WTB: New Front Windshield 1991 Pulsar GTi-R

Hey Everyone, new to the forum here. Just picked up my second pulsar, however it has a cracked windshield. I'm located in southern ontario about an hour away from Toronto. I need a front windshield for my 1991 Gti-r! Willing to pick up within reason, also willing to pay for shipping. Any brand is fine as long as it is the right part.

 

Thank you so much

That's where I got mine a few months ago. See if he still has some left.

FYI heated windscreen.com still makes them. I just messaged them yesterday. I am ordering 5 if anyone wants one I think I have one left up for grabs (I'm keeping 3 for myself lol). But I live in Fort St John BC so not much use to you.

Hi Ben,

I can make a one off for £350 or I can make you a batch of 5 and they will
be £225 each.

Shipping of 1, 2 and 3 is the same price and 5 would be a touch more.

The shipping options are door to door or to airport only and usually come in
at £450 to the door and £270 to the airport.

Thanks
Dan

That's really good to know Ben.  Are they actually heated? or just plain glass.

The price he quoted was for a batch of heated ones BTW.  The regular ones are cheaper (not sure how much exactly).  He had one regular unheated one left over from another batch they did that he is including in my order for 100 pounds.

Good to know, I live in Vegas, I don't exactly need a heated windsheild lol.  I was unaware that shipping by airline to the airport was an option, since I'm about 5 minutes away from McCarran International, that will work out great.  Thanks for the info, I was getting worried that all the suppliers were going to stop making them altogether.

You plan on selling any of those, or just hoarding them for the future? (not that I would blame you)

I'm keeping 3 of the windshields. They put gravel down on the roads here in the winter. No joke on average a new windshield lasts 6 months here before it gets cracked.

You know, 3m makes a windshield protection film similar to what you'd put on your phone screen. Costs about $300 and they warranty it against breakage up to $2000.  It has to be changed out about every 3 years or so once it starts to get scratched, but it works great.

I've only heard of Clearplex which supposedly gets very scratched up after about a year. What is the name of the 3m stuff?

This company sells the 3M brand I believe.  They are warrantying it for 5 years.

Any of these contacts sell door glass that isn't the dealership?

I'm pretty sure any JDM parts importer in Canada could get you some. I seriously doubt you could find new glass at a Nissan dealer.

I got my windshield at the dealer. Door glasses might be harder to get from them and way too costly

So, after a few options, one is pretty cool but not much I can do about it. The guy “minibrutes” has 30 pulsar gti-r windshields. But they are literally in the middle of nowhere in ontario. 18.5 hours away from me. But 4 hours for anyone in Winnipeg and 3 hours for anyone in Thunder Bay. Looks like I’ll be going through lexan or, rightdrive on Pickering Ontario
