Port light removal KK42

I've got an 82 KK42... anyone ever change the glass on pilothouse aft port lights. Appears you can tap out pins... is there anyway to change the glass? Galley Port I can see the bronze screws holding glass trim ring in so no problem there.

If you nock the pins out and remove the gasket, you'll see the brass, Phillips head screws. If I had to replace the glass I might be inclined to take the port light to a reputable glass shop and have them remove the frame, old glass and install the new.

Thanks that worked perfectly. I brought all of my portlights back to original bronze with a lemon soak (thanks Costco) painted em with clear enamel. Good as new. Now for the surrounds.

P.S. I also dunked each of my bronze screen mounts into a lemon bath. Coated with clear poly... and rescreened. Maavelous! Some donít like the shiny brass look. I happen to channel the old British salts on fighting sailing vessels of yore: if itís metal, polish it till it gleams. (Of course cheating a bit with the clear poly.)
