Memphis Shade's Big Shot Windshield 650 Custom pics inside
Put this on today.
First, I stripped the clear coat off the brackets and polished them myself. When the clear starts to go, they look like crap, quick. Having them stripped allows them to be polished any time they need a touch-up.
Stripper applied (after dis-assembly of the locks). It worked quick:

Before and after. The one in the foreground still has the clear coat. The other has been stripped and polished. Subtle difference, I know, but maintenance will be easier:

Install was a breeze. After a dry-fit, I assembled it with purple Loctite (low strength) on the fastners. Additional photos in the next post:
