Go to glass shop, it's not plexiglass as plexiglass scratches too easily. I forget the name of the plastic but it's what racecars use for windshield and rear window. Plus it's a little more flexible than plexiglass so if that window is curved some it would be able to be bent to shape better.

That's the same plastic I was talking about. Once I saw the name I remembered. Depending on if the windshield place has scraps big enough it might be cheaper. If not cut up one of those helmet shields.

Thomas,

Those Seed-Vision windows are something I normally make and sale. If you are not in a hurry, I will send you one in the mail, but it will be about a month or so. Currently rearranging the shop (nothing is in its place right now) and trying to get caught up on some personal projects.

The polycarbonate used in racing is commonly called Lexan, which is, of course, a trade name.

Thank you, Joe! I’m done planting this year, so it will be several months before I’ll need it again. I’ll take you up on that offer. :thanx:

You are correct,
I'm just an ex nuclear engineer that's taken every chem class (tip never take bio-chem I & II as it messed up my 4.0 gpa.)(on a side note: how can kids now have greater than a 4.0? That's perfect, 100% you can't make over that. They now give extra credit so the kids grades don't actually reflect what they know. Give em a trophy for just showing up) but I digress..

I'm sorta a nerd n want to know what it's made of and it's properties not a trade name as so many chemical compounds have multiple names depending on who made them. I don't care if it was Bayer, Dow, or some other chemical company that made it. What is it and is it the best for the buck to use.
