    Lexan is OK for some or racecars but for streetcars in my opinion is not good. I have done several chops and my first Fiero Chop Top I tried Lexan and it was scratched the first day. I actually had DOT glass side windows made and had a group buy on them. I was not happy with plastic windows but some are OK with it.
    My Chop Top I am building now has all Glass windows it is a Ford Truck. I would check around and get glass made it might cost more but I think it will be a better choice but if you insist on lexan I made a mettle template and laid the lexan on it and used a heat gun and let the lexan lay on the template as it heats it will lay down. If you get it to hot it will form bubbles in it so it is a slow process if you have a oven big enough you can control the heat better. I made the template with more cure but the windows in the Texas heat still went other ways when installed.
    good luck and Chop on.

    Graham can you send me the pictures of the mr2 with the roofchop. I am really curious. I know the rofchop is going to make the car look so much better. Please send the pictures to, david.schaekers@versateladsl.be .
