Oh shoot I did miss you and you were the first one to respond.. Lets let this thread ride out for a little longer for the other tagged people to respond and I will probably be able to get a larger sheet if more people are interested. How many 12x12 were you wanting? Ill just take one instead of 2 so ill have one left on this order if no one else is interested.Ok, I thought I was on the list, but I guess I missed it somehow?
Shouldn't be needed.You can take my spot
FREE PLEASE jk
Same here.I’m willing to go to just one sheet if that helps. Just let me know.
Well with the responses I got from my RSQ8 post my responses will be limited in this forum. I will say this does cut just like normal acrylic, it shapes well and depending on the manufacture of the IRT acrylic it will correct it’s own imperfections. Polishing is like if you’ve ever polished your headlights in a way... I’ll sand down to 1000 on the edges and then use a quality detail polish.
Its not that simple. the pigments used Perspex do not block IR light where as traditional pigments do block IR light. traditional colored transparent black or smoke plastics will use carbon black as the pigment unfortunately carbon black absorbs IR light. Perspex will be "clear" to IR light but appears dark in the visible light spectrum.What's the difference between Pespex and let's sya Lucite, isn't it just colored acrylic sheeting?
That's easy. I found a plastics workshop that made a CAD file of a particular car part I took in. Got the spare part from a junkyard. Handed it over for the shape to be copied. File created. Handed over the Perspex and some cash. Done. Basically carved it out of a sheet. By this I mean I actually got left with a complete surround cut out from the leftover offcut. Looked like they cookie cut the shapes out of the plastic, but would have been cut according to the CAD file by machine. I then crafted the junkyard part to accommodate the Perspex. Went back to the shop, asked them to drill symmetrical holes where I wanted. I fabricated some custom brackets to attach the Perspex to the car part and bolted it to it.Can you explain more about how you got it CNCd from a flat sheet? I'm in for one sheet, but still have no idea what to do with it.
Ah I see what you're talking about.Ok, I have friends who can laser cut the Perspex to a CAD file. But how do you get it bent and shaped correctly to fit the rear ALP RX sensors on the back of my trunk so they look more like 'stock' trim?
Make a buck, lay perpex heated to 300f on buck and it will lay down to the shape.Ok, I have friends who can laser cut the Perspex to a CAD file. But how do you get it bent and shaped correctly to fit the rear ALP RX sensors on the back of my trunk so they look more like 'stock' trim?
