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!
Windscreen loosely slotted through the scuttle
Stainless plates do a good job of covering holes chopped into the scuttle.
With the screen pulled back the metal of the screen frame pretty much touches the scuttle
Screen should provide a decent amount of wind protection. Side screen may still need to be fitted!
The driver side – the bottom hole just bolts in with a spacer, not sure yet how the top bolts in yet as the brackets have a huge bend in them that don’t seem to line up with anything.
The ali panel under the screen is not the right shape but once the rubber strip is added it almost fills the gaps – some filling work will be need to make it fit better.
All we need now are some wishbones!
