Top Sash Guide for 25-year old Eagle windows

A handy person from Vandalia OH says:
I went to your website and was able to locate a virtual dead ringer with Product Code #18-069. The only slight difference is the small tab hanging down on the outer edge. On my piece, the tab is 1/4 wide. Looking at the tab from the end, there is a U-shaped cutout area behind it...in other words, the rectangular cutout area allows you to see through the piece on the bottom, left and right sides of the tab.

My guess is that IF I need a guide with a smaller width tab, I can simply cut it with a knife.

The purpose of my email is: Does the #18-069 come in black? It is shown in white on your website. However, my windows are anodized bronze with black guides. If the black ones aren't available, I could simply order the white ones and attempt to spray paint them.

Thanks for your help.

Thank you for your patience in this matter, Dave. Unfortunately, our 18-069 is not available in black. I am sorry we cannot be of more help.

Received the white Top Sash Guides yesterday. I'm going to try painting one of them black. I haven't yet tried installing one, but comparison to one of the guides off of my windows looks like they will work. I'll keep SWISCO appraised of the match.

Thanks for your help.
