Highlander windshield upgrade

Postby Sloney » Thu Dec 06, 2018 11:24 am

Does anyone know if Ben Schneider is selling Steve D’s Highlander windshield upgrades? Or how to get a hold of him??
Thanks!

I don't know the status, but definitely get one if you can. I just installed mine last week and it is far superior to the factory supplied lexan.

I am hoping for one as well - but will be doing the glass very soon, so may not be ready in time.

I want one just for a spare, as availability seems like it could be problematic in the future. The other option is make my own mold and oven, but so many irons in the fire...

Hey guys. I still check the forums a couple times a week, so dont say anything too bad about me. :)

I didn't end up buying the mold from Steve, too many irons in the fire already.

I believe Kris Griewahn bought the mold, though I don't know the status of the operation, I know he was busy building a couple airplanes. He does check the forum periodically as AccentAir. Last time I talked to him, we never got around to windshields in our chat so I don't have any more status updates for you.
Best,
Ben Schneider

No worries. Not looking to point fingers. Just wanting a windshield is all. Hope everyone’s builds are going well.
Cheers
