Grr! I know everything about pgt glazed vinyl window replacement... Except....

I'm the new owner of a 1960s Florida home with 124 glazed vinyl porch windows, they're the 4 track vertical window systems made by PGT industries.... I've been able to locate, purchase and install every single replacement part available (thumb latches, Locks, Keepers, Hinges, Springs etc etc) but I cannot, for the life of me figure out how to replace the actual 10mil glazed vinyl film.

It's unbearably difficult; I'm unable to figure out how to strech the vinyl evenly in order to make it taught enough for to install the slpine.
Can someone.... ANYONE provide me with whatever the obvious trick is to this?

Here's the website for the windows BTW!

Welcome to the forums I have only seen this type window once, and from what I understood, the clear material was installed in the factory under a heat process that made it taut in the frame after it was splined. I would contact PGT to see if the glazing is a diy project or not. Others on the forum may have had experience with them, so hang in there for their comments.
