What windscreen for a minus?
Posted 16 February 2005 - 01:58 AM
I am looking at buying a heated front windscreen for my mini minus, but I am not sure what mark window my mini minus has? and if it matters?
I was assuming they were all the same until I went on www.heatedwindscreen.com, because they have listed rover mini, and austin morris mini mk1 and mk2 as three different items.
Will any mark windscreen fit any car?
Hope someone can shed some light,

Do you know a where can get one with a pre glued mirror boss?
All mini windscreens are the same size. The only difference is colour and whether it has a mirror boss pre-glued to it.

A Firm called Stewart & Arden made the original mini sprints (which has the roof chop), and a firm called Hawk cars made the moulds and fibreglass shells from a Stewart & Arden metal original, they called it the 'Hawk Mini sprint'. A Mini Minus is a whole other kettle of fish:
Minus Cars LTD removed about 4 inches from a mini shell, but all below the windows and so managed to retain the standard size windows, and everthing else for that matter. Then made a mould and produced fibreglass shells from it.
I just wondered if there was a difference in window sizes through-out the different standard marks of mini's... and if so, which one the minus used, as they were built in the seventies so could be mark 1 or 2.
Minus Cars also did a mid engine rear wheel drive version. I'd really like to get hold of one of them. I want to adapt one for a cossie 4x4 set up
