    Thanks for the response, that is what I was finding also. Didn't know if there was a preference, or anyone associated with the group who could use the support. So you can't get a windshield from Vetter if I live in the US?

    That's my take.

    I have a friend who lives in PA, and in his town, there is a fireworks store that only sells to out-of-state residents - ID required and strictly enforced.

    Bought one through Vetter A couple of year ago, but I see you can't do that anymore. Actually, when I ordered, it was redirected to Slipstreamer.com, which seems to be the manufacturer, which I ordered from. They even sent screws and clips! And thats changed now, you have to go one of their dealers. All kinds of lawyer jokes are coming to mind!

    I ordered m8ne from ebay, it's a Slipstream, standard size with vents. Vents and mounting hardware included shipped in less than a week for just under 100. So far it seems really nice.

    I cut my own out of Lexan. I made a pattern out of card board and cut it out on a 9" band saw. Then I sanded the edges. I didn’t bother with heating it to bend it to the curvature of the fairing. Lexan bends very well so it was not necessary. I got the Lexan from a local glass shop. He happened to have a peace left over that was just large enough and charged me $18 including tax for it.
