Bag for windscreen?

I'm wondering if anyone knows where to get a bag / protective case for the lexan windscreen? I found one on Ebay, and have bid on it, but if I end up not winning it, where can I get one? Dealer? What's the cost for a new one?

If I don't win the bid cheap, or can't find a new one... maybe I'll have mom whip something up for me... she's a sewing wiz! Maybe get some heavy denier ballistic nylon, then line it with microfiber, with velcro closure!

Mine came with the car. Of course that doesn't help you at all, but I figured I would mention it anyway.

I would go for the Mom solution. You can't beat custom parts.

Hey Fray, did you look in your front trunk? You may have one already!

Why do you need one? I have never used my windstop storage bag yet. Don't know when I ever would.

Yes, have mom make ya one!

No bag in the front trunk. I took the spare and tool kit/jack out to get the spare back in it's bag. Only had that stuff and a couple Kalifornistan plates in the car when I got it.

If I don't score the back on Ebay, I might see what my mother can do.

It would be handy for me since my car is a daily driver... definitely NOT a fairweather only car... so the windscreen will be removed a lot of the time. It will be nice to have it in the car, but protected, so that I can easily put it on.

Why don't you just leave it on the whole time? My car's a daily driver too and that's what I do. Beats having to put it on and take it off every so often.

Dude, that is hysterical. Where did the quote come from?

Grizz, someone posted the quote on another forum... unknown source, but they thought it must have been a marine in WWII somewhere in the Pacific Theatre!
