The dodger probably only has a couple of mor eyears to go so i thought that that money would be wasted.
I would agree. We replaced our dodger and all the cockpit canvas
. When the glass looks muddy brown the fabric
is probably fragile and the thread is UV damaged. Just taking the dodger apart might finish it. I know it did ours.
Personally, I would not waste any effort on the current
dodger. The process of removing the old glass could finish off the dodger. It won't matter if you try it or a shop tries it. A good dodger fit needs to have just a little bit of stretch to it. I seriously doubt even a shop could just replace the glass then come back and actually install it. The odds are they would start to take it apart and give you the phone
call saying it's a nightmare. The exception would be if it was made by the really crappy extruded glass that looks wavy when new. Good extruded or pressed poly would hold up as long as the fabric
worked no one would sew
You'll end up tossing the whole mess and be with no dodger at all. A dodger is just something you really need. Being able to see though it and have it take a beating is what they do. It may not do either well enough now. Glued on glass sounds like a wasted effort too. The structural part of the dodger is already shot. The dodger project
may need to move up in priority.
