Thanks Guys,
That's a possible five screens. I've spoken to the supplier and I suggested that we may be able to make an order up of ten screens. He is coming back to me tomorrow with a price, delivery he anticipates would be about June. I'm thinking here we go again. I said I didn't want to do this again, but it is keeping our funny little cars on the road!

Put my name down for 3 ( yes 3, but I'm not being greedy, I need one for my MK2 and my newly acquired MK3, and sods law definitely means Ill need a spare.

In planning the wiring circuit, can anyone advise the current draw/fusing (either per side or the two sides together).
I suspect it's quite a draw (25 amps per side ????) and was considering swithching the timer relay output to driver or passenger side.
Sorry, can't find any clues to this anywhere on the forum.
Look forward to hearing

Is this of any help?

I'll need to do the same thing eventually. Most of the results I found were for Land Rover Defenders which were all over £100, but these two are for Minis so they're a lot cheaper.
I have no idea why, they do the same job, and I'd guess the screen areas aren't too dissimilar.

I'm tempted to have one. How much will they be?

Many thanks Damian

It is probably timely to mention that Alistair is accumulating requests for windscreen rubbers for these screens When I contacted him before Christmas he was about 3 short of enough requests to go ahead and order 100 metres

You have took the words right out of my mouth. I also spoke to Alistair just before Christmas about the windscreen rubbers and put my name down for 2 lots. He said that he had been waiting a while for numbers to build up, so perhaps this thread can push them up that little more.

Now only one more order needed to make up the numbers. 8-)
