That really updated the look! Nice job. I wonder how that would look on a 35' Fountain?

I finally had time to get the boat out of the garage to change the oil so i took a few pictures of the boat with the new windshield on. I think it came out very nice.

Looks great, where did you end up getting the grommets from?

Also what paint code did you end up with?

I got the Grommets from Home Depot.

For the paint i had the local Automotive Paint center come over with a scanner and they scanned the color of the boat and they made the paint for me. Same thing that Home Depot does for interior paint but this place had a machine they could take to your location then take to there shop and make the paint.

I wanted to replace all the rubber washers that go on every screw so i looked at Home Depot and they were $1 each so i decided to look around a bit. I went to the local hardware store and we looked a O Rings. I got over 60 for about $3 total. That was a MUCH better deal than Home Depot. I just thought this might help some people out if they decide to re-do their windshield.

I hope this helps.
