Rear window for Aluminium hardtop.

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any experience of getting something like this made to pattern?

Unfortunately neither the ST or the 'not great' repro efforts are a close fit,

although they do look very similar.I have the old screen in 2 halves, and it does

have the compound curvature that the steel/glassfibre factory screens have.

If they could make them for a tiny product run such as the ally h/tops 60 odd years ago,

one would hope the expertise exists? Be nice to have a 'stiff' one instead of those

dreadful floppy jobs sold by retail chums!

Phone call to Steve with the Alvis Healey may turn up trumps on this as I think he had a couple of perspex screens made for his Healey 'Sportsboat 55 & 75' motor boats.
