I have just had windscreen cover from BAT and unless I am doing something completely wrong, it doesn't seem to fit- it doesn't reach from door corner to door corner and seems to be designed for more of a raked windscreen. Am I being a wally or have they sent me the wrong size? Does anyone have any pics of a good fitting one from the side view?  Many thanks

Looks like it might be the wrong one. Did you specify Brazilian Bay when ordering?

Ours is a BATwrap and as Tallulah says have you been sent one for a BraziBay? We always start by attaching it to the drivers door, once attached close the door and wrap it around windscreen. Slightly open passanger door and with gentle persuasion it should fit and the close the door.

Hi Hemlock, here's mine.




Method I use is centre the windscreen part on the windscreen using wipers to hold it in place, attach drivers door corner like beakyboy and leave it open an inch (any more and it doesn't work as the further the door is open, it seems to tighten up) attach passengers side with door just open the same, then close both doors, which tightens everything up.

The stitching should line up exactly with the door front edge.



When I first got mine, it was a bit tight, and thought it was because I have window vents. I have measured mine, and at the top of the side section it is 86cm from the outer edge of the beading to the stitching joint, and 101cm at the bottom, so you can compare yours.

Thanks all for the comments and advice.  To be fair the lady at BAT has been very helpful.  She advised that it fits a Brazi and was tried on a bay before it was sent out.   I am going to have another go following your recommended techniques and if it still doesn't work she has said I can have a full refund.
