My first attempt was with the thin Lexan. That was a disaster, because every time I climbed above 60 mph, the shield would bend back.
This is the thicker, acrylic material and it came out beautiful.
As for helping out......
Sorry, but can't build more.....barely have time to do my own stuff.
But here is a drilling recommendation that I learned off another site..... Measure and only drill the two holes for the plastic guides. Once the shield is placed on the mount, then you can easily 'sharpie mark' the other 6 holes and drill them. This is really important, as it will help you see and understand the angle at which the hole needs to be drilled. Sounds complicated, but is really a 10 minute job and pretty easy. (ps...I also drill the holes first with a much smaller drill....then went to the larger drill for final size.)
