Tried it out yesterday, worked like a charm. Such a big difference.
It costed me about 30 .







So how did i do it?
Cut out the thing from a piece of plexi, used the original screen as reference.
Then used my brothers R1200GSA screen as reference for the new form.
Then, 3 guys and one piece of plexiglas in the sauna, molding, warming and drinking beer.

Happy with the results, it aint perfect, but it'll do for me!
I am truly envious of your home baked barn door. much kudos. I would love to have one for my own.
