There`s been several vids on YouTube via mad mechanics, they tried cutting the corners from the screen for lambo kits. There seems to be two problems when carrying out the task.
If the cut is successful, this becomes a stress, possible delamination point.
 The guys noticed that a  crack would always start from there if anywhere, and the milk effect would start from the cut corner. This topic was discussed around 5 years ago.

Thanks for the replies that's very helpful.
On my car the other 2 reservoirs you can see next to the power steering one arrowed, the brake and coolant are located now on the other side near where the battery once was but I can reach them with no problem. I'm surprised they left the brake and coolant in a place where you can easily top them up but buried the power steering one under the wing.
Thanks once again, I'll check the belt as well. Smiley

Hi Brillo
The Power steering reservoir is under the Off Side Wng
It will be a pain to top up if needed, I have arrowed it in the picture
Also check your belt that drives the power steering is not loose and slipping. Could be the cause of stiff steering and squelling

Good luck
Mick

Could be that. don't know where the PAS fluid reserviour is, however my steering felt stiff when I unplugged the speedo interface (in the passenger footwell on RHD cars), so do check the electrical connections too

 Hi all.
Haven't been on here for ages or used my 360 due to Ill health. Only used it twice in a year since JD finished it. Went to use it the other day and the steering was making a weird noise and was was very stiff, could hardly turn the wheel. Bought some steering fluid but can't find where the reservoir is located. The Coolant and brake fluid reservoirs are there but can't find the power steering reservoir. I know it's common to move things around when building these kits because of the Extreme front wings are wider than the Peugeot but still can't find it. Does anyone know where it might be located, has anyone experienced this before.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Regards.
Brillo.

Hey John, let me know when you do yours, I need to get better screen rubber for mine and will join you when you go to Woolies, probably take my car there (I've had sampled from their bins, but without me having the car there, I didn't get it right)

No problem at all.
I look forward to seeing you again.
I'll give you a call when I'm at that stage.

I've had a practice on a random screen from my local scrappy, and the corners are easy to do, using a template to cut around each side (a coke can in this case), and then crushing the glass after jiggling it first with a pair of pliers and then cutting the laminate off with a stanley blade.
I'll be doing this to my build and getting some screen rubber/trim from Woolies, which is just up the road from me.
The screen at the bottom is not advisable to cut as this is where the scuttle bonds too apparently.

I am on the case. Have spoken with a local specialist who does laminted glass cutting . |They advise that a possible complication is the green shading at the bottom of the screen. If the cut goes through this area then diffiuclty arises when they try to aline the two cuts either side of the screen since they have to be exactly inline. They can see the outer cut but cannot see where the inner cut needs to be.  However they say it is not impossible and have asked me to take the screen to them . I will keep you updated.
