I was reading up on how to make the clear sidemarkers for the p10 and went to The Home Depot today to find they don't carry anything that you need to make them. Does anybody knowwhere to find the plexi glass and glues etc.....
Thanks.

uhum the topic is clear sidemarkers isnt it? lol um those lenses they have are to make like red and orange ones and they dont even have the glues or knives that i need. for the most part i think i can find the plexi glass, but i need the diffuser knife and glues for em. thanks for trying :p :p

Goto the site, look under plastics..they have all kinds of tools, adhesives, etc, etc......I havent seen the lens material, thats why I sent you to raidantz, they have it.

The best thing to do with plastic, is to rough cut it, and then use a belt sander or file (lots of work) to get it to the final shape. Some of the glues are tricky, especially the solvent type, those are one shot applications, mess up and its not good. Both sites will have what you need, just do some research...

[sarcasm]
Or do you want us to make it for you as well...hahah

Um yea I spent hours researching this shit but so you dont have to.... I found out there are a few different kinds of plexiglass or different names that it is referred to ex. acrylic and the diffuser is just a prismatic plexiglass and yes you can order it from tapplastics, just call the 800 # on their webpage and they will get it for you. There is a $25 minimum order on things though. Have fun.
