    Default just finished my windscreen, what do you think?

    We do a lot of early and late season skiing so I decided to make a windscreen to help block the cool air. I searched online for plexiglass and found a local plastic company close to me. I decided to go with a 3/16th thickness tinted piece. They will cut it any size, so I had them cut a 1 1/2 X 3 ft size which cost about $35. I made a template with some cardboard and tape and then traced it onto the plexiglass. I used my circular saw to cut it and a palm sander to smooth everything really good.

    I wasn't sure what to use to mount it, but I didn't want to drill any holes. I wanted to be able to remove it if I didn't like it. I decided to try some kind of metal "U" shaped channel to slide it into. When I was getting the plexiglass I asked the guy if he had any recommendations and he said they had something that might work and brought out this thing I think he called a cap rail? made of like a heavy plastic. It is pretty thin but really strong. I figured for $3 i would give it a try. If it doesn't work I could get something stronger. I used some 3M double sided tape to mount the "rail". I was worried about having something stick too far out and people would bump it when going by it but i don't think it will be a problem. I guess we will see. I mounted it at a slight angle going backward so the plexiglass would go behind the windshield. My son made the logo out of vinyl and put it on. It fits pretty dang snug and doesn't move at all. Have not tried it out on the water yet but will update as soon as I do.

    Scott, if you still have the sizes I can program the CNC to cut them out if others beside myself want one for the 2006-2012 LSV.

    Patrick, when you say the size, do you mean the measurements? and what is CNC? I can get the measurements for you tonight no problem.
