    An AS1 marked screen is also acceptable for BIVA and can be found on other suppliers glass , possibly even Pilkingtons lowline screen. Also can be found on export model screens.

    pretty sure the low and hi line glass is the same kev. the rubbers are different and the only (relevant) body difference is the roof skin being more 'crowned' ie higher above the gutter/windscreens but the same from there down.

    I did wonder that as the Hiline is rarer so seemed a weird one to chose ? I had let those with Mk2s talk to Pilkington about it . It doesn't help when the supplier themselves doesn't know what they are selling

    I've had my Consul 40 years and always thought the Hi Line had a deeper screen lol
    I know that the actual roof is more bulbous etc.
    That's very good to know as I sunk my screen which was given to me from which model I do not know.

    Which swings round to the chop if you are gonna cut the glass... Although you haven't said what sort of style you are after.
    Chop it and lean the A B posts over and still have to lengthen roof between AB posts to line up. (Mine)
    Or chop it and lengthen AND widen roof to make it line up with posts (LoLid)
    Or chop it fit another roof (Lemon Squash)

    My first version simply had a template cut plastic screen bent over a stock screen at a speedboat place in Sheperds Bush lol
    It lasted 20 years with just a t-cut and minimal wiper usage.

    In the rebuild I followed whatisname who sunk a screen in to his Humber.
    It was a fiddly job but it gives a great look with the bottom of screen hidden.
    If it pops I order a stocker and good to go. Whereas if you've financed a chopped screen, and you don't get a fixed price, if five crack you buy em all. Then you go for a blast and it cracks from a stone. Screw that.

    When I did the scuttle mod I had to recreate a stock surround from a chopped one which took time.
    From fresh I saw that a three inch screen lower in job would be easy. My five inches hit complex scuttle shapes but dropping a full screen and surround by 3" would be a relative breeze.

    the windows are no taller on the hiline, the doors are the same on both which bears that out.
