Re: windscreen

I would be pretty sure those 2 cars use the same windscreen.
I am in the process of putting a 'new' windscreen in a Pug 106, first time I've done this, after much research, mainly on YouTube... Luckily our local scrappy doesn't seem to mind if you break a screen on removal (only 1 other car in there with a screen removed, several broken through lifting cars with a forklift) as I finally managed to get one out whole, 3rd time lucky.. Used a tool similar to this, although I've been told wire (for which you need an assistant) is more reliable. Also got adhesive stuff off ebay , 8/tube.
I'm quite apprehensive about doing this, although seeing the screen I removed makes me feel better, it had a huge amount of glue along the bottom and only a strip 3-4mm wide along the top.. surely I as a novice can do better than that?
Incidentally the scrappy charged me 15 for the screen - perhaps he was watching me, and the normal price is a fiver..
