Man...that looks perfect!! Great job...!
How are you heating it? With a heat gun? And how did you cut the shape ? I mean, did you make like a paper pattern or something based on the shape of frame where it goes?

I traced a paper pattern first..Then taped to the lexan. Being sure to leave an 1/8 inch for oops around main line. Then My LP torch for heat. Held way up high.... and just helped it when at the crucial temp. Hope this helps buddy.

Sweet! Thanks for the headsup buddy!
Last question for now...how thick is the lexan? I will like to try making the windscreen for the Sandman as that area on the body is more or less completed...!

OK..got it.
The first attempt was from 2 mm. I really like the looks of it and it was a quality sheet purchased from RPP Hobby. Comes double sided with film too.
And yes on the third attempt.. 1mm thick. Looking at your ride.. I think the 2 mm would be best. It looks right if that makes since, and you wont have such a corner to try and fit.

Wow 2beers, I have just been catching up as I was away for a couple days. This is really more and more impressive as you go, this wil so end up as a top build! Loving the pic with the bumper mocked up, and the windshield looks right at home. Fantastic looking. Have you found what material you'll be using for the windshield rubber seal?

Thanks Fred. I'm going to look around locally at the craft stores this weekend for some Gasket materials..Be it the jewelry section or Electronics. Also on the hunt for some materials for the saddle blanket seat cover.
Here is a quick mockup with everything done or started again. Even the marker lights in the hood...
