Perspex windscreen replacement.

I have a 1965 V171 Glastron Sportsman that I need new perspex for the screen. It's a three piece screen with a curve at each side. Can anyone point me in the direction of someone that can bend me some perspex?

I'm in North Yorkshire but obviously happy to post !

Thanks.

As I know that there are a lot of Quick boats on this forum I thought some might be interested to know these things were raced in the 1960's. Mine tops out at 60mph with the sat nav fully loaded with the family/fuel and a 135 hp Mariner 2 stroke. A bit quicker driving solo...... I'd like to get the original screen back on.Click image for larger version

Coincidence or what ! Went to HLN supplies in Leeds this afternoon and should be about two weeks.

Looking as if it'll be around 250- 300. I have the old ones as a pattern & will post pictures when it's done.

Cheers Riccardo1.

Yes, they made a plywood former with the old screens and put them in an oven. I've kept the former as the only downside is that they seem very easy to scratch although very easy to polish out.

Something tougher is probably very expensive.
