just thinking ahead for when I get Duffy on the road.
Do I need a heated rear window? I have searched but have been unable to find one of the period stick on kits. The other thing is as the car will only be used in summer months will an HRW be needed? It may be useful in the event of wet weather misty the rear window.

I'm now considering a second hand Mini rear window.
Duffy is a '65 Elf, my question is, have the window sizes increased over the years? Obviously I don't want to buy a window if it won't fit!
I seem to remember the window being enlarged at some time during the life of the Mini.

I retained the heated rear window, however, never connected up the power to it. I fitted a new loom and for some reason either forgot or just decided not to. I only use mine mainly in the summer, or sometimes in winter but always when its dry :)

 

Its never bothered me. I think fitting a front one would be beneficial though as the demisters are not great, but screen small enough to wipe over if you ever needed to with a rag or hat or something!
