My 68 Trade Wind had the ribbed plastic rock guard. It was discolored and cracked. After checking the price of a new lexan replacement I decided to fix what I had. I sanded fir front and back, with progressively finer sand paper and the discoloration was removed. Next, I used West System epoxy and fiberglass cloth to cover the inside and back edges of the rock shield. This fixed all the cracks and reinforced the flange that is riveted to the aluminum frame. I did have a few bubbles so looking from the front is not a perfectly even color, but it is still translucent. Not perfect, but a heck of a lot cheaper and a 100% improvement over the way it was.
