no mine is not tinted, I was just saying I found a company that makes the wiring kit complete with all the relays switch and cable for 125 pound. as I was having trouble to make it all my self for less.

OK, thanks. £125 seems like a lot, did that include the screen as well at that price? I expect you've already made purchase but if not try this:

http://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/product/836/category/210" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

you will need two for a twin circuit screen which will total approx. 38Amps.

So you'll need a relay (10 minute timer @ £11.72) for the screen,
cable (39Amp, approx. 6m @ £0.90 per meter),
a fuse/ holder (@£2.00) at the battery,
a momentary switch (£2-10),
connectors (£1) and your done.

I reckon about £40 all in or £50 for a two relay system.

If you are adding more electrics do it properly and have a good connection at the battery, this seems like a good idea:

Maybe overkill but would certainly future proof your bus and stop running all your electrics through the ignition switch.

It appears that the custom-made, electrically-heated, laminated front windscreens for classic cars, supplied by Ricky Evans Motorsport, might actually be produced by a small, specialist company called Tyneside Safety Glass.

On Freeview television-channel Quest, Tyneside Safety Glass and Ricky Evans Motorsport were featured during an episode of Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars, screened on Wednesday, 26th January 2022, pertaining to a second-hand, 1970s vintage, Alfa Romeo GTV, imported from South Africa, which needed its delaminating windscreen replacing. The programme briefly showed how the new, substitute, electrically-heated, laminated front windscreen was made at Tyneside Safety Glass.

If you manage to get a quotation for one or more at a reasonable price, I would be interested to know. Ideally, I would like one for my 1973 VW "1900" Type 2 Westfalia Continental and one for my 1974 Triumph Toledo 1300 "HL Special".
