    there are various ways to cut curved glass.... you'll have to find an laminated one to start with, then it's either a good glass-smith, or a guide/mask and water jet or sand blaster.... no doubt there's other methods too!

    You really need to find a screen with the EC 43r markings as well (and dont remove them during the chop!) this will safeguard you if you ever get caught for IVA.

    Depends if it a laminate or toughened. Laminated can be cut but not toughened.

    That's a lot of work for 3"

    I understand that they're cut down in 1" strips so only three runs at it. lol probably a walk in the park for an expert.

    But rear screen is toughened - go old school and lean it forward!?

    I was watching a program last year about a company that makes the riot vans for the Police, and was quite astounded to learn that they remove the glass windscreen and replace it with a perspex one. I always thought it was ileagal to have a perspex screen but obviously not if the old bill can use it. It would be a hell of a lot easier to cut.
    It's only funny till someone gets hurt..........then it's friggin' hilarious

    Pilkington Glass can supply new screens for certain cars including a Consul which I thought would be EC 43r mark. If you went that route would be worth asking if they could do a chopped one. No idea of the price though.
