    Some works of art posted here, but i dont really understand why.
    if you need a heater then turn it on, via a simple toggle switch
    if you dont, turn it off - the blower that is.

    Your feet will get hot from the headers, so perhaps cool air vented into the footwell maybe useful in the summer. But why make things so complicated?

    Anyone fitted Brasscraft's heated windscreen?

    Just wondering if one of those would negate the need for a demist setting plus you could send all the heat to the footwells for those autumn/winter drives?

    Cheers

    Hi Guys, I have found the best way of managing the temp in the footwells is to insulate the area and reverse flow the heater blower. Sucks in hot air in the winter and removes it in the summer..Cheers Clive

    I now have a heated screen .. sitting in a box on the spare bed but I believe that is true - you don't need a blower for demisting with one fitted.

    I believe that with an electrically heated screen you don't need a heater or demist vents.

    - which would actually be visually more authentic, as no 427S/C ever had a heater or demist.

    How much does he charge for the heated screens. When I spoke to him about them early last year he hadn't started to stock/sell them so wasn't sure how much they were going to be?

    Presumably it's got the 'crisscross wire mesh' running through it - how visible is it?
    I have a heated screen on my daily and most of the time I don't notice it, but when the sun is in the right/wrong position it does affect the vision a bit.

    Cheers

    I just went and got the receipt - you're looking at basically a grand plus VAT.. which is rather expensive.

    As for the heater element - it's slightly more visible than the element was in my Ranger, maybe; that might just be because I'm staring at it up close, though, rather than from 3' away as I would in a car. There are also the two connections that you have to find a way to 'hide'; I'll take a picture to explain..

    Hi Aaron, l was the first he done. I had the glass shipped directly to him, but I'm pretty sure the wires come out of the bottom near the posts. Yours look like they come out from the rubber inside? The price was about the same.
