Your making me nervous about this. I have a friend with a 3D printer so may ask him to make me some caps up to cover the tops.

I was going to suggest the same thing.

You've done a good job of that.  The mirror mounts do limit  how low you can cut them down but you can't do anything about that.  Caps will finish the job nicely.  I'll be doing that when my AA composite versions break up.

What a cracking job you've made of that, well done! You've got the shape of the uprights and screen blended together so well, they look like they could be factory options.

I’m not gona lie I’ve spent almost 12 hours on this little project so far. I don’t ever want to see a file again!

That’s finished nicely, the front view looks even better.   What did you use to fill the join, screen to upright?

I just used a rubber edge trim. The gap is 12mm. So bought the poly at 8mm and the edge trim is 12mm overall so it fits snug without even using the grub screw. I finished the top again with the edge trim but just cut to the shape of the recess

That looks great a few hrs we’ll spent ,as Dave said could be from the factory 👍

Let us know how the driving experience is .

Superb! Almost makes me think I’ve made a mistake getting rid of my old windscreen bits ;) 

 

Though I wonder how it would look with the fillet in black?
