I usually buy my own felt, a fairly thin and dense one, and cut my own glass and make sure it fits rather tight, then you have to “pinch” the glass in the channel at the top and bottom by tapping the divider against the glass where it ends.

Subject: [Healeys] BN7 Sidescreens - Screen Fitting Instructions

Went for a drive the other day and as it was rather windy I fitted my new side screens for the first time and was impressed with the wind and noise protection they gave. Part of the drive took me onto a highway and when I increased the speed to 100 km/h the fixed screen on the drivers door blew out (thankfully there were no other cars around me)

Taking a closer look at the side screen frame and comparing it to the original side screen assemblies I noticed the following:
1. The siding screen is in the inner channel which has a felt U-section – same as the originals
2. The outer channel, for the fixed screen is filled all-around with a high density felt which is just below the channel lip.  Is this right, as the felt blocks the drainage holes, the screen does not sit deep in the the channel, and the original side screens do not have this felt?

I have spent countless hours surfing the net, the archives, looking at parts books, and Gary Andersons restoration guidelines and can’t find how the screens are fitted inside the frame so I would be really appreciative of help and guidance.

Thank you
