ping beamends Richard


on the offchance... don't suppose you have series III windscreen glass?

some pillock has landed what looks like weld spatter on mine. I'll have a
go at getting it off/smooth sometime, but in the event that this ain't
successful...

No problem - stock item! There's is a slight downside though - all the
new ones are laminated instead if toughened, hence about 1-1.5mm thinner.

You could go and get a toughened one made at a glass shop. I got
windows for my 101 made in toughened as it was cheaper than laminated.

I doubt the price would be much different to Beamends (Richard - why
not get some toughened ones made up and sell them instead?)

feck me. It's not worth pissing around with it... what sort of job are they
to swap? millions of little screws like the other windows?

Laminated is better in some ways. I like the way it doesn't make a mountain
of glass chippings if it gets broke.

I had thought of that - but they are not exactly the top of
the sales list. Plus I'm uncertain about the insurance and legeslative
position regarding selling new toughend windscreens - any one know for
sure?

As you say, millions of little screws, plus either sealant or sealing
strip. Last time I did one I used double sealing strip to get the
screw holes to (almost!) line up. And some mastic......

H'mmm this would have to be declared as a modification for the
insurance...they are after all supposed to leak ;0)

in fact, it's hardly worth the effort of cleaning 'em at that price...

I take it you have suchlike (the sealing strip, anyway) as well?

I was contemplating the inept wipers - the springs in the arms have gone
weak, I reckon - not enough pressure on the screen. That and the bushes on
the spindles are naff - screws either buggered or sheared off. So a new
screen (at least for the driver's side - passengers don't have to see where
they're going) would improve matters.

I did mine a few years ago (twice actually after i cracked the screen
after fitting attempt 1!)

The screens are held in by the little metal strips on the inside,
which each have a few screws in.
I sealed mine using dum-dum. That stuff is great as it doesnt need
time to dry/cure like other sealants. Mine still doesnt leak.

The first time i fitted the screen i tried using silicon. This was a
bad idea. It didnt have time to dry before it got wet and therefore
never set properly. I then tried to dry it a bit using a hot air gun
and got the screen a little too hot!

I'll second the use of dum-dum. Bit of a bugger to use, but I put the side
windows in the 90 with it and had no leaks whatever.
