    last time i got one for a 405 was in rockhampton and it was $230 in 1997
    i enquired about the 306 and it was $200
    also $200 for the 604
    prices from O'brien in dubbo FWIW
    where as here in parkes the local O'brien guy wanted $350 for the 306 and $300 for the 604
    the idiot in town here tried to tell me that the 306 was a special screen for the auto wipers as he said it was integrated into the screen and i took him outside and said look
    he said oh i must have read the book wrong

    The lesson is that you never buy a screen in the bush...

    On the second hand market, a screen you might pay $120 for in a country centre will cost you $20 in the cities.

    Though it might bring difficulties, the economy is there. I once drove from Holbrook to Melbourne during the month of August, some time after midnight (I stopped at Benalla at 6:00am to buy ski gloves) with sheets and blankets wrapped around me...

    That and the fact that screens dont last long in the bush - even if they escape big chips, they get sandblasted badly in a couple if years.
    My first Fuego was an 83' model and still had the original Reno screen in it - defianatly a city car all its life!

    do a trucky trick and use brasso on your sand blasted screen
    gets rid of a lot of the sand blasted areas but not all
