Windshield for a penny

Hi, guys! Who tried to install an acrylic windshield and how it works and wears out in to compare with a polycarbonate one?
Acrylic windshield I can order to make right here witout of shipping cost. Actually I wanna get a short one, not a tall like standard. My sample for making is the National Cycle windshield I got with the bike.

Re: Windshield for a penny

There are several aftermarket windshields in the US that are Acrylic and they wear good. I prefer Polycarbonate for shatter resistance and overall strength my self. But I have flown many airplanes with Acrylic windshields
