Does anyone have a good contact for a person/company that can make a Lexan replacement for a stock glass windshield?
I can ship or deliver the original as a pattern.

Thanks,

I bought these guys off-the-shelf rear window and it’s nice.

Seems like they do custom.

They will do custom. They made the rear window for my Saturn. Good work and reasonable pricing. Didn’t have to ship, so no idea on what that might cost.

Optic Armor is another good one: http://www.opticarmorwindows.com/

They made rear hatches and front windshields for our FC RX7's. 4 years and a 12 hour enduro later and its still almost as good as new.

It's very cheap and surprisingly easy to DIY if that's of any interest, especially if you have an intact glass one.

I bought a couple of used NASCAR windshields from racingmetal.com for a very low price. They are primarily in the souvenir business but also (a few years ago now!) had/have the windshields for cheap.

Lay the plastic one front side down, lay glass on top, find best curvature fit, mark plastic slightly oversize and cut with a coarse cutoff wheel. I'll admit that I paid my favorite local fabricator to do mine as part of a bigger job, but after watching said "Hey I can do that job next time!".

This all depends of course on the reseller still selling the windshields and your vertical dimension being smaller than the NASCAR one. Mine had plenty to spare but the Scirocco is a small car.

I'm 90% sure that the suggestion for using racingmetal.com came from someone on this forum years ago.
