Yes I did it s pain in .. but is doable Mailme petrpompa@ yahoo.com got some pictures.
1 remove windows frames only from outside ,they will brake it is given,
2 assuming you have acrylic / lexan , what ever clear or tinted ,peal old windows out of framer ,(they will brake even more)
3 copy shapes of windows and cut them
4 glue frames back together i used bondo , not perfect but works, fill screw holes also
5 use grinder and dremel tool to clean bondo ,predrill new srew holes on different locations
6 use plastic paint in spray (home Depot/ Rust olleum) to prime frames
7 peal plastic film from lexan and silicon windows on frames,after 24 h add beat of silicon to completely seal widow and frame
8 clean window openings out of debris , test windows,fix what is necessary, trace pencil outside perimeter
9 use blue tape to cower outside area that not to be goop-up by silicon run generous amount silicon around windows especialy ower old screw holes and stick windows in
10 screw all in and let it dry for 24 h cut around w utility knife and remove blue tape with leftover of silicon ,you could run thin beat of almond silicon around outside window. Frames might crack again ,plastic is old , just silicon them and be happy ,mine works fine and don't leak .Do fix inside frames in winter time. fair wind.
