Default UPD Plastics - Your thoughts?

I've been doing some research on replacing a windshield on my Cobia and there seem to be very mixed reviews about UPD Plastics (both here and at BBB for example). I really don't care about the time-frame complaints so much but want to make sure the quality is top-notch.

Is there any one out there who could give a personal review on their quality?

My dad bought one from him years ago. It was good.

I honestly don't think you really have a lot of other options...at least not from someone who specializes in windshields.

He is up front about the lead time especially during his busy months. Do not go to him if you’re in a rush. He does however deliver a quality product every time. I have had multiple windshields made and they have all fit exactly as I expected. UPD is the only company I know that stocks forms for many different manufacturers and most of the time, can produce a windshield without you sending them your old one. There are multiple other acrylic fabricators in South FL but they all need your old windshield so that they can duplicate it.

probably a little too old of a thread but I noticed on ebay the other days there is somebody selling lots o center console windshields: username on ebay is customplasticworks. No affiliation and no idea if they are legit, but just noticed and thought it was worth mentioning.
