Hiya!

Many thanks to you Shaun. Do you think couriers would be prepared to transport glass from Belgium? I'm beginning to wonder if it's an option.

I'm pleased that we will have screens in the future, but as you said, only a shame my windscreen couldn't have held out a little longer. What do you reckon, just keep using it until then maybe?! :lol:

Glass items are on either the restricted or prohibited items list of all couriers, meaning if they accept the item it won't be covered by insurance unless you can negotiate special a deal.

What specification are you looking to replace it with?

When Frank's screen shattered, I carefully gaffa taped the inside, working from outside perimeter, inwards, running the tape over the seal as well.
I then taped the outside, it came put in one carefully tape wrapped parcel!

Ok they plan is as follows!

Cliftyhanger has wonderfully brought down MIGwelder's spare windscreen, which I will borrow for 10 weeks until Pilkingtons make me a new one. I'm just after a clear glass laminated windscreen! :lol:

I will be carefully parcel taping the inside then outside of the windscreen. Sounds like I got away with a lucky escape!!

I'm beginning to believe I have sundym glass - all the other glass is sundym, so even if it wasn't before, it will be now!

As a temporary measure, I've now fitted Tony's glass! :D Many thanks to both Tony and Clive! :)

A toughened sundym screen is a real rarity these days and your car is from the last year they were fitted at all to the range. The laminated screen was only an option until the 76 facelift, after that, it was standard equipment.
