Removable Glass Windshield

Building the cage in my 85 Toyota right now and once its done a new windshield is needed. I like to snow wheel so glass would be my best option I'm thinking. Unless someone can give some insight on how well Lexan defrosts and take the abuse of wipers. I just don't trust it and would think I'd have to replace it every season.
I would like to find a way to fasten the glass windshield in using a high tech fastener on a rubber seal or something of that nature. Anyone using such a thing?

Rather low tech, but what about converting the stock windscreen to a string in/hitch in type?

Nice...: I've got Lexan and it scratches/clouds if a leaf hits it.

I had a new windshield put in right before I finished my exo, it was like $120. Just do that. Lean is cool for its toughness against shattering, but not scratching, about 5 mins of wipers will do it in.
