    fabricating light lenses, heating plexiglass

    HI I want to copy some taillight lenses, can anyone clarify what is the best way to construct the 2 part mold for the lenses and what type of clear resin and colorant do you use to get a finished lens? thanks. also what is the best way to heat plexiglass over a form to shape it, what is the best material for the form to be made of and what should it be coated with so the parts dont marry, thanks

    Alumilite, Smooth-on, BJB, Adtech, you name it. There's a whole bunch of materials, I use them all. I'm too busy with my own projects, I'm afraid I don't have the time to help you with a mould. There's a great how to section at Alumilite that is a great reference.

    TAP plastics can help you too I did a lense for an old Chrysler and they helped me mold it and everything.
