Cool Soft Enclosure Windshield replacement.

I Bought my 2010 Teryx in October. I bought the soft enclosure with it.
After having it and riding quite often I quickly learned I didn't like the distortion of the plastic view. Especially in rough places where I need to be able to see better than it allows. Today I bought a piece of lexan polycarbonate 1/4 inch sheet, and cut me a new front windshield. It looks incredible! Prefectly clear viewing. However I put the soft enclosure back over top the new windshield that I cut out and then cut out the old plactic one.
Now it fully enclosed, and has a good windshield for less than 400 total enlosure windshield and all. After riding it I noticed that the wind is getting through the soft enclosure hole I cut and going right inside the vehicle with me through the top of the windshield creating a pocket of air up top basically.
Does anyone have any ideas how I can seal the area that i cut the plastic from around the windshield? Double sided velcroe doesnt seem to stick well enough for the air pressure.

Anyway you can tuck the enclosure behind the windshield and clamp in place with windshield clamps? How did you fasten windshield in place?
Another thing you can try is taking the cab to canvas place and get them to sew in bead. Same idea as RV awning bead(take a look for reference). You can purchase alum moulding from most RV shops. Once you have moulding mounted to edge of windshield slide in place. Not sure if this will make sense without pics.
Also just ordered Lexan came in today. Ended up buying roof from EMP and back Lexan windshield from dealer. Slick set up so far. I think for doors I will be going with Shockpro doors.
How do you like your cab so far?

The Soft cab enclosure is great, minus the plastic windshield it uses, there's no real need for spending a ton of money closing one in when you can use these for so cheap. I will add some pics in the morning to help. The cab cant be on the inside of the windshield, i would have to poke holes in it detroying its ability to be water proof.i have a really nice setup, as soon as i can get this window issue taken care of it will be perfect. = )

when i had a soft roof mine did same thing,wind would get caught under roof and wanna blow it off, i got a piece of light alum 48''x14'' and bent it around the top front of the cage and over the windshield and used 1/4 20 bolts to affix it to windshield and zipties on back side, sealed holes in canvas top with a little silicone, plus this shield helped save soft roof from hits from limbs and such since it was on leading edge of cage

I would love to see a pic of how you did it.
What I'm trying now is sealing the cab with RV gasket seal. I hope this works..

I had a soft cab on my Mule, I cut the soft windshield on the top and sides, then added a zipper on the sides and velcro on the top, so when needed I could unzip the top half of the windshield and see out over top. It worked good on warmer days as well.
