As above,

Mine is in pretty bad shape and the glass is siliconed in so is reluctant to come out.

I'd ideally like a set in black with the glass already in or a set in bare ally with the glass loose so I can get it powder coated.

You can get silicon disolver from screwfix.

Not cheap but cheaper than replacing the glass!

Giles,

I have tried this very product. It seems to dissolve what is visible but does not touch the seal inside the channel between the ally and the glass. At a tenner a tube it's getting expensive!

Thanks for the tip.

Hi I've got one in the garage that came with the car when I bought it. I have an aero screen fitted but it uses the '6' supports. To be honest I've never had the screen out of the box but I will have a look for you tonight and get back to you.

Chris,

Many thanks. Do you have the supports as well or just screen & surround?

I used a thin Carp Trace wire like this to seperate the scuttle from the body tub as it was Sikaflexed down. I might give that a try.
