Hi Steve,

I haven't found anyone who definitely knows how the windows are fitted but, from my own investigations, I have found out how the front ones are held in along the top. I'll email you some photos that I've taken. The headlining is tacked to a batten. Above the port-side front window I found seven woodscrews holding the batten to the roof structure through clearance holes in the frame extrusion, i.e. the frame is sandwiched between the batten and roof. There are also two further screws concealed beneath the batten which fasten the frame directly. I think that if the centre and corner cover pieces and the external screws along the bottom are removed the frame will come out. The headlining can be left on the batten although, in my case, care will be needed as the cloth is rather fragile.

There is also a batten with the headlining tacked to it above the side windows but there are no screwheads visible. It seems that this batten must be held by screws from the outside but I haven't been able to find any. The only explanation I can think of is that they must be under the aluminium beading which runs round the outer edge of the roof and there may also be some more concealed under the batten.

At the corner where the side and front frames meet there is a wooden pillar. I don't yet know if this is a structural member or just a filler.

If you find out anything further I'd be glad to hear about it.

Regards,

Mike.
