How to form a Lexan rear window?

Postby Prinz » Tue Jan 17, 2017 8:41 pm

I'm building a hillclimb car that will look vaguely like a 1960 NSU Sport Prinz but will be powered by a 4.2 liter Audi V8 mounted mid engine. Most of the body will be carbon fiber and I'm trying my best to keep things light. I'd like to change the rear glass to lexan. Any racecars that I've had in the past that I changed glass to plastic, never had much of a tight curvature so it just got riveted in. This car is different and will likely have to be heated and formed somehow. Anyone know how this is done? I'm not very computer literate and when I attempted to attach a picture, a message said it was too big. Once I figure that out I attach a photo.
