1982 Newport 28 fixed portlights

Got a question for you owners of N28's. The fixed portlights on mine leak a bit, and I would like to remove and rebed them. However, I have indications that they are some leaks between the glass and its seal to the frame. Yes, my portlights are tempered glass. Everything I have seen pretty much applies to portlights that have plastic instead of glass. First question, does anyone know who made these portlights. As I said, they are glass with aluminum outer frames and plastic inner bezels. I have looked them over carefully and can not find any markings as to who made them. The glass has the small writing in the bottom corner indicating that they are tempered glass.
