See i have this gas golf cart and hope to make a gentleman's atv outa it. it starts now and shifts and i scrounged a coupla (lawn mower) knobbys for the back, since they're bigger i'll hafta raise the bed. then i'd like to monunt a 2x3-foot windshield up front. i was thinking maybe 2" plastic pipe frame with slits around the inside for the plexiglas. maybe curve it for rigidity. anybody ever play that kinda game before? does it work?

Just a thought,as plexiglas is so prone to scratching.What about something like hatchback rear window and surrounding"tin" from a junk car or a pickup rear window"panel"?If going w/plastic,would suggest "Lexan" over plexi,Tougher and more scratch resistant.

Yep, Only I used plastic conduit, the elbows are thinner and wider sweep. Used a dremmel tool and put the slit around the inside. Glued it in a few places, then slid the conduit over steel pipe and bolted it fast. Worked good,
Later
