TS screen.

Post by Delrocco1 » Sun May 31, 2020 11:56 am

So am at last making progress with the mk1 resto due to suddenly having a bit more time on my hands! Got the screen out of the back of the shed (bought 15 years ago from vw company near Southampton that went out of business) and noticed on the packaging that it stated specifically that it was for a mk1 scirocco without the wraparound indicators!! I am guessing the TS model? This was a surprise to me as I thought they were the same shape. This screen is similar but the corners are slightly sharper. If this is the case, then I have a brand new original screen for a TS if anyone is interested.

There should be no difference in any build from 1974 up to 1981.

The company I get my window from have 8 colour variations but all suitable for 74-81 cars.

The screen is clear but nobody has yet confimed that there is a difference between ts and regular screen!

Thanks. It's a mystery! I am going to look a bit closer for clues.
