I have actually wondered if anyone else would want a windshield done at the
same time. I think the initial stiffening setup cost represents about 30%
of the total, and the production setup probably another 20% - 30%.
 Therefor, it spread out over 3 or 4 orders the actual unit price might be
closer to CDN$250.00 (that's US$162 at the current exchange rate). My old
windshield is flexible enough to curl up to fit in a square box. If the
new material is similar then shipping wouldn't be a big deal.

Is anyone else interested?

My bottom gasket is pretty much intact but it certainly shows age. I
thought I would just look for a similar profile gasket if mine becomes

Greg -

For what it's worth, my Sweet 16 has a glass windshield which I'm guarding
with my life.

Have you considered the possibility of limited production? I'm sure others
need them, and
I wouldn't mind replacing my glass one with a plastic one. Is it a process
with a lot of setup
time so it would be worthwhile to make several at once?

On a related subject, what about the gasket that goes between the frame and
Mine is absolutely shot.
