    Windshield Aftermarket

    Anyone ever see one of these? Are they worth anything or should I just scrap it. I should have got a better picture there is even a wiper blade mounted on cowl with a cable to operate it.

    That is an original aeroscreen - early cars came with mounting holes for them.

    Do not scrap it, definitely worth $omething to $omeone.

    The usual vendors sell a 'Brooklands' version that can be added to cars but the STC factory version is rarer and more desirable.

    Never saw one with a wiper - that is strange.

    I believe the design was such that you could even install the windscreen with the aeroscreens still in place.

    On the TR2 they were very specialized chromed bronze bolts with a domed hex head on them...and not a standard thread. I don't know it that changed later or not.

    Yeah you should mail that out to me. It will help your Karma. Better to give. I saw an original sell on evilbay maybe 5 years ago, and I think for 1,100 bucks—but it was Like NOS nice and there were both sides.

    I am going to sell as its not for me. Trying to do so research since it does have some value. It does have a crack in glass which will hurt value I know.

    Well, it is a bit rough but I think you have the most valuable bits... the lower frame and the 2 mounts.

    That little wiper is a hoot. I had occasion to drive mine in a downpour with just an Aeroscreen in place - not sure that a wiper would have been of any use.

    The wiper is not really connected, is it? It looks like it is just laying sideways, unconnected to the aero screen. Tony, no, I don’t have a source. I could not find originals, so had mine re-chromed. I think if you order from the big 3 they send a domed philips head bolt.
