    Double screen washer

    Hi does anybody have a clue where I can get an IVA legal double chrome screen washer please. The one at S&J doesn’t look IVA compliant with the radiuses Regards John

    Would this do as a temporary solution?

    There seems to be lots of choices although I'm not sure what criteria you have to meet. For example:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231912568...sAAOSwpoJXDmzI

    One thing worth noting, is that most of these are designed to mount through sheet metal. Our fibreglass cars are thick enough, there's not enough thread left to get the nut on. I counter-bored the holes for mine from underneath to make allowance for the nuts. A bit nervous doing it as if I were to counter-bore too far.....

    Unlikely you'll find a compliant chrome one.
    Your best bet is just to fit a complaint plastic one. Thats what most of us have done.

    I fitted S&J ones and they IVA are compliant. Unless they have changed in last 7 years

    On my Dax I fitted a single head double jet on centre line then after passing IVA I very carefully counter bored the under scuttle panel as mentioned to be able to get a couple of turns with the nut and washer to retain the chrome single post double jet that goes straight where you have already drilled...
