I am chasing 4 OKA side windows to fit to the extended "bus" body going on my multi cab. Even 2 would be a start.

Lang if you are building a camper body you would be better off fitting proper caravan/motorhome windows that can be opened in inclement weather. 374 had blanking panels in most of the window apertures in the bus body and I fitted hopper style van windows with integral flyscreens to the blanking panels. If you are building your own body then fitting the hopper windows is a breeze and you can fit whatever size and shape you want. There are versions are ADR compliant and are double glazed as well.

400ah Lithiums, 1100w solar, diesel cooking heating and HWS,
Cummins 6BT, Allison 6 speed auto, Nissan transfer.

You are probably right. I just like the look of the continuity of the same windows and I do also like the "open plan" appearance of the almost full glass sides of the OKA bus.

I will not be shipping OKA windows across Australia and if I can not find some in the SE Qld region I will be going the caravan style as you suggest.

Has anyone removed Oka bus windows?
Do they come out as a whole or does the glass need to be removed first?
I'm in the process of tackling some rust under a couple of windows.
Cheers
Peter

they come out as a whole (if same as my XT). I found it easier to remove window with mounting rubber attached. Just push the rubber from the inside and they pop out.

I have removed/swapped around Oka bus windows. Yes, they pop out from the inside but we found it difficult to do unless the rubber is freed/unstuck from the surround (hopefully they haven't been Sikaflexed).

Lubricate the rubber and you should be able to ease/lever them out.

When replacing, wind a loop of nylon cord around the frame to allow the rubber to be pulled through the surround from the inside, similar to this:
