Phantom 18 screen

Hi all. I dont say much on here (used to be a RIB'ber and scared of you lot) but you do seam to know your stuff and often read this technical section.

I am trying to get my phantom on the water for the summer.

My question is did 18's have perspex screens or GRP like the bigger phantoms? Mine's been "tweaked" somewhat by previous owners and has a (now cracked) perspex screen which i am trying to decide how best to replace.

Will try to post pics this weekend. I am putting together a 2li V6 to push it along, so no doubt will be some techie questions about that too. Gonna fit XR2 heads (this weekend) to up the compression a little and a light weight flywheel. The exhaust ports appear to have been worked already which is good i think.
