Unlucky mate.

I replaced the screen on the Jaguar on Christmas Eve and by the 27th I needed another new one. Fortunately I did not have to pay for it.

How does that happen? I've got another bonnet to fit when I get around to it.

It happens from raising the bonnet too high. Just take extra care.

I understand. Think I'll put some old blankets there to protect the screen. Not looking forward to removing the heated water jets in one piece either.

Why do you prefer one without an antenna ?

Only the cabs had a antenna in the screen on 968's, all the tin tops have a roof antenna, I'm no expert on 944's, are they not the same

Neither am I but I think the square dash cars had antenna on the wing and oval dashes were in the windscreen.
