    Speedglass or other lightweight windshield

    Has anyone replaced their glass with lightweight lexan / polycorbonate windshield / windows?

    Any information is appreciated.

    Jim,

    I assume you will not be driving it on the street anymore?

    No no, just use a rubber mallet & beat on it, the Polycarbonate will flex allowing the ice to break away.

    Any stubborn chunks can then be removed W/a wire wheel on an angle grinder.

    I made a lexan winshield for the AI Challenger I wouldn't suggest running it on the street it's not as clear as glass has distortion hear & there

    I have a lexan windshield that looks and mounts like stock. You have to provide a core so they can make a mold and it was like $500 or something like that. It is about 10-15 lbs lighter and there is distortion. It does scratch easy so no wipers and never rub your windows without them being wet.

    I can look up the company name and specifics if you need them
    First all motor LX in the 9's

    I bet they did. I never got the stock one back. proglasswindows.com. They will paint a blackout around the outline to make it look like stock
