Replacing vac formed windows

I am currently working on an Ocar XJ12C and I have now reached the stage where I need to sort out the
windows. The kit comes with a vacform as you would expect but whilst the body is very good the vac
form is IMO a very poor fit and I wondered what other methods for marking out plus what materials
and fixing adhesive folk use??

I am thinking along the lines of cutting the front and rear screens individually.The side windows should
be easy as they are flat.

I did PM a member who posts regularly on here and he was kind enough to give me some advice and I
have had a bit of an experiment but my skill levels are no where near his.

Hi Eric,

I had the same problem with a Teamslot Manta, followed the advice from the helpful guys on here and my windows turned out really well. I used both PVC glue on half and then epoxy on the others just to see which was better. Both had their merits... One tip which was extremely helpful was to lightly bend the screens over a screwdriver handle or similar to shape it and that made heaps of difference. T'other Phil is spot on about using an emery board. He told me the same. Good advice.

Good luck

Phil T
