Re: Portlight/ window gaskets for CC 27 Mark 3

Hi Brad

I replaced my window gaskets several years ago.  I don't think there is a good way of knowing the exact circumference, aside from maybe holding a string up around the existing window.  That said, replacement gasket is often sold as a "kit" of set footage, which should give you plenty to do the replacement. 

One thing I regret doing though, is compressing, or "crowding" the gasket when installing, to allow for shrinkage.  Each of the new gaskets has shrunk at least 1/4" per window. Also wishing I remembered to leave the gasket seam at the top of the window, and not the bottom!

I didn't bother with a gasket per se... I came across a great deal on butyl tape once, and used that when I re-did my saloon windows. Worked like a charm.

I replaced mine with almost perfect replicates from the storm window & screen repair shop at a local hardware store. super glue the seam.
