Replacement Screen for Portlight in Head of B29.9

Does anyone have ideas where I might find a replacement screen for the small opening portlight in the head of my 1979 Bristol 29.9? Thanks! Bruce (Put-in-Bay, No. 153)

If your port looks like this drawing, then it is a Rostand (not Ronstand) that went out of bussiness years ago. Probably wouldn't be too hard to fabricate one.

You might be able to cut the window out, and re-bond a new piece of Lexan in. At some point, the question becomes how much time are you willing to spend, considering the price of an entirely new assembly?

Is it just cloudy? You might be able to sand and polish to remove the cloudiness, which is probably affecting just the surface.

I thought the OP was talking about the bug screen, rather than the glass.
