Has any one tried fitting a td, brooklands windscreen and are there cheaper alternatives? Thanks… Dennis PMay 1, 2016 at 3:05 pm #267961billnpartsParticipant

Bunch of us have them. They’re a little spendy, but not so bad if you stay away from the Jaguar and Morgan-oriented sellers. And you can get away with just one.May 3, 2016 at 12:34 pm #267963
They’re on my Wish List at Moss Motors. They Look Hot! I hope to buy myself a pair for my Birthday in August. I figure that I’ll switch between the windscreens for spring and summer and the windshield to support the convertible top in the fall and winter.May 3, 2016 at 9:03 pm #267964
Cool but remember this: if you drive around with the Brooklands screens as the only thing between you and the oncoming wind, you’ll probably want at least a pair of wrap-around glasses on your face as well. Every year I forget at least once and end up on the highway doing 50 with monster pain and squinting and then one eye closed and then the other.May 4, 2016 at 12:30 am #267965
Great tip, thanks! How is the driving experience with regular sunglasses?May 4, 2016 at 11:11 am #267966Steve StruchenParticipant
Don’t forget the “Snoopy” helmet to go with the goggles.;)May 4, 2016 at 8:40 pm #267967
I wear glasses all the time. Mine are not enough for me to avoid the sting of the wind when driving open. I may just have sensitive eyes though.Steve: right: Proper RAF goggles and a righteous leather pilot’s helmet are the only way to fly. I might even buy a summer-weight one.May 5, 2016 at 4:27 am #267968
I know Moss has the goggles and leather helmet as well. They too are expensive!May 5, 2016 at 6:42 am #267969
They both are available more reasonably elsewhere.May 5, 2016 at 10:28 am #267970scubasteveParticipant
I found this page:
for inexpensive aviators caps and goggles.
There’s lots of other garb at this site, too. Sort of fun to go to…

Wow! That looks like a decent price on the “Snoopy hat.” And those split-lens “RAF style” googles are temptingly cheap.Temptingly!But I am hereby recommending to all that, if you plan to actually wear the goggles while driving, spring for the genuine Halcyons. They are three times the price, yeah. But they actually fit comfortably. Bikers swear by ’em.There are other, cheaper goggles that should also work. Look at motorcycle shops.May 6, 2016 at 9:55 am #267972scubasteveParticipant

I agree. I found two pairs of goggles;one clear lens, one dark, at my local Harley/Kawasaki/Honda cycle shop. Cost $70 for both. I’d rather use something purpose made.
The aviator caps on the other hand…

Thanks for the reference! I went to the site and I think I’ll spend some time there later on tonight. It looks like a classy site, I think I’ll need to sip brandy rather than beer. It looks like a great place for period clothing and stuff. Should be fun. I’ll hide the credit card before I get too tipsy! I’ve ridden that train before…
