That'll be the one. It's a light blue tint, but pretty obvious once you put it alongside a regular piece of, say, house window glass.

Is this the Blue Tint you're referring to?

I found this listing here:
http://www.ebay.com/...ydWjZSs&vxp=mtr
Here is another.
http://www.ebay.com/...V9X1en1&vxp=mtr


Can't tell if it's blue or the cloth behind it makes it look blue...

They're the ones.

 

I am looking for NOS to match the rest of the glass, I do have a few pieces of second hand I have purchased over the years but all have defects. I have tried to have some polished professionally and the result is terrible.

 

Note: I highly recommend not having any glass polished, the glass becomes "distorted" and looks worse than having scratches.

 

I am open to any "old school" polishing solutions. I have tried toothpaste and ladies rouge make up, neither were very successful.

A mate had his glass polished on his restored camaro and it came up all wavy, I think NOS is your best bet, if you can find it.

RE: Polish, good to know... I won't attempt that then!

I will ask my contact in the US to find a near mint glass if he can and let me know if he does...

Hi Gav,

 

That would be very much appreciated. I have almost given up on NOS as Ataka (jdm-car-part.com) has been looking for me for 2 years.

 

Could you give your contact the part number shown in my original message as I would like to try and match the part at least.

 

All this failing, dos anyone have a full set of NOS clear glass :)

Thanks Gav.

 

I have tried to contact the seller but he does not answer questions.

 

The US is the best bet, as you know it is always the drivers window that is scratched normally. Being LHD the chances of good glass RHD are improved.
