Bodywork & Paint
Looking for some ideas on windscreen replacement please - 1926 Rover 9 2 door. Have a screen with small part of one bottom corner broken off, so it should be fine as a pattern for a new one. Its flat, measures as 5.5mm, ;looks like toughened, edges are rough. The frame where the seal goes is 10mm, and I have new rubbers from Clarks which are a good fit in the frame. I can get the old glass into the rubber with some difficulty, which seems correct, as we dont want it at all loose. My local glass shop can cut a new screen in 6mm, but dont know anything about windscreens . Can anybody recommend a glass outlet that does understand old flat windscreens and how they should fit into frames etc please?
Try Petes Prestige Windscreens Google them for contact
Thanks, will give them a call.
I have used Stevens Glass at 375 Maroondah Highway for glass for the car I am restoring. I made a template out of plywood or nelson board/cardboard and they cut the galss and toughened it for me. Maybe you find them on your google machine or drive there.
I had some done for the Morris (over 10 years ago) by "Windscreens O'Brian", Geelong Rd Brooklyn, but any of their outlets can organise this.

Windscreen all sorted, and assembled! Thanks for all the responses.
Not sure if this is correct way to ask a question of the group, however can you recommend a reputable Panel / Spraypainting shop that club members have used and are satisfied with results. I live in Wheelers Hill.
