Elan S2 front windscreen

PostPost by: melfab1 » Tue Aug 08, 2023 10:39 pm

Hi all,
Can anyone advise me where I can buy a front windscreen (preferably heated) for an 1965 S2 Elan.
I am in Melbourne Australia.

Bob, I’ve bought heated screens in from UK for my S1 and S2’s. I think you can purchase them from TTR as well.
You need to have alternator fitted.
Drop me a PM and I’ll find details of the company I purchased directly from.

"To avoid disappointment", check very carefully whether you have a S1 screen frame (one bolt per side) or a S2 frame (two bolts on each side) as the two screens and frames are different and an S2 (depending on its chassis number) could have either.

I have already posted on this subject and you should be able to find it. NB: I am in France and have a Pilkington S1 heated screen for my S2. This was purchased in GB from Sue Miller with the specific help of Pilkington Classic.

I have not yet fitted it, but the S2 certainly did not fit, it was way out !

Good luck!

Rick Evans Motorsport supplies heated winbscreens for Elans, agree with previous comment on making sure you order the correct screen, luckily I only live a few miles from them and was able to easily swop the one that did not fit for another.
