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.

The windows are best cut out and fitted as seperate pieces. Place the windows inside the body and mark out the window shape , then trim the window LARGER than required. The carefully retrim the window to fit the opening, take your time!
A emry board for nails is good to sand the windows.
I then use a PVA glue that will dry clear to fix the windows. Micro scale make a good product, but I have found some PVA craft glues are just as good and cheaper.
