I installed the windscreen on my Solara Convertible, if anyone wants pictures email me aimeerose13gmail.com It works great, with the windscreen, heated seats and heat on, the top is always open unless its raining or snowing. The car goes back on my lease soon ... if anyone needs a windscreen email me, it does not go back with my car lease

I am new to the forum and new to the Solara, but just figured I would check, did you sell your windscreen?

Actually, I bought Ted's windscreen! I figured I'd reply, just in case he doesn't see these posts.
BUT... sad to say, I haven't had it installed yet. I have been out-of-state a lot since the beginning of the year. But I need to get it done soon ~ cruisin' weather is here!!!

Has anyone installed or have knowledge of the windblox.com windscreens? It looks pretty cool but I'm skeptical that they actually work as well as the traditional metal/canvas that have to be installed by a professional. I would like to be able to use my back seat while the windscreen is installed and this maker claims that with their windscreen you can have back seat passengers with no problem. Thanks all!

The picture one their website seems to show that their design makes the passenger side back of seat cargo pocket inaccessible though. I keep trays for eating in the car and other stuff back there. Don't think I like that feature.
It does open up the back seat though. My dealer installed fabric in metal frame windscreen does man that no passengers only cargo can go in the back when I'm using mine.
Thanks for sharing this.

Yes, the windscreen does a fine job at letting you have passengers in the back. It's one of the few I have owned that I can actually say I really enjoyed using while still gaining functionality from the car's full interior. It also let's you see out the back a lot ore than the fabric ones, so I have to give it my two thumbs up.
#21 of 24 need fastener/clip for 2008 Solara convertible windscreen
Jun 30, 2010 (1:23 pm)
The windscreen for my 2008 Toyota Solara convertible attaches behind the back seat with 2 little metal clip-type fasteners, one of which fell off somewhere and is lost. The Toyota dealer's Parts Dept scoured their resources and swear there is no such thing in Toyota's inventory that I can buy. It's such a tiny little item, probably worth only a few cents, but is integral to use of the windscreen. Does anyone know where/how I can get a couple of these fasteners? Thanks!

1) Take your windscreen around to the fabric shops in your community. It they don't have exactly what you're looking for they might be able to direct you to where you can buy them. It's just bent wire.
2) Go to a hardware store, find a suitable hook or buy some wire and bend it into the shape you need.
Hope this helps,

Wow!!! You were able to get a windscreen installed for a 2008? I have been trying for 2 years to locate the hardware! I bought a windscreen off a guy who was turning in his lease. Little did I know the hardware wasn't included
Meegwell, you were the smart one...had it dealer installed right from the get-go! You gave us all a good tip... I will try your suggestion! Thanks...

Yeah, that's why I would go with a Windblox. They are way easier to get on and they don't require any fancy hardware, etc. You can get them on and off in just a minute or so. That, and with the warranty, you know you won't ever have any problems with it.
