SCUTELE COVER

Post by hat004 on Sat Apr 22, 2017 4:34 pm

Does anyone know if it is possible to get a cover for the area between the lower windscreen and the bonnet. I am fed up with cleaning out this area when my van is parked on site. When there are trees there are always bits dropping off them and filling this area up!

Siverscreens do a "Bonnet Extender" that might work? http://www.silverscreens.co.uk/Bonnet%20Extender.html

I prefer Silverscreens but Taylormade have a skirt as standard.

My Taylormade long version screen has survived 7 winters, cleaned all the winter mould off last week, still in good order.

I extended my Silver Screens, by cutting into a silver insulated screen cover, ( is used in frost / snow ) that you can buy from any garage / cheap stores, I machined  it onto  the bottom of the Silver Screens, cut to fit, the elastic straps  that were suppose to fix it to the car windscreen, I kept them on, and they hook under the wheel arch, , and hold extended cover down in windy weather, as they are plastic do not damage the body of the van, my scuttle is kept clean and leaf / debris free, an easy way without buying another full Silver Screen. they still fit into the original Silver Screens bag.

I'm not sure how the Warwick is finished off there but Ford did a right clever "trick" on the Transit. First of all they made the windscreen appear to be fitted in that good old fashioned method using a rubber mount....but it's not..it's bonded! The next trick came by fitting plastic trim over the scuttle to "pretty" it up. That leaves a nice gap for lots of leaves and crud to gather behind and start rusting away the scuttle. The first many owners know about it is when needing a screen replacement and end up having to get a new scuttle section welded in before the new screen can be fitted!

So if your van is like that, whip it off and spray a liberal coating of waxoyl or similar on the scuttle. If it's not......count your blessings!!  smile!
