few jobs to tackle over the coming weeks before the weather turns. Get the diesel heater installed and the heated screens in - although I'm particularly nervous about installing the front screen!
With the front screen, just get a fitter to do it, one that does it for a living every day. I remember installing a screen and windows in mine with three mates, luckily one used to do it years ago but did know how to do it, took us about an hour or so to do the whole van, and that includes loads of mucking about and Micky taking. Had a new laminated screen put in a couple of years back after fixing up around the aperture and this guy did it on his own in less than twenty five minutes, great job too.

Ozziedog,,,,,,,there’s certain jobs,,,,,,,, :)

Great idea. I’m ok with fitting the rear window but I’ll get someone in to do the front. 👍

If you’re getting them in to do the front screen , I’d get them to do both at the same time and put yourself in charge of getting them a nice clear area to do their thing. As soon as they’re on site , flip the kettle on, when you hear a load of slapping twenty minutes later then that’ll be when you pour the coffee and open the choccy bickies. :)

Is there anyone recommended on the forum that does screen fitting?
Who really knows these buses?
