    WANTED:  ANY fold down windscreen brackets that would work on my London Roadster.  Will modify any brackets if needed.

    I realize now just how dumb it was to pose such a question!  So, keeping busy during the quarantine, I came up with my own solution for my London Roaster.  I made a Teak wood bracket trimmed with polished stainless steel hardware.  Will post photos as soon as I figure out how.

    Wow! I do want to see them.

    To post a photo, first take two or three deep breaths. Steady your mind. Get your heart rate under control.

    Now direct your cursor to the upper right of the screen where your own name is. Hover there and you’ll see a drop down menu.

    The bottom thing on the menu is “media.” Hover there and you’ll get a pop-out menu reading “Albums” “Photos” and “Videos.”

    Click on “photos.”

    That will bring you to another page (don’t worry, you can still get back to where you were posting) with any pics you’ve already uploaded, and also an option to “UPLOAD.”

    Click that.

    A box will open, into which you can drag photos from your own computer. You can also select them by hitting the other button and navigating to the folder where you keep pics. Click on the pictures you want to upload, or drag them into the box. They will upload. After a few seconds or a minute they’ll appear in a grid.

    Click on one.

    It will open bigger. NOW Right-click on the photo. You’ll get yet another drop-down. Choose “Copy Image Address”

    Now go to the left upper corner of your browser and hit the “back” arrow a couple times until you’re returned to the post you were writing that you want to insert the photo into. See? The words are still there waiting patiently.

    Now (Jesus, I know, this is insane. Bear with me here) look at the gray bar running along the top of the text box into which you were typing. There’s a smily face at the far left, then a and etc. all the way across, the second from the farthest thing on the right looks like a square with a mountain and a dot in it. Click that.

    A box will open that says “Insert/edit image.” You’re almost home.

    Paste (control V) that “image address” you grabbed a couple steps ago. Then hit return, et voila!

    So simple even an MIT grad student can do it, given a few tries.

    (And hardly more difficult than making a windshield fold-down mechanism from scratch out of teak wood).

    Very nice!  Good solution since MGTD brackets would not work.

    Interesting. It looks like you totally eliminated the wiper system as there are no wiper arm posts visible. As these cars are seldom driven in the rain, I approve. Nicely done.

    I’d like to see more photos of this car. It looks like you’ve created the illusion of a center folding hood also.
