Cutting down windshield
I have a CB windscreen (don't know the size but it has wings) that is a bit tall for me. It does have the flip towards the top and I am wanting to cut it down at the bottom to avoid cutting that "flip".
I have cut a screen before using a jigsaw and it left a small crack in a spot where I had cut along and it definitely wasn't as smooth as before the cutting.
Is their a better way to cut a screen, such as using an electric planer? Also, if cutting from the bottom, I will need to re-drill the mounting holes. I have read that one should not drill all the way through when piloting the new holes. If you don't drill all the way through, how do you mount the shield? Is their an art to the drilling of these holes?
Thanks for any advice,
