Need to get a windscreen changed on a kit car, anybody got any recommendations around Loughborough/Leiceste/Nottingham area?

It's a. bit unusual and not straight forward so looking for someone used to doing classics/sports cars. Had a local mobile screen fitter look at a few weeks back and completely useles, couldn't even cut a piece of rubber to the correct size!

I can recommend Auto Body Tec up in Sandiacre as a bodyshop that does anything that's a bit unusual. They've always got something interesting in and I've been very happy with their work.

Don't know if they stretch to glass, though. Call them? They might know someone as they do classics.

What is it you need doing? Is there glass available for it or do you need a flat sheet cut to size?

No don't need anything cutting, I have a replacement screen ready to fit.

The difficulty is the screen is bonded into a recess, it's a curved screen and being a typical kit car the recess is not exactly the same shape as the screen. The screen has a rubber seal that needs to be cut and bonded to the screen prior to fitting.

Its not going to be the easiest thing to remove or refitted, and I don't currently have a replacement seal.

Send me some pictures if possible and I'll see what I can sort for you. I work for Autowindscreens, no longer on the tools but I know a great fitter at the Leicester branch in Narborough who has 20+ years of experience.
