Unhappy Glass replacement for "walk thru" part of windshield on a '93 205

I need replacement glass for the walk through portion of the windshield on my 1993 Prostar 205. So far Taylor Made tells me the original replacement is no longer available and gave me the contact info for Ocean Dynamics, who can custom make it.

Anyone have any thoughts about this. I thought maybe just a local glass shop might be able to fabricate it for me but there does appear to be a slight curve to it. Or maybe another member had to replace their windshield but the walk thru is still good and wants part with it?

If I have to have it custom made I will. Just trying to see if I have any other options.

That one should be easily made by a glass shop. I would have to look, but I think mine is flat. Even if not, I think a flat one would work...

Are you talking about the frame as well as the glass? I had my glass bust on me so I took the frame to a local glass shop and they fixed me right up.

Not sure the difference between a 93 and 94.

If you get it from a local shop the glass will not be Tempered but will be raw glass. From a safety standpoint the tempered will shatter into small fragments and be safer than breaking into large shards of glass which can easily cut you or someone.

The frame is all there and still good. Did you have tempered glass done for you?

Call ocean dynamics, they'll give you a quote. The material they use is called, " Poly-cast."
Super high grade plastic. NO distortion, and it will be tinted. I used them. for my curve windshield.

A quality glass company, should be able to to provide tempered glass. For single small glass, you may have to buy the hole panel.

A cheap way, to do it. Go to home depot or lowe's, and have plastic cut to fit. It will eventually dull, (UV radiation, scratch) but it's cheap. (Don't use chemical cleaners on plastic, soap and water only.)

I'll need to find my receipt to be sure but when I took it into them and told them what it's for, they told me what to use.

For tempered glass, the company will have to be tooled up to produce glass for the specific model (size,shape and curvature requirements) for the OEM or for the aftermarket business .
You cannot cut down already tempered glass.
