    Hi all
    I need to replace all my window rubbers prior to getting my bus sprayed
    Is it easier to buy a set or just a roll?
    And best place to buy please.
    Cheers Lou

    Rubbers are formed into their correct shapes - I don't think a roll will work for you.

    Get the bus sprayed first, then have your rubbers ready for when the bus comes back from painter or upholstery, as windows go in after headlining. As mentioned above each window rubber is complete ready to fit in each window. Unless you have a panel van that has had windows cut in.

    Hi I removed that type of window and replaced with sliding windows from jk so hopefully get better air flow. And they fitted really nice.

    @Ijam i did the same for some OG ones.
    @Lou Littleoak make sure there is no rust in the window frames. They are notorious for rusting.

    On the drivers side in the photo you can see a knob that opens the 1/4 window, on the passenger side looks like there isn't one on the silver latch, which the knob goes on the end on the pivot or silver latch.

    Let me know have some kicking about. You have to take the whole lever arm off which is held on by a rolled pin and another put on the same way.
