PLEASE SEE MORE RECENT THREAD FOR UP TO DATE CORRECT PRICING

Hi All

As some may know my Dad is from ACW Motorsport Plastics, who manufacture and supply polycarbonate windows for many makes and models of cars.

I have spoken to him, and I would like to offer you as a TMF member a 15% discount on all Classic Mini related products.

We currently have the following for classic Mini's:

  • Mk1: 2-Piece Sliding Door Windows
  • Mk1: Rear Quarter Windows to fit in Chrome Surround
  • Mk3+:Door windows with sliders both sides
  • Mk3+: Rear Quarters to fit into fixed rubbers
  • Mk3+: Rear Quarters to fit in opening Chrome Surrounds
  • Mk3+: Rear Quarters to be riveted to the bodywork
  • Mk3+: Rear Window to fit into rubber
  • Mini Pickup Rear Window
Please note: All sliders now have clear polycarbonate nuts and bolts, not white nylon as pictured
Attached File  acw1.jpg   58.82K   128 downloads

A full kit consists of 2 front door windows both with sliders (Mk3+) , 2 rear quarters of your choice and 1 rear window in 4mm clear polycarbonate -
RRP £159.99
With Discount £135.99

For more prices please PM me and I'll get back to you asap.

Because the windows cannot be fitted onto the standard window winder mechanism, we offer 3 different types of slider to go into the window:
  • 4 x small square hole
  • 1x large round hole
  • 1x large square hole
If you use the car on and off road, the 4-hole option allows you to have sliders in the window but with holes that are not big enough to put a hand through, which makes it safer than the large holes, more popular in race only cars.

Postage and Packaging is priced at £20.00, which the discount does not apply to. This is UK Mainland only, but we can deliver worldwide.


Cheers
Dan

Hi
Lexan is a brand of polycarbonate, the same as hoover is a vaccuum cleaner. It is no stronger/weaker than the polycarbonate we use, which is Marlon FSX. As for the anti-scratch, you can get a special type of 'Marguard' Lexan which has a hard coating to help reduce scratching, but unfortunately the price is much more hence why we don't currently supply it.

We do stock standard Lexan polycarbonate, and if you would like the windows manufactured from this then that is no problem. As said before though, the quality of the materials are the same. We can do the full kit in Lexan for £149.99 + P&P.

A full kit consists of 2 front door windows both with sliders (Mk3+) , 2 rear quarters of your choice and 1 rear window in 4mm clear polycarbonate -
RRP £159.99
With Discount £135.99


The discount shown above is for 4mm clear polycarbonate windows. We can supply rear quarters and a rear window in bronze tint for an extra £20.00. We only supply clear front windows, as tinted front windows are not road legal, and there are also many race specifications that do not allow front windows to be tinted.

All of the windows are flat. All Mini side windows are flat from factory anyway, but the rear is flexible enough to be fitted from a flat polycarb screen.

Cheers
Dan :lol:

Hi
The RRP for the sliding windows are £59.99 for the set (to do both sides), so with the TMF discount it would be £50.99, + P&P
PM me if you'd like to go ahead and order, and I'll pass it onto my Dad.
Cheers
Dan :thumbsup:

Do you do these in a smoke or grey tint for the rear three windows, i know you cant do tints for the front windows.
If not what other tints can you do, other than bronze, and do you have any pictures of the bronze tint?

Thanks

Hi
We currently do just bronze tint, but clear polycarb windows can be tinted the same as glass, with film.

The top 2 pictures are both bronze tint rears, and the very bottom photo gives a good idea of the difference between clear and bronze:
