Default AMA flush fit slider windows

Hello

I received my AMA Windows today One for the sliding door and the other for the drivers side. Purchased from "Van Windows Direct" for $550 each and free delivery within the US.

First impression is that they are very beautiful windows. Came really well packed in a crate. The sliders are very tight so rattling shouldn't be an issue. Time will tell.

Found a local glass shop that will install them for around $150 if I cut out the panels. So that will be my project this weekend.

Pic's attached - upside down for some reason?????

Very nice. Look just like the factory ones you get in Europe.

The large venting of these windows beats all others. Is there any way a screen could be employed with these sliders? Perhaps something that could be popped on and off with velcro when camping.

Does the manufacturer AMA have any such option?

Are these available for 06 Sprinters? Specifically the right side sliding door and the opposite window behind the drivers seat. I have factory limo glass now in both of those locations and would love to put these sliding windows in their place. Thanks to all here.

I've been thinking about using these in my next build. What did you trim the inside with? Trimlok?

I haven't trimmed them yet. Wanted to see what the dealer trim would cost but I may end up with Trimlok.

Its only around $30 each for the factory trim but I don't think it will work as the factory opening is stepped. Hard to explain but when you cut out the hole for the window there are two layers of metal. The outer layer has to trimmed back another 3/8" or so for the trim to fit properly against the glass. I only know this because I installed factory glass in my van and it was a bit of a pain.
