This is how ridiculously high my windscreen looked before any body was built around it.
I used a Johns Explorer as a guide for height.
My original one I felt was too low I was constantly sitting in a ducked down behind the screen.
I also found getting the steering wheel at a comfy hight when sat down and more importantly at a comfy angle.
And making sure you can comfortably get you knees under the dash.
Being comfy in there is important.

We are using a VW Lupo rear screen (heated & has hole for wiper) the screen is about 440 tall with about 40mm of the perimeter blacked out. Sloping it back gave us 300mm of vertical clear screen viewing height, . We figured that the craft will be flown mainly by cadets so opted to lower the screen a little. After much  deliberation we settled on 1180mm to top of screen frame, allowing for the blacked out perimeter that makes the top of the clear screen 1140/1150mm. We'll probably sort the dash & control heights out in the week.

Yep, I keep forgetting to take some :-X
Will make a concerted effort take some  progress shots this weekend. The last ones I have are a couple of weeks old and the side decks aren't fitted. One of the cadets is working on an update piece for the forum, I will chase that too
