Lol! Thanks I'll keep that in mind and file this information away in a safe place
I've decided to go with a partial Helm enclosure made out of 40G strataglass in three panels
. One in the front of the helm and two that curve partially around the sides. Three zippered panels
so they can all be rolled up if needed. I'm also putting a roll up sunshade with the breathable mesh at the back of the raised helm that's supposed to block out about 80% of the UV and you can still see through it. Product is called Phifertex Plus.
Cockpit area will have the standard canvas/screen full enclosure
Thanks everyone for your help
