Windscreens from Pilkingtons

Post by toomanysabres » Thu Jun 23, 2016 12:19 pm

I enquired from their classic repro dept whether they had the mould for the big rear screen of a Sabre/Sabra GT. Unfortunately not listed but they have come back to me with the following list of available Reliant screens they can do. Might be of use to someone.

Strange - I thought they produced both GTE screens, SE5/5a and 6 on?

I'm guessing that's a SE6-on one listed?

If that is the Se6-on one, maybe their list isn't smart enough to pick up the cross-references on the others, but you might find an Se5/5a one listed as Lotus Elan +2 or Ford Consul Capri?

Good thought and its the Coupe as well of course. Although original Coupe was toughened not laminated.
