Windscreen Srip Query

PostPost by: AlanG » Thu Dec 12, 2019 10:00 pm

Just wondered if someone could tell me if the ends of the chrome plastic windscreen strip should be at the top or bottom of the screen on a Sprint and were finishing clips used to cover them?
Thanks
Alan.

When replacing the strip, cut it a bit long as it will shrink over time.

If you want cover the join in the plastic locking strip you can use a little clip from a classic mini. :wink: :wink:
