    LOF,AND PPG,have sites,but it dosen't help becouse there's no way to determine the bow curve etc,to find the one for the testarossa,itook a roll of 4 foot wide paper to the junkyard
    made paper patterns of some windshields i thought might work,measured the width at the top ant bottom from indide the car straight post to post not along the curve so that i could approxamate the bow back at the shop by formong a piece of wire to the width and curve,it saved a lot of trial and error.

    I just did the paper thing but went to the Tampa airport parking lot and not the junk yard. Finally found a few that are close enough but decided to use the one MadMike suggested.
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    WEDGEDRIVER,if you want to use plexi,tape some posterboard together lay it on the car to the curve you want,cut it out with scissors,and you have a pattern for the plexi,call a local plastics or sign making materials supply house,and get a sheet of plexi and make your own.
