hi Phil, fwiw I ve used a widebody westfield screen pillars and mirrors , not through iva myself but on the basis that westy's go through it with them then they should be fine. the lower screen edges needed fettling and the lower part of the stanchions too.
I think there would need to be some sort of standardisation on the scuttles as they are slightly different (I used Saturn / gillham).
I did put a windscreen thread up, with how I did it
good luck

that would be a good cost effective way of dealing with the scuttle variation as once you have the "fillet" moulds these could be produced as required, the westfield pillars are often available quite reasonably priced if you were after a set to experiment with. These have the benefit of having mirrors attached although the early ones don't have the mirror boss.
I reckon it would have to be flexible / adaptable as we are speaking of quite a small market for 7 esque cars and then take off the ones who prefer the aero approach it would be very low volume , I think ...... although there is no one filling the gap at present.
The next thing to source are small wiper arms and blades, wiper motors/drive old mini or mgb will fit the bill with the addition of an earth the mgb one plugs straight into an mx5 loom connector thus giving all std operations

that sounds promising, the westy screen I bought was 160 + 25 for the plywood shipping box +vat and carriage tot was 240 ish, the supports/mirrors I bought second hand, but again if looking at that style a second hand pair could provide "inspiration".
as a thought many years back we did rc model aircraft fuselages and the way we did that was to make a ply box which was returned after the customer had received their item, there was a surcharge which was refunded on receipt of the box back to us in useable condition , saved a lot on time/ expence making them and the customer ultimately didn't pay for the box (he did pay to return the box)

some options to consider re screen supports
mirror attachment points ... or not
door / wind deflector attachment points... or not
strength as there is a fair bit of force hitting the screen
body attachment etc.
Im sure you have considered these points, just stuck at home today and throwing it out to you, don't mean to offend..
Heaven knows we need people to explore , develop , supply things to benefit those of us who cant.
Keep up the good work
