Windscreen part 1

To fit the windscreen you’ll need some masking tape a pencil, rule and maybe a tape measure!

  • Put some tape down and mark a centre line on the scuttle – I used the bonnet hinge and my guide which was previous painstakingly placed in the middle!
  • Place the ali cover that goes under the screen on the scuttle measuring 130mm back from the scuttle edge (back edge inside car) on both sides. Also mark 60mm back.
  • Mark 7mm out from the metal edge – this creates a slot shop that the windscreen sides can drop into. Got to be careful that the holes are parallel with the edges of the screen!
  • Drill a series of holes inside the marked area, cut and file them out. Now you can drop the screen to test fit! That’s about as far as we got this weekend!
