Replacing vac formed windows

1736 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Coides
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.

The vacform 'coke bottle' windows of almost every resin manufacturer do not fit well. Follow the advice given above. It's good. But I use 10 minute epoxy resin. Make sure you scratch off some paint first or your seal will be less robust.

You can also cut out better shaped pieces from plastic bottles and food packaging if you can get the right bits.
