curved windsheild installation

Recommended Posts

About a month ago I ran across a front plastic panel which came off it looked like a 60" flat panel TV. It was at a thrift store and I got it for $2. Whala, I had a windsheild. Iv'e posted pics. The lower side has a up slope to it's support frame. This is so my hinged hood will open without hitting. The windsheild is curved more at the bottom then the top. Curving it gives a nice flat undistorted looking screen as apposed to flat installations that always look warped. The other thing I think I'm finding is that a lot of the wind goes around to the sides. I haven't been out behind others kicking up dust but I hoping this will help keep the dust from curling back into the cab area from behind. We'll see. I do not hear any exrea wind noise from the wind hittig the windshield.

Beautiful, please post some photos of the way you put the hood hinge in and attached the hood to the hinge.

Was the plastic already curved or did you just flex it into a curve.

Thanks

Jeff

The plastic was flat and I just bowed it. I've included pics ( again not correctly) of the hood hinge. I used a stainless hinge I had around that had 3/4" legs on it but 1" legs would be better. I like a strap hinge as its the strongest way to go and it spreads any stresses over a much larger area. You have to use pan heads or counter sunk heads so the legs of the hinge can get close enough together. The hood support rod is a peice of 6061-T6 aluminum. this is quite strong and also springy. It's bowed so when I stow it, I just pull its end down against the crossing angle peice, flex it straight and tuck it behind the little tab I welded on.

If your looking for stainless continous hinge, call MSC supply. Their a huge company with a 4- 5 thousand page catalog. 1-800-645-7270.

      Disclaimer:  My spell checker thinks it knows more of what words I want to use than I do.  Typos are not my fault.
      This is a general comment on the support I received from Joyner-USA in Phoenix, AZ.  I needed one headlight assembly for my Renegade because the mounting pin was broken.  Duct tape and bailing wire held it in place for a few years.  To my surprise, they had them IN STOCK.  I bought two and kept one of  my good old ones as a backup.   They completed their move to a new address at 2415 S 18th Pl, Phoenix AZ from their former Riverside location.  As a gift, Jake gave me two T-shirts.  He said he as most of the parts for my  2014 Joyner Renegade.  I looked at his yard and he has several engines and UTVs in stock, mostly the 1100cc engines and several Renegades.  Maybe a Trooper or two was buried in there somewhere.  Everything was crated and outdoors.  I hope he moves his inventory indoors, out of the weather.  Their website says their hours are 9:00AM - 5:00PM but their actual hours are 10:00AM - 5:00PM.  I arrived at about 9:20AM and no one was there; place locked up.  I was a little upset that with a 9:00AM opening, someone should have been there.  I was concerned that I made a 70 mile round trip for nothing.  Fortunately, one of his employees showed up and told me of their later hours.  So, everything turned out fine.  I got the parts I needed and two T-shirts.  This is based upon a one time, 1st time experience.  I hope future vists are just as good.

      My grandpa has a Yamaha wolverine side by side. It has a solid rear axle.  The problem is it tears up the yard when he turns. Question is has anyone or can he make it into a differential by anyway gear box swap or change some gears. Thanks if you can help!
