I found a spare the other day that I forgot I had. :? Since I plan to keep an opening rear window if possible, I shall be hanging on to it. :mrgreen:

The original frame glass will fit in the car using the same rubber profile as a Husky / van tailgate window .
I did this on the Singer as the original frame also dissolved into powder.
It does leave a ledge for water to sit so mine only stayed like it a month or two .


After tthis I had some glass especially cut and fitted it using an Imp screen rubber cut down.


After this i managed to find a few good rear windows so went full circle and back to an opening rear window
