Exclamation Rear dino screen

Hi
right the next subject is the rear screen. I know the real dino's had a rear screen made from lexan (trade/brand name but in reality another name for perspex). Superformance have recently added these to there e-catalog but at 400 +packing and shipping +vat, quite an investment!!
I'm quite a hands on guy and will make the required templates and jigs to form the screen.What I need is info on heating and shaping the perspex.
Or if there is anyone already out there suppling them.

Default rear screen

Hi me again
I'll have to check the IVA manual again.Hopefully the rear screen doesn't require
the dreaded E-mak too.Forgot this on the first post.

Angry rear screen

hi
it seems that the rear screen will also need e-marks so the next question is who supplies perspex or plastic glazing with an e-mark.
It seems the power that be dont want home builders to buld anything. or they are in cahoots with just about everyone to keep pricing us out of our garages.

You'r quite right, if you can't ban it outright just legislate it to death.

Default Rear Dino Screen

My rear window is 'perspex' (or similar) but I had it made from the original 206GT's rear window which was glass. (I loaned the glass item to a plastics company who duplicated it in plastic)...
