Going to install window in door - clearance amount?
I bought a 12" X 20" window frame and tinted tempered glass window to install in our TT dor. There is no existing window there and the parts I bought didn't say how much clearance to provide between the outer lip of the frame (see pic for what I'm calling the outer lip) and the cutout. I was just wondering if others who have done this mod have a go by for that clearance. My thought is 1/16" to 1/8" so you have some room to slide the frame & window in and adjust it for straightness.
I just want to be outside!!!

yes you need a little play to adjust but it also has to overlap good to get a good seal. Measure and mark twice and cut once. What are you cutting with? You may need to cut twice from each side. I had issues with a jig saw blade pulling the fiberglass skin as it went up and down through the door.
