Heated screen needs new leads from the glass

The flat wire leads have been cut / broken off my heated screen . There is 1/8" or less exposed beyond the gasket. If I remove the screen is it possible to solder on new leads? If so does anyone know what type of wire I'm looking for?

Thanks Mark! I don't see the flat wire on the website but i've got an email into them.

This is what the wire looks like

slightly off topic, but can you install that windshield upside down so the strips are hidden under the plastic along the roof line?

Is the window the same top and bottom?
