What Our Client Say's

All I can say is WOW! This was a challenging windshield and I am thrilled with the job done by the folks at UPD Plastics. I went into this understanding that this company has a lot of business and that it would take time before my new windshield would be built. In the beginning I was nervous, and had reservations, but after communicating with the company, I just let them do their thing and waited patiently. Man am I glad I did. This windshield was made to spec! Fits perfectly with no effort on install. If you are on the fence, don’t be, this company is very good at what they do. Thanks guys, I am telling all my boat restoring friends about you. Spectacular job!

I’m Back in the 1980’s ……….
My 1988 Bayliner Capri boat was in good shape overall except for cracked/broken plastic windshields. After much searching for a boat plastic windshield fabrication solution, discovered on-line that UPD could fabricate new acrylic windshields. Sent in the passenger side shield to make sure to match correctly… just received the new windshields in great condition (ahead of scheduled delivery date)… very well packaged and protected from damage during shipping. UPD provided drill bit, grommets, and rubber spacers for installation. Install was easy and the new windshields look great- makes my boat look and feel all like new (1988!) again! My thanks to all at UPD for a great job.

I put my order in the beginning of June and I got the windshield back at the end of October. But this was the only place that I was able to go to get a windshield. they’re hard to get a hold of but they’re honest people. I would definitely go back to him again.

Needed a new windshield for my 1964 MFG, after carefully combing through the site, I decided on UPD. My windshield ended up not getting to them in one piece. Never the less, after a wait time( you are informed ahead of time the wait period, so it’s not a surprise) I got my shield sent
Very happy with it! I expected a bit of fitting,seeing as mine was not intact. Having restored many autos over the years, fitting and very slight trimming was all that was fit like a glove right back into the frame. Brand new 1964 MFG windshield. Even instructions,grommets and a drill bit were included. Thanks guys!

I’m restoring an old Ranger and the original windshield was weathered and had a small crack so I wanted to replace it. I found UPD Plastics and ordered a new one. I didn’t mail in my old windshield because I felt pretty confident about the new one I selected seeing how they give you detailed measurements. The new one arrived in a very well packaged box with the needed fittings (minus the screws which I already had from the old one) and it was easy to install. They even included a drill bit for the correct size. It looks great and really freshened up the look! Nice job UPD Plastics team! I appreciate it!

88 Bayliner 2858 Command Bridge windshield replacement going well so far. They have met my expectations and more when I needed 12.25 width but the stock was 13..they gave me 12.25!!! You do have to have a little faith and be patient as they must be swamped offering a service like no other. Yes SKYE HIGH is going strong after 35 year of owning. We love it. Now the drilling.
