i installed a bus depot wetfalia canvas three window on mybus and it fit fine, took a hell of along time to do one pizza and six pack later no probs, the canvas was about 150.00 less than the gowesty...and the pop top seals & luggage rack seals was quite a savings too> when i questioned bus depot on the diff in pricing Rick told me they order them direct and have a warehouse full of them vs the competition that orders one at a time...i dunno but mine came out great...PS...Couldt have done it w/o the link from here, thanks so much :lol:  :D  :)

i tell ya man it was 110 miles one way, but i dont regret it for 1 minute Mike & lisa & their sons are kindred spirits and really do it for the love....I hadnt been there in over 12 years and it was like going home...they have a mexican 1992 panel van there thats really cool. and plenty of parts vans & boy they are down to earth, not like some of these euro auto places on the seacoast that just want to rape you for the BIG SCORE
