Does anyone know if replacement windows for TR4s (and I assume TR5s and TR6s) are available locally.
All leads appreciated.

I just had one fitted to my 4 and had got quotes from two windscreen mobs in Bendigo for it. Both quoted about $260 fitted, and the supply took about four days, so they are about. They also fit Spitfires and GT6s so should be reasonably common.

Thanks Peter, were these windscreen mobs part of national brands (O'Briens etc) or just local businesses?

Both local, although if a one man operation can get them the chains should be able to.
Cheers, Peter

Managed to get a second hand one from Greg Tunstall in Brisbane, Greg has run a Triumph repair shop for many years and had one for $80 with some minor scratches.
The local windscreen repair guy on the Gold Coast that I was recommended (he does hot rods and muscle cars) wasn't able to supply one but said he could get one made for the price of a new one if I couldn't get one anywhere else.
