I tried to get a windshield and windows from Cee Bailey. After a month they cancelled the order. Said they had tooling problems and offered no encouragement for the future. I did contact LP Aero. Contact: George. They have the tooling for the rear windows but you would need to send in the side windows and windshield to have tooling made. Fairly expensive.

Back in the Olden Days (1993), Don Petty sent 200D windows, for making molds, to Aircraft Windshields, 10871 Kyle Street, Los Alamitos CA 90720, Tel 562-430-8108. It was then, and is now, run by Judy Gallo, and has been in business for 50 years. That was a long time ago, and who knows if they can do anything now, but it is worth a try if Cee Bailey is no longer a source. Their website is http://www.aircraftwindshield.com/.September 29, 2017 at 2:27 pm #1051Ed PulliamParticipant
John, on another matter-can you take a picture of the vent and post you mentioned on the hat shelf?
Much obliged.October 30, 2017 at 6:52 pm #1129
Update..I did have trouble with Cee Baileys a couple of years ago, but I can report that I have just ordered and received a complete set of windows for a 200D from Cee BaileyOctober 31, 2017 at 3:58 pm #1130Ed PulliamParticipant
Windshield as well Dan?November 4, 2017 at 5:53 pm #1133Thomas KubeParticipant
Does anybody know if the air Kool scoop vent from various shops fit in the pilot side window?
Would be nice for summer and taxi.

Yes windshield as well.January 18, 2018 at 4:08 pm #1192Ashley WadeParticipant
Hello Thomas. Yes sir, the Kool Scoop fits and works extremely well. Live in Louisiana, so this scoop is a must.
Well Dan, you just cost me a bunch of money. I’d seen your original post back in 2016 and thought to myself that if Cee Bailey ever started production on the windows again that I would jump on them. Mine are in good, but not perfect shape. Just logged in for the first time in a long time and saw your November post about the production resuming. Have a set (hopefully) headed this way. Don’t know when they might decide to stop making them again, so an investment for the future.January 19, 2018 at 2:45 am #1194
Understand. My project is not ready for them yet, but when they said they were making them. I pulled the trigger. Bailey cost me several $ during my last project when they canceled on me.January 22, 2018 at 11:30 pm #1212Ashley WadeParticipant
If you have pics of your new project, sure we’d all love to see them, Dan. Make a new post with them?March 1, 2018 at 1:54 pm #1277Jamon PruittParticipant

Jamon, what’s wrong with your nose wheel?February 10, 2019 at 11:29 pm #1622Jeffrey KrahlingParticipant
I contacted Cee Bailey recently to see if they would consider making 1/4″ side and rear glass for Meyers 200s. They said they could but would not certify it for aircraft use without FAA approval. Is anyone interested in pursuing this? Seems like 1/4″ would be quieter and more durable.July 14, 2020 at 4:49 am #1986Robert CullinanParticipant
Regarding windshields, I’ve worked with Aircraft Windshields in Los Alamitos on a custom project a few years ago. They were good to work with and produced a mold and some quality windshields for the Bolkow Junior.
The best contact there is: Jesica@aircraftwindshield.com
If they made Meyers windshields in the past, they may have the mold. Otherwise, someone is going to need to provide an existing windshield and pay the mold cost. I think I paid $800 for it a few years back.

Windows that are thicker than standard are also heavier, which is likely why there’s an issue with the FAA.
