? And just put a good window in the sliding door ?
I have a roof vent which I will eventually attach to a solar panel .

Or the window replacement it's not plexi.. But it's better properties. Which keep the heat / cold out

to properly get rid of the widow a piece of sheet metal would need to be welded in. not an easy or cheap job. however for a temporary fix you could remove the window and get a piece of sheet metal larger then the opening and use something like 3M VHB tape to cover the opening. I wouldn't count on it as a permanent fix. highdesertranger

Ah... Okay .. However I would rather put windows in and make it look better I can always black out the windows..I am on a very limited budget so I'd rather do this just once .

Shift Chick - I'm working on getting you some help there!

What is the make/model/year of your van?

Does it look like the window openings were there before - as in it had stock windows in the beginning and someone replaced them with the jalousie windows?

Are there more than just the two of them on the passenger side - ie is there stupid stuff on the driver's side or back as well?
Worry is a misuse of imagination!

Anything else you need to know ??

That was not done by any professional.
