You know, normally I'd think riot police and tear gas, but in this case I think they're just prepared for their mate's blown seal. Just look at the white smoke pouring out the exhaust!

I've certainly seen a fair share of windscreens with fabric on the bottom in France and Italy. Not sure where to buy them, though.

It's coming from the wrong side though. Suspect by the masks it may well be teargas.

looks like the White House front gate, and those are DC cops dispersing a crowd in the '60s.

Of course it's tear gas, I was just making a joke!

Next you'll tell my young daughters, as they wake up in the next hour or two, that there's no such thing as the Easter Bunny.

At least that way I'll get their chocolate... Clown emoticon

if you really want you might be better to cut a cheap screen then riviting on a bit of vinyl
