You should consider Lucite, or for added strength Lucite Tuff. The problem with Lexan is that it will turn yellow wherever it is scratched(on the outside). Lucite does not require a coating to keep from yellowing, and Lucite tuff is nearly as strong as Lexan. I dont know if it's easier to mold or not, but I wonder if the Lucite pieces(commercially molded) are coated before or after molding, and how the uv coating on the lexan will hold up to heating and bending. Just some thoughts, Good luck, Carl

I would love to have TWO, but I'm just another dreamer around



On any case, how about some sun roof panels made out of CF? There are a lot of FC with rusted sun roof panels, a CF one will probably be lighter or about the same weight BUT it will never rust



How does that sound?
