Looks very nice. I have contemplated doing the same thing. I like the colors on the boat too. Very clean look. Random, but is that the 20" MC logo on the rear hull side?

That's a beautiful boat. Love the color, and lack of decals.

Looks real good! Been thinking of doing the same and seeing yours convinced me.

how is the frame dismantled? obviously by removing the screws retaining the top of the frame as a start..how is the rest attached?

Tim,

The frame is all attached with screws and compression fit rubber. There is a small amount of clear silicone adhesive in the joint between the two pieces of glass, most likely used to help with assembly. This is the order I went through for disassembly and was done on each side independently (duh):

1)Remove black rubber trim on exterior of frame base
2)Remove screws attaching frame to top deck
3)Lift windshield, frame still intact from the top deck and off the boat. (a second set of hands would be helpful)
4) Place windshield on carpeted surface and remove all screws from the frame
5) Remove top frame - I used some soapy water in a spray bottle to lubricate the rubber best I could. It tends to want to stick.
6) Remove bottom frame
7) Seperate the two glass pieces if it hasn't already

Hope that helps!

Going to tint mine over the winter. The shop that's replacing the side graphics can do the tinting. They disassemble the window, tint then reassemble. They're asking $200 for the job which seemed like a lot but then again that makes them responsible for the glass if it breaks. I may go with having them do it. Love the look. Gonna stay with 20% I think.
