Not too big a job, just need to be careful with the edges to make sure all the primer and bonding adhere correctly.

Also take care when ordering as if you are doing both the sliding door and the panel opposite they are different in size but the same price.

thanks chaprs


orangevanman are they that much of a pain in the to fit , do you just fit them for yourself or you run a company that does them might be easyer for me to just pop up with the side door rather than risk fooking it up lol am not worried about cutting or doing it myself though

do they come with a template or just quick mesure up and cut away T:

Not too much of a pain to fit if you are careful and know what you are doing.
I dont run a company i used to work for RAC Autowindscreens for 5 years so i have fitted hundreds of windows, and i still put loads of windows into vans.
they dont come with a template but if you look inside the door you will see a recess line where to cut.
once cut though you will need to adhere together the panels that are left (inner and outer).
i normally weld mine but you can use polyeurethene for this too, then prime etc etc etc
Alot of people just put the window in and leave it taped up
I dont do this though i put the window in and then apply a lot of pressure to the glass until dry, if you dont do this the window will not sit flush to the body and will stick out.

if you want me to fit it/them for you just send me a pm and we can talk that way.

regards Matt
