    2004 Hydrostrem Vegas who made them

    Who was the builder of the Streams in 2004, and where were the built? I have one that I need a windshield for. Or any source that might be able to supply on.
    Any info or leads would be appreciated.

    There are probably people on here who can tell you who made it, I am pretty sure it was after the real Hydrostream folded, and it is a quagmire after that. What I am fairly confident to tell you is that whoever did it is no longer in business. I had a guy in Davie, Florida make me a new windshield for my Eliminator--it was pure plexiglass, no frame, and he was going to use my old one for a pattern but it turned out he had done one and had the pattern. Do you need the frame or just the glass? I will try to look up the name of the company--I put it in a reply on here in the last few months, but I will be darned if I can find the name in my computer.

    Found the other post:

    If by Lexan you mean clear/smoked/etc, this guy is a one man shop, really busy, but he seems to have a million molds/jigs (way more than in the website, I was going to drop off my broken Eliminator windshield for him to see if he could duplicate but he already had the jig for it).

    That will be one of the "new" Vegas boats right? The curvy one? Jim Contzen (sp?) was the owner/builder at that time. Chub Bryant at Stoker owns that stuff now, you may contact him. Failing that UPD may be able to help you out. I know he makes nice 'shields for the classic 'Streams, I have one and several other members have used them as well...

    Yes, need one out of Lexan with no frame. I do have the mounting hardware and a few broken pieces of what is left.
    Thanks guys for your help.
