Fairchild 24 Windows

Anybody know the thickness of the forward left and right windows on an F-24? I'm talking about the curved plexiglass ones beside the safety-glass center.

I just bought the airplane and these need replacement -- one is crazed, the other is lexan and milky.

Hi Dave,
You might check out the Fairchild club on Yahoo. Some of these organizations, similar to WIX have people with vast amounts of expertise, and knowledge of what you are looking for.

Thanks, guys. I've got a set on order from LP Aero -- not that expensive, either. The contact came from the Fairchild Club.
