Mercedes Vito Glass Conversion
Mercedes Vito side window glass conversion completed for a client in Wakefield.
Here at Autobody Windscreens we were commissioned to install privacy side windows into this Mercedes Vito panel van for a client who was requiring more light and seating in the van for trips away with the family mountain biking, here are some pictures and information of how we did it…
First job is to remove the side panels were the glass is going to be installed. This can be done by various methods but we find air powered panel removal tools, nibblers,metal shears and panel saws are the only choice for a neat and tidy job which wont damage the bodywork if used correctly.
Both panels removed causing no damage to the vehicle, look how neat, tidy and straight the cut edge is with equal corners! This is what you need to achieve for the professional fit.
NOTE – All bare metal (cut edge) must be treated with a anti-corrosive primer! I also like to use an Acid Etch which will also aid against rust forming in the near future.
Once all metal work has being treating and has had the required time to dry you can fit the inner trim which hides the cut edge and makes the inside neat and tidy. Glass can then be fit using the right automotive polyurethane and method, making sure to de-contaminate glass and prime or activate accordingly!
Clamps are used on the back edge for a superior fit.

We fitted a privacy half opener in the near side sliding door to let air in when carrying passengers in the back.
