    New Pics coming soon!
    I will paint it nice and have a custom piece of auto glass will be cheaper because there actually is a model it used to fit! This has two windshield wipers hanging from the top with each one having a different switch. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif As far as visibility, it's actually pretty comparable to what I had... before I rolled. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    When you narrow it I think it will look better. It is kinda "dinky" with the full width set up. Have you thought about a wrangler windshield? I think they are a bit wider than a sami /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    probably sir...

    actually, i don't think I will ever have it folded down. It will likely [for sure] be taken off for crawling.

    Why not use a windshield something like this? You would have to admit that it is light weight not to mention how cool you would look.

    To be steet legal in AZ you need a windshield and wipers (just for the bugs I guess, since we don't get rain anymore). I don't see wipers on those... /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    The wipers wouldn't be too hard. It's aiming the squirters that might be a pain. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    FWIW, Dee Engring (VW/Sandrail vendor) offers a rubber extrusion that will let you put a winshield in a round tube frame. P/n 6049 = 12 ft.

    Yep, that's it. Look at the part number, it matches. Guess my link was not good. Couldn't find it on their site but thought maybe it was in a catalog. Nice job of sleuthing. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Looks a hell of a lot easier than grafting in another windshield frame /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I just fit a Lexan (polycarbonate) windshield on my K5 after I flopped it over on its side into a tree and glass no longer fits. Had to weld in a frame to bolt to and bend the Lexan on the curves. Talk about a bitch, that was a hell of a project, I did not expect it to be such a pain. I will post a pic of the finished product soon. Only problem is I don't think CHP will appreciate the craftsmenship as much as I do. Even though that stuff is damn near bullet proof.
