I just went threw this, Plex vs Lexan vs Lami vs MR-10 vs tempered, ended up with tempered, the sq/in area of my ports are close to the sq/in area on your PSC and it would take a major impact to shatter the tempered and far less of an impact to crack Plex,Lex,MR-10 or lami

I installed all new gaskets, used SS screws and a clear silicon sealer, then flooded the port with a hose, out of six ports, I had one leak

I would go with the bronze fasteners, cause nothing looks cooler than a patina port

1955 Blanchard 51 Custom ( I got a woody )

1974 Ranger 33

Lord, give me coffee to change the things I can change and Rum to accept the things I can't
