Re-glazing ABI bronze ports

I have a Liberty Pied Piper with 8 ABI bronze ports. In all of them, the glass, which is a laminated safety type glass, have clouded from UV exposure to the film used to make the glass "safety". I can buy replacement glass and gaskets from Sailboat Stuff.
Question: has anyone re-glazed ABI ports? The gasket looks easily removable but the glass seems bedded in a type of mastic. Anybody know what this stuff is and how easy(??!!) the job might be?
Thanks
