I actually got to moved the car around under it's own power this weekend.
I found the engine is in desperate need of a tune-up and the brakes need some attention but it's getting there.



I did find it hard to get out of the car due to it not having the "lump" across the floor that a Herald has so I'll have to fabricate something to help.

The new wind screen surround was not as serviceable as I first thought ( it tends to twist the Perspex screen out of shape), I decided to re-make it .

I first re-cut the screen pattern on some sheet and fixed it in position.



The block of wood is helping keep the screen panel a uniform shape and curve.

I then filled in the small cap along the bottom edge and sanded the area smooth.



Coated the area with PVA mould release.



Followed by a good layer Gel coat.



And finally a good thick lay-up of fiberglass.



All left to dry over night.

I fitted the production windscreen with-out the new surround just to confirm it did fit.




To my surprise the screen fits so well with just a little trimming and a few bracket the fiberglass surround could be an option. .





I just need to bed-in the brakes and it's ready for MOT.

Still waiting for a clear workshop and a dry day to road test this car.

The new wind screen surround worked out well.

Hi micky1mo,

How thick is the screen sheet and what do you use to cut it please?
Also, how high it is please?

Cheers, Deni.

All my screens come pre-cut from Chris at Tribute Automotive so you'll have to contact him for the spec.
This screen is to high so will be trimmed down to suit at a later date.
I'll use a thin cutting disc on a 4" grinder to trim and shape it.

It passed the MOT today but I met with a very angry MOT tester!!!

Angry at the fact he couldn't get out of the car with-out some help, much to the enjoyment of his fellow workers!!!

Mike - Congratulations on the MOT pass.

The problems your MOT guy had are why the MOT place I go to insists that I do the driving onto the ramps and the brake rollers.

Good luck, Paul.
