If its just the plastics you need , even easier ...I can get a screen cut for you , the supplier still has my template .

I think the reason Mike never sent any out is because he didn't have access to my template or know who my supplier was !!!

Mike supplied mine with my car.

But useful to know you have the template as I have wondered about getting one cut in slightly thicker plastic. Any thoughts?

No need to apologise, it's an interesting and relevant discussion!


In case it helps, from what i saw of my original Sammio wind deflector, with a bit of cardboard and a lot of tinkering, i think it should be quite easy to fabricate yourself
i.e. if you've decided on the fixing strip and have that mountable, then you can simply create the wind deflector shape you want out of cardboard and then when happy you can transfer to some plexi.

I was thinking about taking that route at the start of the Miglia build as i quite fancied the wrap-around screen that continues on the doors. But i'm happy with what i've got. For now....

Thanks Dave. Yes, I like the idea of wrap-around screen, but I was not sure what to use to cut it with and would it crack when I cut it. Also, I was not sure how to get the smooth edges and can it be sanded with fine (wet?) sandpaper.....so much to research and learn, but I enjoy it.
I think I saw somewhere that tungsten jigsaw blades can be used for fine cuts and that they are good to cut plexi and makrolon sheets, but I need to research a bit more.

Good luck with finding better front springs.

Cheers, Deni
