Buy some goggles. I have some that look like oakleys but have foam on the inside. Got the on eBay for about a tenner. Much nicer than with a helmet on.

Build cost.... seems to be spending more on tools than car bits at the moment! (they will be handy in the future though).
Car iva'd and passed 15/08/2014. Finished weight 572kg.

something like this?

The GBS Zero wide body (I think it is the "GT") has slightly the same dimensions as a Haynes. I have a flyscreen from GBS on my car, and it perfectly fits my Equinox scuttle. I'm pretty sure the windscreen kit should fit too (you might need to trim the glass to fit your scuttle though). The kits are available from Kitspares, and of course they are not cheap
