New windscreen Redbay

Looking to make a new windscreen for the redbay, can anyone recommend a supplier of a suitable flexible clear plastic type material, got a template so easy to make.

Need to check the current one but remember using 5 or 6mm last time.

Any you could recommend?

Old one was faded

I bought some sheet, made a new screen from the old one but struggled to bend it, I would like to change the shape slightly to follow the hand rail.

Any ideas would be great, thanks for looking

Amari plastics
Plastics plus


5-6mm polycarbonate will do you,',,,, should pull round that console without heat easily,,,,,,I can supply if you wish the material if you advise size req SQ

most suppliers will only sell 1/2 sheets not cheap but less than screen prices, pol carb will not break but will craze eventually ',,,,,,,,,years from now though
Simple to cut with jig saw and sand edge smooth to get soft touch edges
