Now that it's cool enough outside to need it again, I finally got around to this project. http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/688353.html

It was TOO EASY!

$12 piece of plexiglass from Home Depot. Bought felt bud didn't need it. Used cardboard template to test in place prior to cutting plexi. I made the width 1/4" larger than exact measurement so walk-thru cushion would hold it in place. Taped plexiglass before cutting. Filed rounded bevel edges on all sides of plexiglass. Edges were so smooth I did not need the felt (simple is better). Easily fits in rear locker on engine wall. Total project time: less than an hour.

Finished plexi dam

Seeing as we are resurrecting old posts I'd like to add that after 8 years and 900 hrs I love my V210 still. That is all, carry on.

I made some wind dam kits for some members of another web sight I just copied what the factory did.I bought some 1/2" aluminum channel cut it to length drilled the mounting holes then put the pieces in the blast cabinet and hit them with some glass shot which gave the channel a nice finished frosted look.Once installed I used 1/2" Velcro the soft side to line the channel.For the wind dam I had a local plastic shop cut them out using tinted plexi.Total cost to make was around $100 per kit which is much cheaper than the factory kit.Here are a couple pics the first pic shows the kit I put together the second pic shows the factory wind dam on the right and the one I had made on the left
