Drain channels wanted for the sides of the windscreen, part numbers 399217 and 399218.
I don't think the club stocks them yet but I need these to finish if anyone can please help.
Thanks.

As far as I know these items have never been available, even from Land Rover themselves, as a replacement part. I have looked for them in the earliest yearly Land Rover parts list, dated from 30th September 1991, that I saved for reference and they are not listed!
They are plastic and, if not in too bad a condition, can be repaired using a glass fibre or plastic padding kit. I have managed to obtain some decent 2nd hand samples from broken vehicles, which seems to be the only way of obtaining any. I can't see the Club getting any made, as plastic manufacturers & specialists suck their teeth and don't want to know; whether this is due to difficulty of manufacture or the fact we don't require several million, I'm not sure, but gather its probably the former reason.

Les.

Thanks Les for your information, I will look at fabricating some out of hardwood or aluminium as one of mine is broken into many pieces and seems very brittle, too far gone I think to repair!

he means the brittle plastic ones that go down the sloping front of the door top, attached to the windscreen.

Harry, aluminium sounds good, I remember a very well known ex club member, that was the first to fit a Land Rover 200 Tdi engine in a 101 GS, had a pair made by his brother milled out of aircraft aluminium, when on night shift at Marshalls of Cambridge in the nineties.

I fitted my replacement windscreen without them Harry, doesn't seem to make much difference.

Mine seems to let in a bit of daylight between the door and windscreen so I assume rain will follow.
I prefer to fit channels and will post pictures when I've done it, just to keep the rain out as I live in a wet part of the country.

Had these made a while ago, but just got round to hole drilling, cutting to length and painting, fitted them yesterday and they do fill a gap!
I do now have a spare one which is good enough to fit or use as a pattern if any one wants it.
