plastic +2 windscreen trim

PostPost by: LaikaTheDog » Tue Jun 13, 2017 7:51 am

for a plus 2
last year a windscreen company tried to fit a new screen to my +2. they came with a new roll of the plastic trim that has the silver sheet inside to make it look shiny.

they fitted the screen so badly that it lifted out of the body !

i then refitted the screen myself with a new trim

What I have to offer is the old screen trim that has been fitted and removed.

it is NOT good enough to reuse, but as you need to practice warming and twisting the trim to make it fit your glass... I am offering a sacrificial trim to practice with !

yours for free if you want to pickup or for the price of postage

HI Laika the Dog

Way back in the earlier ninety's I refitted my screen using convention screen rubber with a chrome filler strip, its still good today, although not original. In those days the replacement trim was pretty poor and had a blue tint to the plastic and the infill was aluminium and not chrome finish.

Is the trim today a better prospect than it was for me, can you post a photo please
