The sealant is curing now. We'll see ....
BTW, I went to 3 local glass shops and all 3 said the pane had to be cut and tempered at "the factory" (apparently due to one corner having a fairly large radius) ... about $60 per pane and around 4 weeks for delivery after they received the pattern. Hence the Lexan.

I had Dave "Do" the same driver's window plus a rear bedroom window. What was great besides me NOT doing it, was that Dave patiently explained each step in the process, especially why the original SE Gi failed in the first place. Dave particularly emphasize the importance in cleaning the glass panes at each step in the re-assembly. He used a foaming glass cleaner that is available at Costco.

Dave Root did windows on a Safari we used to own. We drove to Bend, Oregon and stayed in an RV park. He came out removed a window, took it somewhere came back & installed the window, then took the next window, etc. I'd not hesitate to HIGHLY RECOMMEND his services.
