Default Questions for Bob. Side curtains/Spats

H Bob, the fixed portion of the plexiglass side window is cracked on one side. I could probably replace it myself with a bit of guidance. It looks like its held in with rivets. Would you know the replacement size and would I just drill them out top get the glass out? I'm only 30 minutes from you. Is bringing it in for ERA to fix also an option?

The Velcro has come off of both the spats. Do you use adhesive backed Velcro and if so, can you point me in the right direction to buy some replacements?
Thanks Bob.... Mike

Not Bob but the rivets are 1/8" black head - not sure of the length but fairly easy to figure from an examination. I bought some black coated ones when I re-worked my side curtains and found it's almost impossible to install them without some coating damage. It's just as easy to use standard aluminum rivets and touch them up afterwards with a small brush and some black paint. Drilling the rivets out is the approach to separating the frame pieces and replacing the plexiglass. Seeing as you are right there in CT taking them over to ERA would be a good idea;

Bob, is the Velcro sewn into your spats at ERA?

I'll have to confirm tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure that it's glued on.
