Title: Windscreen required
Post by: GREENYORKIE on 27 January, 2016, 11:26:08 PM
Does anyone know of a source for windscreens for a Beta coupe, 1975, bonded type?

Have you tried suppliers like Pilkington, Autoglass or Triplex? Pilkington particularly advertise new glass for classic cars...although at a price I suspect.

There was a thread ages ago about Pilkington and Beta windscreens, probably on Betaboyz forum I forget. The upshot was that there was a question over the moulds they had, so would check carefully anything they supply.

I spoke to them at the NEC a couple of years ago, at the time they quoted me around 250 for a Windscreen for "Fay" so prices aren't bad, but I haven't heard anything about a problem with them.

A search of Pilkingtons site brings up a long list of Lancia windscreens with 2 code nos. for the Beta.They appear to deal thru windscreen fitters,in my case National windscreens.A phone call to the Glasgow centre revealed they are available,made to order and I was quoted around 300 fitted.However I need to be certain that I will get the correct size for my car, I know there are different sizes and the girl at National windscreens couldn't offer any info on sizing.Has anyone on the forum any experience of buying from Pilkington.
