    I went to threeways glass in Eastbourne with a template for the size of glass I wanted for the rear screen. I think they actually charged me £8 for toughened .

    Wipers on Nem and Nena are easily sourced at a cost - see pic for codes, £180 all in
    Which angle for the wiper motor did you opt for, 80 degrees?

    ...remember buying that when it was first issued; still have that one along with a few others. Very nostalgic! `¬)

    If you do go the route of any Sterling parts, keep us up to date; I enquired about body panels and hinges several years ago - it was the shipping costs that made it impossible for me.

    Haha! Me too!! .... and unaware of everything I have in my Nova memorabilia, the family got me another copy last Christmas. It's the thought that counts though

    I think it is set on 80, it is easy to change in situ
