    Looking for some ideas on windscreen replacement please - 1926 Rover 9 2 door. Have a screen with small part of one bottom corner broken off, so it should be fine as a pattern for a new one. Its flat, measures as 5.5mm, ;looks like toughened, edges are rough. The frame where the seal  goes is 10mm, and I have new rubbers from Clarks which are a good fit in the frame. I can get the old glass into the rubber with some difficulty, which seems correct, as we dont want it at all loose. My local glass shop can cut a new screen in 6mm, but dont know anything about windscreens . Can anybody recommend a glass outlet that does understand old flat windscreens and how they should fit into frames etc please?

    thanks

    I have used Stevens Glass at 375 Maroondah Highway for glass for the car I am restoring. I made a template out of plywood or nelson board/cardboard and they cut the galss and toughened it for me. Maybe you find them on your google machine or drive there.

    I had some done for the Morris (over 10 years ago) by "Windscreens O'Brian", Geelong Rd Brooklyn, but any of their outlets can organise this.
