Perspex screen on console

Hi, I was thinking of making a Perspex or Lexan screen to go on the front of my console to stop some of the spray coming over the top, do they work or are they a waste of time? my rib is an Avon D560, does anyone have some pictures they could post?

cheers Martin

You can come around and look at mine if you like Martin. I've got some Makralon/persex left over from mine that you can buy off me for a small sum.

Thats the kind of thing I want to make, I don't have that upstand kind of bit on my console so I was thinking of over lapping it a few inches and screwing it in place

That would be great, I may give you a call over the weekend or next week, are you still using your Rib at the moment?

Looking smart.

Looks as if there's enough 20mm conduit in that garage to form a handrail from Swansea to Camborne.

That console is now on the garage floor and version 2 is mid-installation.

Who in their right mind would want to join those 2 up?
