    Hi Nick, where did you get the plunger/contacts from? Looks a good preventative job to do.

    Your car's looking mega by the way.

    Cheers Matt, This is fine for the job. Add a note that you would like the strait contacts. Ive used them a few times with no problems. All still going strong. There are a lot of choices on e Ebay though. Don't confuse yourself.:

    Brilliant, thanks Nick.

    (Sorry for tardy reply.. tinkering time has been devoted to a different car of late. Though hopefully it won't be much longer before my redcar comes back off its holidays)

    New screen fitted today. All went in fine and looks a treat.

    Back of the windscreen seal fitted to the glass. Metal trim is also fitted but you can't see it. You have to fit both together with the large top section of trim. The bottom piece and the corners are fitted last and is a bit of a fiddly job and hard to describe. You need to do it to know. It was WTF for a while until I worked it out. I don't fit windscreens as a general rule so I employed a local experienced fitter to come in for the final bit. He applied all of the required primers and sealers and with him in charge we put the screen in. Nice to be fully involved with the process from start to finish.

    Front view of the seal and trim fitted to the glass. There is still a protective film on the trim.

    Yes Ron. Its been on my mind for a while. Not to bad if everything is prepped right first. Test fit dry then commit. I would do one on my own now if I had to. The hardest bit is getting the trim and seal on and aligned correctly the rest is just glue it in the hole really. On one of the pics you can see a small piece of orange fine line tape. This is for alignment after I was happy with the test fit. We just put it back exactly to
    that position.
