Defender windshield on a Series?

Can anyone tell me if a Defender windshield will fit on a Series III? I know that it will not mate up to the Series top. I just want to find out if it will mount to the existing Series III bulkhead and mounting brackets.

It requires fabrication on the bulkhead. You would have to cut off the windshield brackets and get yourself a set of defender windscreen brackets.

I saw that I would need to remove the series outer brackets and install the defender ones. Hopfully that part goes smoothly. Do you know if the series inner retaining bolts will work with the defender windshield?

I'll be doing this in the next week or so, so I can let you know if you haven't figured it out yet. Instead of cutting my existing S3 windshield brackets off, I thought about modifying making them and making a small bracket to mate the S3 windscreen bracket to the defender screen mounting hole, if that makes sense. It would be pretty simple and save on buying the brackets.
