except removal of glue/sealant could have been a PITA ? :shock: never ever set anything 'in a safe place' :wink:

not sure if an insurance company would pay up on that one? although screens are still available NEW, tinted were on six week lead, but they might have made another batch?

Nah! That’s just an excuse to fit a much lighter plastic screen😁

Polycarb windows are much safer should you have a scenery/car interface moment :wink:

And I hear it’s very difficult for a scrutineer to check/spot the thickness is correct too🤔
