Default VB

Doug Jennings installed one in the Blue car in 2009 and the green car in 2013. They fit at those times using SS rubber. That's the most recent we've done with no problems. I've heard that they have shipped a windshield for series 1 & 2 Alpines a couple times. There's no way they would fit a Tiger windshield frame.

Default Windshield measurement

For those of you that have wondered about the measurement of the height of the windshield, measured in the center, from top to bottom, it should be 15 7/8"
This is from an old stock series 4/5 Alpine which fits our cars. Thank you Brett for your help.

Default Windshield

Just in case anybody needs to order a windshield, I ordered one from Victoria British recently. It was packaged up very well, it fits perfectly, no blemishes or distortion. No complaints.
Thanks to all that added to the thread.

Default VB windshield

I bought mine a year + ago and just got it installed last week. What a royal pain in the ars. Eventually got it in but the SS trim around doesn't fit so well any more. But the old windshield and molding were so bad that almost anything is better. I'll just not look at the trim too much and be glad it's in place. Grin and bear it...

Default Windshield

Sometimes if a windshield has been in and out a few times over the history of the car, the stainless trim can be bent a little by one of the installers, (this is the fourth time I have replaced this in my car over the 33 years I have owned it.) never fitting well there after. I had this problem. I had different trim put in and solved the ill fitting issue. My suspected piece was the longer lower piece, once replaced it looked great.
