I sometimes think it would be nice to see out the back window in winter. In the old days you used to have those stick on demister panels. The ones that turned brown, curled up at the corners and finally fell off. I've been looking around for one for my Beetle but not had any luck in the Uk so wondered if anyone had seen anything similar in other country's  Below is a picture of the type of thing I'm looking for if it helps.

This is the  kit. Electric rear screen heater & demister for retro fitting to classics. Provides a clear view over full width of screen. Supplied complete with all necessary wires, connections & switch. It doesn't need to be the same so long as there is rear screen heater demister I'm not worried about the other bits. Thumb

Havn't seen that (hardly any classics here).

How about rigging a couple of 12V computer case fans to blow on the screen. Won't be so fast but perhaps better than nothing? I believe the engines around there somewhere so you might have a source of ducted warm (but not, of course, dry) air handy.

Not the same situation, but when I spent a winter term as a student at Aberdeen University (where it gets chilly) sleeping in my car, I used to leave my hot water bottle (yes, I'm a wimp) on the dash under the windscreen to gently de-ice it. Worked quite well.
