Bring it over here tomorrow after work and we'll get it on. If all else fails, I have a nail gun.

Oh, and bring beer. Will make it easier to use the nail gun.

Oh, and Roy and others:

I tried the stock windscreen with stock brackets (don't have madstad yet) and the wind noise in my ears was horrible!! Even with earbuds and music going.

How does your new helmet compare to your old with wind noise, comfort, weight, etc.?

I love the lightness of the Shoe-ee, but the wind noise is horrid.

The Madstad absolutely works. Especially well with about a 2.5-3" gap at the bottom. Was never a need for more plexiglass than stock. And, low position worked very good. Ask Steel Pony
