Default Wind Deflecter

I have a 1988 Scarab KV. I have been trying to locate a replacement wind deflector for this classic boat. Mine is broke in half. I can have one reproduced for the tune of $1400 Ouch! So I thought I would put the word out to my Scarab brothers and see if anyone might have any suggestions.

Try local plexiglass or glass shops. Since you have the old one for a template it would be real easy for them to form a new one.

If no one can do it cheaper, send me some rough dinensions L x w height angle and I have a local plexiglass shop that Ive delt with for side glass on my Formula. I can get a quote from them for 2-3.

I was trying to post an attachment pic. I guess Im not the right member. The problem is that it has a radius the length of it and is bent in the middle about 45 degrees to deflect. Can Your shop do that?

I have the same boat, so sure that if I took the boat to them, they would be able to match the radius.
