Jo I have the double bubble sharkskinz screen

I will take it off the body work and bring it to the track.

You can borrow it.  It's scuzzy but windproof.

I'd give it to you but then I'd have scuzzy sharkskinz with no screen

Since the ZG screens will clearly be 3-4 weeks out until after the season is over, its seems I have no choice but to swap the bodywork for something that uses a screen I can get from multiple sources.
