A few things to consider when making a screen as I've thought about making screens for the roadster but glass does'nt travel well with couriers!
How tall are you while sat in your seat?
Have you allowed enough space early enough in your build around the scuttle to fit the wipper motor and demister assembly?
What angle do you need it to be at to get in with out hitting the frame every time?
It would seem that the screan is pretty much a custom part and some thing that will need making to your own design. The one thing I would say is if you intend to put side screens on,either fit a fine nylon mesh or polycarbonate screen behind you on the roll bar.It cuts down all the vertex effect that comes in from behind and makes for a more civalised drive.

Is there an IVA/test for builds of this nature in SA and if so what do the regs say about w/screen's.
