I think it is Laminated for windscreens and Toughened for the rest.

Thanks for the advice, I will be going for laminated glass. I think the thickness I can easily get is 6.4mm. Just got to make the frames for the glass, will start these this weekend

Cheers

On modern vehicles the glass is required to be kite marked and /or CE approved as it is many cases a structural piece. On the the MW it just keeps some of the flys off. What I have done in the past for my Dodges and the 101 is go to my local glass shop, though I'm lucky at my local place the guys are also into classuc cars, and they cut me a stock piece of of 6 mm laminated glass.
