Hi all

So after removing the screen and all the electrics, I now have the scuttle sat on the workbench ready to prep for spraying. There’s obviously now a large ridge that the screen slotted into... have any of you guys done anything with this before you've fitted an aeroscreen? Maybe a rubber strip inside it to tidy up?
Thanks - Andy

When I built my Supercat, I took it for SVA with that slot empty with no washers and bungs in the holes where the wiper drives would. After SVA I put a very small coloured shaped aero screen on/in that fitted into this slot and stuck in with sealer and rubber trim and mounted the mirrors in the top holes where the supports would go.

I plan on putting a blanking plate between the scuttle and the aero screen.

Aero should have turned up today, sadly not.

Hi mate. Yeah I think so. Unfortunately the lower corners of the screen have cracked. I have kept the screen as a template incase Tiger don't sell them. The surround and mirrors are there although will need tidying up.

Thanks Graham. Did you prefer the Aeroscreen as it looks like you’ve gone back to the normal screen?

Yes I wanted the option to use the doors and roof if it was bad weather .
Its not a problem if your just going out for a run some where and its chuckin it down you can call it off but if its a show and you've paid for tickets you can get there in the dry .
Thats the main reason . I did find my head got knocked about at motorway speeds with the aero screen I used my half doors as well , they make a big difference too .
