    Hey ez, I've seen some pretty cool looking ones made from aluminum. Or you could go with a plexiglass piece or a Lexan plastic. I believe the Lexan stuff is alot stronger and will last longer. Cut it to size, heat and bend. You may be able to find Lexan at a local Home Depot or Lowes. I've also heard that L & L Marine has stuff like that 714 777-5505.
    You gotta a pic of that Starbuck? I always thought those were cool looking boats! Is it the tunnel?

    Thanks for the info !, no it's not a tunnel, if I ever get it back from the paint shop I'll get some newer pics on, there are some in my galleries of when I started, not to many people heard of these things, including me, Thanks Rob....

    ezstriper I was going to ask the same Question. I got a 87 Kachina and Louie wants 300+ bucks for the acrylic ones he makes. Any one know if this is the goin price? Heck I can bend 1/4" with a propain gas torch if this is true.
    Nice Jet there ezstriper.

    Although I favor the tunnel, that boat still looks pretty cool! It has an interesting looking bottom from what I can see. The outside strakes look real aggressive like on the old Rogers. Post some new pics when you get them and good luck on the splash shield.

    Hey all
    If you use the lexan (GE trade name) or polycabonate (same But GE dont get your $$) you can cold form. You will not need to heat it to bend it. Besides it a buch better at fracture strength.
    Hope it helps.

    EZSTRIPER, did it a few weeks ago, used 8th inch plexiglass, make a template with cardboard to get the bend angles for the guard, make a jig, I used a 2x8 that was laying around, used wooden dowels to bend to, used a heat gun to heat with and then cleaned up the edges that I cut with a propane torch, these were not all my ideas most of them came from the boards here, total cost about 20 bucks,plus 12 silver bullets, the only thing I should have done was use 1/4 inch my guard is fine but maybe a little fragile. hope it helps.......Vic

    I have an 1/8" plexi one on right now. I fell into it trying to avoid my OT headers. Cracked on the curve. Ill try to use the broken one as a template
    I'll make my own. You all have inspired me I want to use 1/4" this time. Not to sure if I could cold roll the .25" tho. I'll try the heat first. That 1/8" splash gaurd has taken some hits before back at the beach when it gets crowded. Thanks all.
