Hello
I am currently building a ZS 180 for the Britcar Series and have enquired about heated front screens. Is anyone interested in having one as I can get them made but the order is 10 minimum. The cost would be around £190 and this is for the screen only. Any switches or wiring would be extra.

I am happy to have 3 so I am looking for 7 others to buy one.

Alternatively, if anyone knows of any for sale else where, please let me know.

Thanks

Simon

Patent runs out on their design this or next year I think. Interesting idea, I'm not in any position to express interest in it though :(

Interesting - what are the options on tinting etc.

Wiring shouldn't be too difficult, they have info on the website.

These will be made to order so tints will be possible. As for spec, its for motorsport so they will be as good if not better. All screens are laminated for instance. The ones on the ZR are very good quality.

Its going to be fairly mild as far as the engine is concerned. About 225 BHP with exhaust, cams, induction and standard ecu chipped. The idea is to be reliable and as many standard parts as possible to keep costs down. I hope to get it some where near 950kg.
The ZR with the 1800 in it was around 910kg.
I am having the shell dipped to remove all the crap from it. That should help alot.

I might well be interested in one.

It would be worth posting on the mgzs.co.uk and zs central to help get the numbers up
