Watching this too. I would like to replace the very short one on my FS with a taller one that goes up to the elec box.

Normally you can find a local plastics supplier who will make one for you if you are looking for the "bent plexiglass" type. I can't help you in your area but a local should be able to point you in the right direction.

UPD plastics can custom make one or may possibly have on that fits your model. I just did this but contacted Edgewater. They had the exact one for me from 2001. This one came pre-drilled and the holes were slightly off from my console but I will make it work. Also, it's possible that a local plastics company near you may be able to make one. We have a Laird Plastics company in RI but there price was close to $600 because they had to send it out. I got mine for about $400. Good luck.

I got a piece of 1/2 polycarb from the local hockey rink and bolted directly to the TTOP Frame and drilled holes in it for a wiper motor. You can remove the puck marks with car compound and looks like new. Simple, low cost and easy and bitch to break.

Any local plastics fabricator

Werent there a few threads on them that they were not so good any more?

Check with Contender first. If they have any leftover, or possibly they still use the windscreen on another model, it will be the easiest & cheapest way to go.

IIWY - I would forgo the windscreen all together and get a custom curtain made.

I have had Eisenglass before on 2008 Comp and on my 2020 i did the windshield with a local shop - a little bit of a pain but like it much better
