I've queried this with Moss and they're checking to see if there's a known difficulty, but I'm wondering if anyone else has fitted Moss screens and found the same problem?
One thing I can see though is that the top strip you have fitted doesnt have sufficient bend/curve. This enables you to force the 2 vertical (almost) pieces closer to the corners. It will not be perfect and there is little allowance to shift anything closer because of the existing holes in the frame. Making/having new frames makes it a little easier to bridge the difference.
Cutting the material afterwards was pretty tricky with only one go at it too. I have 2 sets to do; the 2nd set I know how to do better next time. I think one corner of the 4 strips I had to squeeze the metal to crimp the end sufficiently to hang on to the stud because the lengths aren't really long enough
Thanks for the feed back - I'm obviously not the only one to have a problem. Your point re the curve on the top strip is well taken but as you point out, using the original frames leaves little room for adjustment.bloodysalmon wrote: ↑Thu May 14, 2020 11:24 am.....One thing I can see though is that the top strip you have fitted doesnt have sufficient bend/curve.

When I queried with Moss the lack of the original trim where the ends had to be mitred, I was told someone had scarpered with the material and all the manufacturing fixtures! I'm wondering if a trim section from another car - MGB body trim or TR6 sill trim might be a source of raw material. The mitre corner pieces would have to be hand made but that wouldn't be too difficult and one would surely end up with a neater job
Still, I guess nobody ever fits the side screens anyway...
i tried to make a drawing from the sidescreens with freecad, so everybody has the original measurment
My TA has replica sidescreens and they doesn t look good
no strip set.
i also think that the measurment is not exactly
so i asked for correction of my drawing,
i havent bougt the strip set because it is really expensive for such a little part of metal and won t fit exactly, so spent a lot of money and it doesn t fit.
i am looking for a cheaper way to make a strip set what will fit to my car

print it take a pencil and give me your measurment, take a picture and load it up here and i will make a good grawing for all
i think really easy to weld it for a little money
English better every day ;-)
