Got my windscreen glass today, 35.





Course now I need wipers and demisters.

Cheers
Stot

Yeah I was chuffed with the price. 6.4mm laminated glass and they ground the edges too.

Wiper positions and lengths are taking some calculating but I think I have it cracked so to speak. My windscreen is quite shallow so I have to use 8" blades and 6.5" arms but it should work out.



Wiper boxes mounted with the rack at the bottom and the wiper motor under the passenger scuttle.

Cheers
Stot

Got my wipers in place tonight.



Just need to find a way to mount the motor now but the sweep on them works out well.

Cheers

The screen looks great and suits your car perfectly . I still don't know if I want one as I don't think it 'looks' as good but I have to wear a bike hat so I can see. Unless anyone else has any ideas.

I do have a set of Aviator goggles that I use on my Bike and that was option 2 for me.

I tend to wear these most of the time (with the strap fitted rather than the arms):

If you search the locost forum a discount code pops up for them periodically.
