What shapes can laminated safety glass be cut into for a windshield???

Hey guys just a quick question............

So what limitations are there on having flat panels of laminated safety glass cut for a windshield???

I'm thinking a flat bottom, a long curved on the top and rounded corners........ Is that out of the question, are you pretty much limited to straight lines or???? I've also been thinking about doing a 2 piece "V" windshield, in which case I'd probably use 2 pieces that were more of a trapezoid shape, maybe with round corners at the "A" pillar.

We have a local glass shop cut us custom sized laminated safety glass windows for sand blasters, but they are all rectangles, so no curves there.....

My wife is going to be going to the glass shop later this week, so I'll be able to find out for sure then, but I guess I'm just impatient and am wanting to think about what I can do now....... LOL

Thanks for the help guys!

I had a flat piece of safety glass cut to my desired shape at the local auto/plate glass shop . It had a concave curve on the bottom. They did it for $25.
Pretty sure they can cut what ever tou need.
