    From past experience over the last 13 years I have seen a few posts about dust in the cab and dirty filters. Folks have gone on to install particle separator on their buggies and they seem to work but are bulky not to mention expensive at $399. To $500.00 depending on who you buy from.

    I am thinking about an inexpensive spoiler idea such as this from Amazon: Fontic Deals 4.9ft (150cm/1.5m), Universal Environmental-Friendly Rubber Trunk or Rear Roof Lip Spoiler.

    I recently saw a post under this topic:
    Back Draft Dust Cure?
    His rear air deflector looks like a great idea, but I haven’t had a chance to get one built for my two Polaris units. His idea of using clean air above the roof to form a curtain of fresh air behind the cab seems to make sense to me.

    I don't think there is such a thing as inexpensive when it comes to this idea. Thought of 1/8to 1/4 inch aluminum. Need to pay for a whole sheet just to get 24 by 48 inchs. then I thought of acrylic again need to buy a 48 by 96 inch sheet just to get a quarter sheet. Then it needs to be bent. I guess I will keep an eye on the local metal places to find a piece of scrap aluminum that can be bent for less than $90.00. I would really love to use the acrylic that was heat formed with a 12 inch front and a 45° bend for abut 6 inches at the back end, I want to mount it with 1 inch and 1.5 inch sigh standoffs.
    Any thoughts or ideas where to get either without spending $150.????

    When I made my windshield, I found a third sheet of lexan on ebay at a reasonable cost. Find another person that needs some and split the cost. No matter these darn toys aint cheap!!
