Hi
Last year I had a windscreen (sundym glass in my case) for my Interceptor delivered to my restorer in Grantown upon Spey (Scotland) by National Windscreens, cost around £370.00 and took a week. The windscreens are directly available from Pilkingtons Glass.
They deliver using their specialist vans and their insurance cover against breakage.

Regards

All the main windscreen suppliers stock the tinted Pilkington one. Clear might be harder to source. You will also need a new rubber. Even if the old rubber looks OK they usually fall apart once removed.

Your local screen suppliers may say that clear screens are not available, but don't be fobbed off with an imported copy tinted screen if you want a clear one. As Grant says, call Pilkington as they are available and its not something you can change your mind about later.

There's a family-owned car glass business (since 1970) in Finland, Kuttilan Autolasi, which can produce Interceptor windscreen, clear or tinted, from the molds in about a week and they can ship it anywhere in the wooden crate. I don't know the price. I can make some inquiries, if you are interested.
