Glass rear screen?

Any of you guys know if a glass rear screen is available as opposed to perspex? My rear screen is warped, so before I fit one, I'd like to make it glass if possible.

Thanks,

I recently bought one from Tonado \ Andy. Other than the notable added weight when raising and lowering the rear clip it's really nice and I am very happy I installed it. I really was annoyed by the warping of the plexi.

My other alternative was to seek out thicker and\or higher quality plexi or lexan. The originals I see at the vintage racing don't seem have warpage issues. One owner suggested Aircraft Windshield of California.

We have high temp plastic which will not warp and also glass rear windows available.

Thanks

I also got my rear screen and fitting kit from Andy at Tornado. It is a good fit in the rebate of my KVA. It sits a bit proud, compared to the wobbly old battle-scarred plexiglass sheet I've taken off, but it still looks much better.

Graham-

With minimal effort I was able to get a rear screen from RF to fit quite well. It involved minor work around the opening but very straightforward.

I'd bet they sell/ship them.
 
The additional weight of a glass rear screen is not an issue IMHO. My glass screen was pretty light - and I get a good view to the rear over the top of the throttle bodies in my interior rear view mirror.

Hi there Tony....
Melted the rear screen in my old KVA with a wide rear end...... I saw your post above and dont want to have to repaint my rear lid so was wondering just how good the Tornado glass fit was for your KVA.....??.....was yours a wide tail car....??...not sue if the glass size differs, most likely not I guess....
Any assistance much appreciated.

Kind regards


Marcus
