hi i dont know if anyone`s read my project yet (2l 8v mk1 golf) baisicly its being done up as a track car (much to fat boy`s dissaproval) and the windscreen`s nackerd its all cracked and needs replacing.

i was wondering if anyone`s got a perxpex or a polycarbonate windscreen or has any feedback on them- surely they cant be thar diferent from normal windscreens?

also does anyone know where to source them and how much roughly they are?

all comments welcomed.

I dont think i have ever seen a non laminated glass front screen, I think there would be safety issues with that!

not really, at the end of the day the only reason i can hink of they use glass in everyday cars is for its surface hardness- itl last ages without bieng marked by wipers etc . polycarbonate is more shock resistant and if it was to fracture it wouldnt frost over etc.

and who said racing was safe Wink

FIA will not allow you to use perspex as a ffront screen. Msa has a blue book with all regulations for track....... have a look at it.
