My Van Conversion

Installation Of Side Windows

By on 30th September 2016

So ive purchased my van recently and im now considering cutting a big hole in each side, worrying i could do it wrong aswell and ruin the van completely. Not going to lie it scared me.

In my opinion having side windows installed on any van conversion are a must. Not only do they let in an incredible amount of light, but will also change the whole look of the vehicle itself. It will no longer look like a standard works van, but start to look like a beautiful home.

I recommend this job to be done with two people and not attempted on own. In this case I had my brother-in-law nick help. I chose to do the sliding door first because if we messed it up I could just buy a new door.

Nick did the cutting while I guided and supervised him.

These windows have let in so much light

These windows were not as hard to install as I had thought they were going to be. When installing these its best to put tape on the top of the window to stop it from dropping when setting or lodge something in the bottom groove, I made this mistake and one window dropped slightly.

Please ask any questions you have on installing these. I will be creating a guide at some point soon on everything I do.
