    When I did mine, I just heated the PVC about halfway up the windshield support with my little propane torch. Then I bent it gently until it was straight up, then installed a 90 deg bend elbow facing forward. I turn it backwards for off road, cause the splash directs right into it if its forward.

    BTW, my scanner isnt working, so dont have any pics to put up. Sorry.
