Interesting you mention that. I got the windshield on my 85 4000Q
replaced 2 years ago...it still had the original. The original was
starting to get a little pitted from sand and difficult to see through
at sunset/sunrise. When I got the 'no name' replacement (I want to say
Sekurit) it looked great for about 6 months. Then it became far more
pitted than the original did after 17 years! It seemed like the new one
was softer or something. No other variables were changed either
(commute, climate etc).
my 2 cents.
