    Winshield build for Wolverine

    I'm interested in building my own solid front windshield (as opposed to folding) and I thought I saw a thread about building your own here last year, but I can't find it. Anyone else seen it? Any ideas? TIA!

    Bump for input. I just spent a pile of $ on the new X2 and trailer and stuff. Found .220 Lexan for 100.00.

    Looks pretty straightforward.

    This guy did it with thin Lexan.

    I have a CNC machine, I cut my own out just like factory. You have to buy the windshield clamps off Super Atv. The lexan is the most Expensive part, but if you have some laying around, take a trip to Illinois, I'll cut one out for you! LOL!

    The frame is made out of 1 inche square tubing. Then I took a sheet of 18 gage steel and cut to size of frame and after I cut out the opening. I then welded the sheet to the frame. I bought A gallon of DTM paint and using a Wize- roller painted everything. Got a 1/4 laminated glass from glass shop and put everything together. The part of the frame that sits on the roll cage I used some closed cell foam In between the roll cage and windshield frame-this worked great. O and I forgot to mention about the rubber trim around the glass I got from Amazon-very good quality

    One last detail I forgot to say the bottom and top of windshield I used some puck board it's strong and light and the rubber trim that you see I pulled of some car at Pick-And-pull
