Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
My melos has its windscreen frame broken and I have to replace it. Of course, it's difficult impossible to find a spare one in France but i may have found one in UK. The problem : the windscreen frame is for a phaeton, not a melos.
My question : do you know if it will work ? Are they different ?
The width is 93 cm at the windscreen's bottom, where it 'meets' the body. Could somebody check on a Phaeton the measure ?
Thanks for all your help !
You can get a near enough correct size alloy channel, and with care and know how can bend it to the right shape, or find a metal worker to do it. My B+ is 890mm. where it joins the scuttle and goes out to approx 910 at the ends.
Thanks for your answers. So I will try with the phaeton's one as it is quite close to the melos' one.
I have already checked with a metal worker but he was unable to do exactly the same. The U channel was a bit too large (making difficult to find a rubber later) and the thickness (3 mm in aluminium) prevent him from bending the U in the final form. so, that's why i'm looking for a spare one :-)
Thanks for your help,
As soon as my melos will be complete, I will post new photos
