Looking great - glad to hear you've had a bit of luck with the metal of the screen surrounds. It's a fascinating exercise in luck seeing which bits have gone and which are sound, although front footwell corners never seem to survive!

A local company quoted me £200 to supply and fit a front screen - I've used them before for classic cars and they're very good. Wallothnesch can supply a screen for around £200 from Germany.

Don't forget to put the chrome trim into the rubber BEFORE fitting the screen. It is impossible to fit it afterwards!
They are ALWAYS rustier than you thought!!!!!!
