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

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
