I am new here. I have an 85 stars and stripe. When I bought the boat four years ago the windshield and side windows and tops of frame had been replaced with strips of aluminum. I made windshield look as close to original with stainless but would like original can anybody point me in right direction to find a windshield or replacement pieces.

Welcome to Team Talk. Windshield for our older boats can be hard to come by, but they still pop up occasionally. Good luck with your search.

My '77 came without a windshield. I managed to locate a Taylor windshield that is a pretty close fit. After 4 1/2 years I have finally located a correct windshield and will have it soon.

Do you have the original glass/plastic. If so, I may be able to help with some of the original framework.

Thank you. That would be awesome. I am missing the three top rails of the windshield, and also the Taylor made glass I made up top rails to what it should look like and had lexan put in. This is what it looks like will find a photo of what it looked like before.

This is what it looked like before. It sloped down to the center of boat. They also added a strut in the center to support the hack job of a windshield and frame
