Default Convertible!

Yes summer is coming in the UK, should I leave this as is in the hopes of a dry summer or has a Uk member got a rear screen stashed away that they would be prepared to sell to my insurance company/ National Winscreens?

Unintended mod was we believe the result of a unintended act of vandalism as there was a fist sized stone nearby in an area where there was no other. Vehicle parked in a secure compound.:sad


Please PM if you can assist.

Fun fact: sometimes rear hatch glass spontaneously explodes.

Sucks either way.

A fortnight ago I thought I was going to need a new front end and Windscreen when a set of traffic lights were demolished by an out of control car just in front of me. At least this time I was not in the car, otherwise I could get a bit of a complex.

Thank you for the comments. Currently taking comfort from a glass of red wine whilst pondering if the glass will break!

If it were my car I'd be tempted to try Lexan plastic or equivalent...

could get one for less than half that, but the shipping is going to be nearly impossible with glass in the mix and shipping charges. by the time he paid for it, probably be $800, and getting it in one piece would be a gamble.

I know the Miata guys used Lexan... Does it all 'scratch, crack and yellow'? Maybe tinted?

Trawl e-bay, occasionally UK breakers have a car in, they may have the rear hatch undamaged.. You will have to go and get it I expect.

You can certainly order a new one from Honda at 400. Insurance should help.

Darn, I thought this was a thread about cutting one into a convertible. Sorry for your bad luck, though, Had a golf ball take mine out a few years ago.
