Default Windshield Stiffener?

Anyone run some kind of horizontal brace behind their windshield to stiffen it? Interested in ideas. Mine bows in a bit from wind speed, and shakes a lot on rough ground. Not hot-rodding around or off-roading so I'm not expecting a lot.

Someone, I can't remember who because it's been over a year now, ran a piece of 1x1" angled aluminum across both front struts where the windshield folds. They said it helpedout a lot.

Got my 4' length of 1" x 0.125" aluminum angle at Lowes, and some flat head screws. Then left the angle in the cart in the parking lot. Had grand plans.

Thanks for the search tip! I'm only 15 min north of you, by the way.

Done. Ran a strip of the soft side (the "vel") of Velcro on he angle to pad the windshield.

Backside. Not sure I need screws on the folded pieces.

We cut the front tab off and screwed thru the tabs, but I like the way you did it better. Either way, better than a bouncy windshield!

I found that stiffening the bottom solved the problem and kept the bar out of my line of sight. I used square aluminum tubing across between the uprights with hardware corner braces screwed to both pieces. Then added weatherstripping foam tape to keep the windshield and cross brace tight together. Works well and the brace provided a sturdy mounting point for an acrylic dash tray.
