Re: Shellvalley fiberglass windshield frame
Unless they've changed in recent years, the quality of Shell Valley's stuff is very poor. I bought a Kevlar w/s frame from them a few years ago. The cuts were severely crooked, the gel coat along the cut edges was badly chipped, and the 'glass itself was as thin as an eggshell. I called and complained, sent it back, and received a replacement. It was in worse condition than the first one. Shell Valley wouldn't reimburse me for the shipping for either unit just to add insult to injury.
BTW, unless you're using a hard top full time I wouldn't recommend a 'glass frame. They tend to flex quite a bit, tend to get stress cracks from the flex, and the w/s glass my fall out. They're also a pain to install. Most of the ones that I've seen aren't trimmed for the w/s glass and gasket so you have to trim it to fit yourself. I ended up swapping in a steel YJ frame and I'm much happier with the steel unit.
