Pilkington has a contact somewhere on the Web, identifies as for Classics and does answer inquiries regarding Esprit. May or may not have stock.

They can still provide Stevens windscreens?  Please verify.

 

Last I heard Pilkington had discontinued producing their line of  'classic' 'screens.  Owners in the USA previously could get them from Ohio.

  • General Inquiries: Phone +1 800-282-1986, Fax +1 253-645-4077, Email: [email protected]

 

If they are doing sporadic batches it would would be great! (The more inquires, the better)

Yes they will make them as needed. Price is not too bad at $550-600 pounds depending on colour and tint but its the price of shipping from the UK that I cant stomach.

I did see a 'Wheeler Dealers' episode from US based series where they took a damaged windscreen to a US factory where they then 3d scanned it, found a similar match from a vast array of templates in stock from numerous car manufacturers in their database, and then cut the nearest match to an exact size.

Being so flat, I'd imagine you have a good chance of finding a match.

If I can find the episode link I'll send it to you - but someone may better remember the company details? 

here's a link with. more details:

Taking this inventive approach, one might expect the '80's Ford Aerostar van to come up close.
