Lupo Heated windscreen


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Ive spoken to Ricky evans motorsport about getting a heated windscreen for my rally car.

He can do it but needs a minimum order of 5.

they would be 225 +vat

Is there any interest?

 

Cheers

It's a cracking idea but the way the weather is going few occasions to use it, I don't think I cleared ice off the screen more than half a dozen times this year, different for a Rally Car I know😍

If you could get it any cheaper, say £200 incl vat, then count me in. They are a luxury item though. Regular screens are £120 fitted. One of my SDIs has a crack in the screen so will need replacing soon. And it was brand new a year ago (not on insurance). Trouble is, if we swapped the screen on insurance, the broker will insist you use their standard supplier. If there was a way to 'spin' it so upon replacement, they'd need to supply the heated one, then that'd work out sweet. Dunno how though, as it'd have to be notified as a non standard item before claiming, and would need to be on the policy already. Modifications: heated windscreen.

I'm guessing you are ditching the dash and vent system? - you are really going for weight loss

Yes no heater in it, reduces risk of boiling fluid in the cabin also

Don't block the heater pipe or you'll get a hot spot in the head. It's gotta circulate...

one step ahead of you

How about Water-less coolant? - doesn't expand, probably be able to get away with a smaller (read lighter) rad fan https://www.evanscoolant.com/how-it-works/

And rain-x anti mist works pretty well

already got the evans coolant in it now, may put a smaller heater in will see how i get on

Never tried waterless coolant. I'm interested to know if it's worth the money. May extend water pump life...?

put it this way, at the point the rad fan kicks in (approx. 90 degrees) i can confidently open the expansion tank cap
