What are these (aero screens) ?


Recommended Posts

Nice pic Hamish!

Enough talk of aeroscreens....still trying to wean Ben's wife off the idea????

Don't worry as I only use them for competing. You note I drive too and from (1.5hrs+) each way with the windscreen ????

Hey Edwin! You're supposed to be nimble and flexible at your age I'd have expected more of an athletic vault straight in behind the wheel .

(some may need a crane - rather like King Henry VIII mounting his charger in full armour )

 

Sure i am ! Next time you see an adonis in a tr2, its me !!

 

its quite small with the large steering wheel.. and of course i was a bit nervous because of the heritage value, what would i break ???

I dont think my navigator is into the screens, fighting rains :)

But perhaps i Will have them fitted and ask one of the TC2500 boys to transport the windscreen for a day crossing the alps!

Well, I’m pretty impressed that I held out for so long! Honoured to have inherited TuRK’s unique screens!

Very pleased they went to you Ben, better than just sitting around gathering dust in my garage and not being used. 

Have fun with them. B)

Cheers, Andrew

WooooHoooooo!!!:):):):wub:

They look amazing!   Thank you Andrew for letting us be the new custodians of your lovely aero screens and to Drewmotty for all your time and help today:)

I'm now looking forward to sporting the new look on our trip to France at the end of September.   Do those of you that drive with aero screens recommend wearing goggles?  

Yes, Bob, the dry spell is sure to break now!:lol:  As the hood lets in water at the top of the windscreen and the side screens don't fit either, Geoffrey's wet weather gear seems to be designed to carefully channel all the rain straight into my lap.  I'm determined to go with the aero screens as I think I would rather be wet all over, than look like I've got an incontinence problem!:ph34r::blink::unsure:

My experience is that you only get wet if stopped.   Hiding behind an aeroscreen in the pouring rain at speed is a jolly jape.   Yes goggles help as you need some eye protection.   A good fitting hat is of great benefit too.   Sitting in the full sun on a parked motorway is horrid.  Have a parasol to hand or wide brimmed hat.   It amuses the ‘van with windows’ drivers and their sprogs. Tricking along in a TR in a traffic jam in 1 st gear with a brolly up is so English.  Just done this pass time this week on the M25, London’s orbital car park.

Ben and Vicky. Enjoy the new freedom and speed.
Aero screens are great fun, less so in the rain the helmet and visor help when racing or track days in the wet like at castle Combe.

only had to stop once and that was on the way to oulton park it was just too heavy to see and be moving. 
 

eye protection wise. I carry a pair of workshop glasses style in the glove box for when I feel the need. 
they need not look industrial

Do not forget that you can get bifocal safety glasses for the older ones amongst us with less than optimal near vision.  Great for reading micrometers in the workshop.

As an addition to all the above, The TR Register in Australia (back in the early 80's) use to have manufactured copies of the original optioned units in chromed brass. I have a set and they mount with a single bolt either side. As I can not access the details of the ones for sale, they may be some of those. I know some were sold overseas. At that time we also made thermostat housings, door striker plates and TR3 grills. Back then, parts were hard to get here.
