Re: Side plexiglas window extrusion

I located some used sliding Plexiglas still had the extrusions on them, I was lucky all four extrusions were still installed, going to take a ride this weekend and pick them up. A bunch of great guys in the Aeronca Family.

Side plexiglas window extrusion

I am hunting four Aluminum metal extrusions that are installed on a 7 AC and attach to the side Pilot plexiglas windows that slide, the 4 parts I need ,I’ve checked all the normal vendors,and no body makes these aluminum parts,. Hoping somebody has some old units that they would be willing to sell.
