Cool S1 Elan windshield

Hi all
I've been driving my Elan for 49 years now and with all the sand and grit crazing the windshield I now can't see through it if the sun is shining on it. It's tough driving with my head leaning out to the side. So I need a new windshield. Does anyone know of a good source for one for the S1?

Try: Pilkington Classics I was going to try them if I hadn't found a used one in good shape for a Europa.

Thanks CLW.
I tried Pilkington but they have windshields for the S2 and later cars. None for the S1. I did find Prosource Glass in Mass. that have them but they are tinted green. I may have to settle for that.

As far as I know, S1 and S2 are the same. They changed the body and windshield for S3.

The tinted ones are hardly tinted at all. My S4 windshield came from Prosource and tinted was all they had. I thought it would be an issue but you can hardly tell its tinted. I'm very happy with it.
