Wind Deflector Material?

I'm trying to determine what kind of clear plastic material is used on the wind deflectors. Is it acrylic, polycarbonate, styrene????

I've attempted to polish them back to new, however, I've tried every tip on the forum to no avail. If it's made from acrylic, I'm going to attempt the MAPP gas flame polish technique.

Any answers or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Wind Deflector Material?

I would guess they are the same material in the stock windshield which is a coated polycarbonate.
