3000 windscreen
« on: February 23, 2017, 01:59:46 PM »
 hello, I am brand new to the site, so hello. Secondly I have just purchased a pilgrim 3000- does anyone know of a potential windscreen source? I have been looking for a few days and coming up blank!  :(

Did they not use an original one, the 100 is off a BN1, have you got the pillars?

Although I have a 3000 I'm probably not going to be much help but have you tried Pilgrim themselves?

Simon, when he sees this post may well have some more info.

Hope you get sorted soon.

I have spoken to Pilgrim, no joy there, I also spoke to AH Spares, they say their screen is no good as the 3000 is 3 inches wider than a BN1-  Does anyone have the measurements between the pillars at the bottom? Thank you all who have replied!

V sorry for long delay in responding.  The dimension (between pillars at the bottom) is approx. 1215mm (on my 3000).

Are you planning on going to Stoneleigh where I'm sure there will be at least one 3000 there? - I'm planning on going!

i spoke with pilgrim at stonleigh last year.they said they "might"have one left.seems its long gone.the screens have  rac windscreens printed in the corner.they are made specifically for the car and can be prone to stress cracking(ill be on no3 if it fails the mot).not the news you wanted to hear but your insurance maybe able to helpif yourglass is covered

just read your other post.is your car registered yet?if not then you will have to go through iva which means you will have to get a new "e" marked screen made (pilkingtons can do this at a price )the original glass is only kite marked and will not pass iva.
 hopefully you can make it to stonleigh and we can get you sorted

Hello- thank you Simon and Roger, the car is not registered yet, so yes, it will be the IVA- I was considering doing the IVA without the windscreen though!  I am working on the chassis at the moment and running gear, the body is in a friends garage. I have built a Sumo before- any pictures of where and how the screen pillars are mounted would be a bonus. Also door and bonnet hingers, I have a box of rusty hinges, a picture of these mountings would be very useful.
What day/s will you be at Stoneleigh?

Thanks
Hans

I'm planning on being at Stoneleigh only on Sunday though but echo what Simon has said - we'll do our best to help you & will look out some other photos for you.

I'm in the middle of sending some re the seatbelt mounting.

If the body is the same size as the 100 then a 100/4 screen should fit, so ah should be able to help just the cost££££
