I made a windshield for the TW using Lexan Polycarbonate sheet, a heat gun and a homemade bender. I started with a cardboard template and then copied it over to Poly sheet before bending. I was planning on mounting the windshield on the inside of the cowling like the other one on the market but my bending was a ⅛” large and it would not fit. However I think it worked out for the best, being that I made this windshield almost twice the height of the other one. Mounting the windshield on outside added for better stability as the wind pushes against it.

Nice job fabricating, but - You've got to be real careful with that, that you don't take off your nose or your eyes or your neck when you go over a bump and lean or get projected forward. That could be real hazardous to your health.

Great job - looks well done! Also it appears you were fixin' to have a BBQ judging by the "tools" on your work bench. I'm very astute when it comes to detecting BBQ activity :)

Does this larger design get the wind over your head?

Thanks, I just got done forging that set of BBQ tools in the morning and took pictures on that black carpet to get them listed right before I took photos of the windshield.
