Lots of Touring Coaches have them so a good place to start would be a truck parts supplier.

The ones on our coaches were custom made for each one.


Worth noting two of them still got smashed windscreens from stones that obviously didnt respect the height of the shield.

Hi Adamg,

When you get one, spray the mesh with flat-black paint or you won't see through it!

Cheers

It is worth being aware that they add significantly to fuel consumption. Saw them tested somewhere about 20 years ago and they reckoned the effect was somuilar to having a roofrack.

Thanks very much to everyone for helping, I am looking at Hy-way Truck Accessories as they seem to list one to suit.

Thanks for the post about fuel usage but in my case this window is massive and the bus is an import sort it would be very hard to replace.

Cheers.

Adam

Dont know about here but in NZ there was lots of Fuso buses and hence parts were brought in from Japan for them

You may be surprised if you check out windscreen prices as some of our bus ones were as cheap as cars.
