Stylus windscreen

Can anyone confirm which windscreen I need to order for the Stylus?


https://www.heatedwindscreen.com/acatalog/lotus-elan-s3 -4-clear-laminated-windscreen.html

or

https://www.heatedwindscreen.com/acatalog/lotus-elan-s1 -2-clear-laminated-windscreen.html

I think it's the first but just want to check before.

Club Stylus website say '66-'73 S2-S4 which is Pilkingtons number 9113 [url=https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/automotive/makes-and-models/lotus[/url] . Which is the same as the S3-S4 in the 1st link.

Thanks

My experience having had the wrong one once and based on Jeremy using the same screen in several models... Is there's a lot of confusion about which screens fit which models of Elan and even which are S1/2/3

The screen Jeremy used is the middle one (age wise) of the ones produced. I believe it's S2 and some S3. Later S3s and S4 had a shorter screen with more wrap around at the ends.

I'd say that is the first one you linked to ...but as I said there's much confusion.

When I said "it looks like the first on" I meant like what's pictured in that link.

I'm dubious of them saying it's a S4 screen though. There was a recent thread with similar confusion over a fury screen but the OP hasn't updated with an outcome...

Where did you get it from? Do you know the part number?

there was someone on a forum who did a batch of them about 13 years ago for a fury too. At the time it was a min order of 50 units, so he did the lot and sold them off. No part number or brand im afraid! It fits nicely in the surround though. If you want any pics etc then send me your email address and can photo whatever you need me too.

Have you tried contacting Siltech Racing https://www.siltechracing.com/contact-us

they are the current owners of the Stylus so may have a supplier lined up.
