Marvelous windshield. The reflections from the light tubes are as straight as a string.

Good Job.

The windscreen is actually a glycol modified polyethylene terephthalate (PETG). I had it formed by Aircraft Windshield in Los Alamitos, California. It was on their suggestion that I use that material because it has the properties of Lexan with better optical clarity and formability. For the record, they were really good to work with and I'm happy as a clam.  grin Glenn, the light lines carry right on through on the body. You're right. They're very good. Glen, I'll be at El Mirage. I'm hitching a ride with Buddy and the Fladhead Cad. I have starting line duty Saturday morning and I'll be at the White Goose Bar. Wayno

Jon, for the record I supplied them with a male mold for the screen. The mold has to go a couple inches beyond the edge that you want to end up with so you don't have wrinkles in that area. Also the process used is drape forming because it gives better optics than drawing the sheet into a mold. I used a mold that I got from Jack Kelly and carefully blocked it down to 320 grit. Oops. They proceeded to rough it up with 40 grit so the felt wouldn't slide around and bunch up. I had forgotten that part of the process.  rolleyes Wayno

Before cockpit construction is complete, you may consider engineering a small holder to house an "A" harmonica
for use while waiting in line. Of course there is always the chance it may not pass technical inspection. Ha

Hopefully we have a date to Boogie again, at the Cook meet.

Wayno, did the SCTA approve the PETG or are you going to show up at tech and convince them it is OK?

Thanks Wayno

Not sure if I will get something done here or over there.

First response from the guy I contacted didn't seem that exciting, I will hunt around here a bit more.
I'm still a bit off needing it.

Thanks
