What do you think of my new windscreen for my DR350?

I haven't secured it yet with the nylon screws I am planning. I am still dtermining the height I prefer. I really just wanted something to take the wind off my chest a bit. Opinions wanted. Also, does anyone know what shields are compatible with these Bark Busters?

Looks very nice.

Did you make it from acrylic, or polycarbonate?? How did you make the nice, clean bends??

I've been working on a small screen, about the same size as yours. Mine doesn't look as clean or professional. Nice job.

Looks great!

Excellent quality, I like the clean look.

Don't even think about those off the shelf ones that look just like everyone else.

Thanks, it's made out of polycarbonate. I just so hapen to have a friend who makes windshields for drag racing cars. He has some heat bars that mount on his work bench which allow the really straight clean bend. We hand cut the rounded top edge. I wound up using some white nylon nuts and bolts to secure it. I thought it came out pretty well.
