Thinking of replacing my M5 clear windshield with a gray tinted one when I remove it to put in the new carbon fiber glare shield and replace the headliner. The question is this Cee Baileys or GreatLakes Aero?

I don't have any experience with Cee Baileys so I can't say, I bought my tented windshield from Great Lakes. They were great to deal with.

I have a tinted windscreen, it’s pretty much impossible to tell.

The windshield comes out easily. Going back in is another story. Plan on lots of fitting/trimming/fitting/trimming/fitting/ trimming... Be careful installing the screws in the door pillar as there are wires and fuel lines in there! Cant' say about the glare shield as i didn't have to remove mine. Kind of wish I had as I would have cleaned up the wiring while I was in there.

It would be a really good time to do an avionics upgrade... Just saying.

Hint first make a paper mask templet of the windshield before removal to aid in fitting of the new windshield
