Home Made Windscreen/ Fairing?

So I have a huge ZTechnik windscreen on my GSA that does great pushing air away from me on the highway. However, I have bumped my forehead on it pretty good a couple of times while offroad. I have heard horror stories of Baja/Dakar racers dying from a windscreen slamming into their throat, and considering my itch for off road; Im craving one of those cool small fairings like Wunderlich's flowjet or even Touratech's Desierto.These tiny little pieces of plastic are hundreds of dollars that I dont have to spend.

Can I make my own small plastic fairing? Have you? If so how did you do it?

Im thinking about getting some black plastic and using my heat gun to bend it to join with the standard BMW windscreen mounts. Ive used this method before for hand protection.

Any thoughts?

It won't cost much to piddle with a piece of lexan or a Dollar Store trashcan.
