Template and local glass co is the way to go but you need 4mm laminated if you can get it otherwise any thicker is very difficult to get into the frame.

I've had a couple of screens cut at a local glaziers in 6mm laminate. They don't fit with the standard black screen rubber, so I just use silicon. cost is usually £30-£50 (Mine's more expensive due to being bigger) HTH Nick

Agree with Nicko, I had a laminate screen cut (6mm laminate) cost £35, used black silicon to seal in the frame.

If you want the original toughened screen, i've got one in the garage you can have.

 

Drop me a PM if you want it

Thanks for all the replies. It would appear that a laminate replacement is the preferred option.

 

Al, if you have an original one going spare how much do you want for it? At least I can use this as a template. Please sent me a PM.

 

Thanks again.

Like Nick and Al, my screen is 6mm laminate.

 

An alternative to silicon, I got some 1mm rubber strip off of ebay for about a fiver. Fits a treat, with the help of a little vasoline, and allows you to dismantle easily.

      Hi, I bought an old 2b with sliding pillar partially built - 2 years ago. Lots and lots done, basically rebuilding the entire car, bit of an engineering project!! and we have just completed a GBS wishbone suspension rebuild on the front and replaced the damn awful pillar suspension! The car currently has a mg metro steering rack on that we have removed. I want to go to a ford rack to match the sierra track rod ends and extenders we now have. Would a mk2 escort match or what have other members fitted? Any help would be appreciated

      Well its come to that time when I have made the decision to sell my 2B.

      So here goes:

      Its a Robin Hood 2B with a 2L Pinto engine with an injection head.

      It Has ZX9R bike carbs on a Danst Engineering Manifold

      Type 9 5speed gearbox and sierra rear end.

      Martin Keenan Custom built Silencer - giving it a sweet noise and put a smile on your face each time you start it

      It has Full weather gear that fits

      Has a set of 5 Uniroyal Rain sport 3 tyres that have done around 400 miles since fitted last year ago.

      There are numerous other spares that will be sold with the kit. These include a Front Geometry kit purchase form GBS for the vehicle but never fitted, A brand new set of GAZ shocks that are still in their boxes.


      The paint on the body is flaking in a few places, but its superficial, just a rub down, some primer and a respray and it will be as good as new

      The log book is correct and its registered as a Robin hood 2B
      Its MOT'd until April 2018. Its covered 16,708miles
      I'm looking for £3995

      I'm located in Crawley - will answer all questions and anyone who wants to view the kit with an eye to buy is welcome

      Picture of the kit are here:
