Possible RMR/Windscreen fab

I have been playing around with the idea of using an RMR style bar to mount a portion of the soft top onto to make a somewhat permanent windscreen. I know that this could be done in a much easier way, but what fun would that be? As I hardly ever remove my Lemans hardtop, I want a unique look when it is topless. Thought of chopping up my soft top to remove the rear glass and some of the surrounding canvas then figuring out a way to mount it to the bar. I borrowed a picture from lilgoats install and VERY POORLY 'edited' it to show kind of what I mean. I figure since the window on my soft top fell out again, i might as well play with it a bit With scissors... I was hoping to get some opinions and maybe some more ideas of how to attach the window section to the bar. My first hurdle is finding out if they even still make these bars or where to find one used or whatnot to see if i can even do this at all... either way it'll be entertaining

That bar was manufactured by Rhys Millen's (spelling) fab team. Don't think they're available anymore.

Interesting concept. Have you seen the custom bar that Norm made for a couple of cars
