    still waiting for some random parts and now looking for a door trigger rod... ugh!
    thankfully my '40 started acting up so I have yet something else to do

    the double take at the 115/68 blood pressure,
    161 cholesteral and 4.775 1AC sugar was
    priceless....

    healthy as a hippo. just too dang heavy!
    are hippos healthy? they're one of the angriest creatures on the planet.... and I thought they were called Vets.

    continuation of breaking the warranty


    clever - now to figure out how to shorten the push
    and my most favoritest job ever... not

    and finish work on the panel (cover the holes)

    it would have been nice if this set of instructions had been included.. ah well, fortunately it's really expensive and they use FedUp

    so it's easy - acrylic will scratch your head when it breaks.... polycarbonite will bruise you.... but no scratches.

    depends which you have to drill.... acrylic is a pain... outside of that, lexan is not UV stable and will only last up to 10 years.

    Lexan is a brand name for Polycarbonate sheet. It features excellent shatter resistance and resists scratching in normal use.

    Plexiglas (brand name) or plexiglass (generic name) is acrylic sheet and was invented in the early 1930s. It is extremely clear but somewhat less impact resistant than polycarbonate and is somewhat more prone to scratching.

    Which is better for car windows? Ya pays yer money ya takes yer chances.....

    acrylic....Plexi and Lexan are a brand name for polycarbonate (they're the same thing)

    We used Lexan at work for safety shields and it was a LOT tougher than plexiglass which we used for windows and some other application. We eventually stopped ordering plexi and just bought Lexan though it was quite a bit pricier - it was worth it. Now I have to go look up the formulations.......
