Does anyone know where I can get a windshield crafted from, the one on the boat I am redoing is plexyglass, and looks old and dingy. I am new at this and really have no resources.

We make them at work for customers. You should be able to take your old one to a plastics company that deals in plexiglass and they should be able to reproduce it using your old one for a pattern.If not,they would know where to tell you to take it.

Poster above says that this can be done in specialty shops. There is a place 'round here that does it. Check out the price for doing it in your neighborhood.

I have a very vague recollection that I have heard that this can be done on a do-it-yourself basis with heat guns. Sorry, don't know any more. Plexiglass is not very expensive though.
