    I was wondering if anyone using is one of Rockstomper's Speedglas windshields
    and if so, what they think about it? ( [/url] = www.rockstomper.com )
    <br>Are they Street legal? This would be a perfect solution for my all
    fiberglass body K5 ([/url] = http://64.91.25.88 ). I've been worried
    about the windshield, because the glass flexes alot more, I am worried
    glass will crack. Also wondering how to install a glass one because the
    flange is much thicker than steel and the opening is slightly smaller(more
    fiberglass to reinforce the windshield frame), [/url] = www.usbodysource.com
    says to "Get a qualified glass installer, and ensure he has a
    belt sander. I wasn't aware a belt sander was a standard tool for a glass
    installer.)
    Anyhow..anyone with comments on these windshields?

    I run a plexyglass windshield in my rockcrawler. I bought a big piece of plexyglass, cut it and formed it. It works great, especially since I cant run a normal windshield (really bad rollover) Plexyglass atracts dust, and scratch easy. THe stuff they use is more scratch resistant, but alot more $$ I made mine for 25 bucks. Either way there both are not street legal.
