Garage attempt at a touring wind screen

I had some extra Plexi laying around, a heat gun and some time to kill.. Works GREAT... No buffeting, crazy wind noise or loss of visibility.

I initially used some crazy strong double sided tape to simply hold it in place while I planned to drill two holes in order to fasten everything together (keeping the tape in there as a cushion / dampener).

I goofed on the initial placement and tried to remove the top piece, only to find I couldn't.. I had to cut out the tape with dental floss. It's been holding like a champ for 5 months (at highway speeds). I constantly check on it, but has given me no signs of failure.. My luck, it won't show any signs until it snaps off and decapitates me on 101 S..

(I suppose that may freak out a few cagers)
