Bought a 2020 X4 with custom cage but can't find a windshield that will fit. Anyone have any ideas? I'm probably going to have to make one but haven't found any good material for the glass.

Hi - made my own for stock talon.

Started with cardboard, then 1/4” plywood, then a scrap piece of plexiglass for a pattern. That took time, patience and a couple of nights to get good.

Once I had a pattern firmed up I have access to ACAD and made a drawing, sent that to my buddy who has a small plasma CNC and he burned it out for me in a piece of scrap .020” aluminum I had.

Then took to an auto glass shop and they cut and installed a piece of auto safety glass and gasket.

I have $200 into the windshield between the plasma cut and glass shop and also made my own aluminum roof out of aluminum to tie into windshield.

My advice - you can purchase scratch resistant lexan on both sides from eBay and just cut and get on with it or go down the road I did. Even without a plasma CNC I am confident I coulda cut with straight edges and a jigsaw.

I still need to perfect the gasket but for now used foam pipe insulation.

thanks - it will be amazing until I get a custom cage and it doesn’t fit anymore 😂

will move to version 2.0 at that point and sell the windshield/roof on eBay/clist.

all clamped or uses factory roof mounts so a no drill setup...... bolt on😝
