Hey guys. Has anybody fit their own windscreen and/or back window on the 1200 ute. If so, was it difficult?
Is it worth having a go at or best left to the pro's?
Cheers for any advice

Are you the patient type? If not than it's better left to the pros

If you have a go at it, start with the rear window, which is much eaiser to do. See the step-by-step at Installing Rear Window

The front window can be easily broken if you get in a hurry. See Windshield Replacement

Ok I'll check it out. Local guy wants $165 each to install so even if I can do the back one myself it's a good saving 👍🏻

I recently did both on my ute, it was actually surpingly easy. About 2 years ago I tried and had a professional try on the same ute but because there was excessive bog around the frame we broke two screens. After I had the window frame taken back to bare metal and repaired properly putting the new screen in was easy.
