Starting full restoration of 1978 Spitfire 1500 and would like to replace original clear laminated version with a top tinted version. Believe in the day they were green tint across the top, often referred to as "Sundym" type, I believe. Anything considered, or advice would be handy.

Thanks all for the quick replies already. I am aware that Rimmers/Moss Europe have tinted screens on their website, but the pictures seem like the whole windscreen is a slight green tint! Is that legal, or very nice to look through?

I remember seeing quite a few top tinted green examples back in the day, available as an optional extra. This is the sort of thing I am interested in - clear screen with a sun shade band across the top of the screen. They seemed to be known as "Sundym" versions. I have scratched around various classic companies and also current commercial suppliers with no joy, other than a quotes for a one off at prohibitive cost.

As I am not very tall, a band like that would not be an issue for me!

I've got them on all three cars and didn't pay a penny for them. OK, I have done 12 Round Britain Reliability Runs, which cost a fair bit...
