that won't work water doesn't get hot enough znd the foam would melt. Lexan melts at 380 F and needs a heat gun or an oven of sorts to be thermoformed. It works out well though if you take your time and the moisture level of the plastic has been reduced as much as possible.

A nice side consequence of a fairing like this is that if your visor is fogging up, lean forward and the blast goes up your mouth vents and defrosts your visor really quickly.
