I was wondering what that was all about. What a bunch of verbal diarrhea. The ramblings of a truly disturbed mind.

I found this picture while searching for something else, the rear corners are what I am referring to. These are replacement panels for the Fleetline series of Bay Window buses made in Brazil and South America (I think). Anyway, I was thinking how neat they would look on a North American bay. The only thing that is different about the two models is the Brazil vand have small windows like a split. I wonder if the corner windows would work with the two big windows that all ours have....mind you, the cooling ducts would need to be re-located somehow.

Anyway, from the fab guys out there, thoughts?

After the corner replacement, reshaping the rear windows would be pretty straightforward. You could either use the original corners and do some shrinking and stretching to get them square, which would be a litte involved, or get donor bus pieces from the front edge of the rear window frames or either end from the middle windows and square off the back corner, then get new glass cut to fit. The trickiest part I think would be re-sizing the seals and getting a good fit on them.

Not that I'm the greatest metalworker out there, but here is a window repair I did, came out pretty good, fabbed all of the pieces myself.

You could leave the window alone also, but I think it would look funky with the angle.

Running those would mean losing the rear side scoops. Might look OK on a show car, but if I was heading up a long grade with a load on I might not be so thrilled...

I might think differently once I finish my watercooled bay project though....

It's better to install a spare part in your driveway than to find out it doesn't fit at the side of the road.
