Ffffaaawwkkkk.

Totally forgot that the guy working on my home was parked in my driveway. Backed into his CRV.... or rather my tire climbed on it.
I didn't need this....

In better news, finished up replacing the springs and shocks on my m416 trailer. Only a few weeks of procrastination during the job. Definitely education moments during this. Thanks to Bostondave for coming over at the beginning.

Yes, the latches do appear large but they do not protrude any further into the cargo space than the widow trim and maybe a bit less than the trim.
A word of caution if you are thinking of of ever returning a NAS D90 or NAS 110 to stock there is no going back after you install these windows.

Very cool, never fitted a pair of those. Latch mechanism is quite large.
I love those windows, there a huge leap forward from the original one on the market that had maybe 60% of the opening in glass. They had a wide solid area at the bottom that the latches were installed into. My only misgivings about putting these in my 90 is losing the ability to open the windows and ventilate.

I was hoping they were like the original sunroofs...where the latch opens them maybe 3 inches "or" detaches and you open them the entire way. Is this not the case? Are they either open or closed?

Assembled my Allisport XL intercooler and radiator after finally remembering to order the little rubber mounting grommets. Randy Kramer sourced these for me, there was a delay of some months but the communication was good. I used titanium fasteners to assemble the frame because they’re black, don’t corrode, and I’m a fan of over-doing things.

Hopefully I don’t have any of the pinhole problems that other Allisport customers have reported in the last few months...

There is no intermediate latch position, the window is either open or closed

Pls excuse my ignorance, why is this ? Did you have to remove material/open up the aperture ?
The aperture is the same the gullwings slip right in however the gullwing mounting flange is larger than the stock window flange and it is bolted on not using the rivet holes of the stock window. The bolt holes are outboard of the rivet holes. When going back to stock the bolt holes would be showing through the side panel.
