Hi Chaps,

I've currently got some old sidescreens (metal frame job) fitted. They dont fit properly in line with the hood, the plastic has gone hazy due to spilling petrol on them and they are just a bit knackered all round. So I'm after a few suggestions...

I had an plan to cut really long/deep (Lexan?) wind wings with a bit of rubber along the bottom edge (without a frame) and use them as side screens instead. The existing wind wing hinges, air pressure and the hood itself I think should make a reasonable fit.

The only downside I can see is running without the hood on they will look a bit daft. However if i could work out some way of having them fixed to the hinges with a quick release clip I could swap them out for the normal ones easily.

Any thoughts or even better suggestions on a quick release clip/bolt?

Cheers

Alex
