lexan windows for any car step by step...

What I like to do is cut it on top of foam like this. You can find these things. at home depot i've had this for a while that's why it looks so gross but it originally came as a four foot by eight foot sheet the size of that lexan so every time you buy it's pretty big through the years, mine is falling apart but this will save your life man and make it so much easier to cut things with the dunya puzzle we need power junior what the hell is wrong with you man how you gonna turn around if you don't plug them in cause i thought you plugged it in in junior all good all good s o i cut the end of the legs to smaller sizes to make it easier to work on we don't have this big old sheet sticking out of the end uh we are cutting two windows that's the reason i have two pieces stacked up here and they're too big for the window we're cutting obviously so I'm screwing the two pieces together so every time we go to cut this we're going to cut both windows at once and co n them bolted together you don't have to worry about the two pieces moving and distorting so now what we're going to do is make an actual template of the windows, for the most part lexan windows will look exactly the same size and shape as factory windows. and how we gonna make the stencil is transfer tape bro if you don't know transfer tape is what you use every time you make decals it's just a roll of paper but it has an adhesive on the back and what i I'm going to do is put this across the window and really make an outline of the window and then I'll show you what the next

step

is once we're done try to cover the whole window if we can remove the window so we apply the tape transfer tape to the window and then i used a pencil i went around the edge and just marked the edge of the window, peeled off the transfer tape and then we glued it right onto our material that we are cutting and that is the reason why i like to use transfer tape because it's like a big decal bro so now it's stuck there and i have my line exactly where it is i need to cut now if you guys don't have access to transfer tape i understand comp Let's say that they can use paper whatever they can get to cover the window and it won't move and just make an outline around it if you're going to use paper you can use a spray adhesive on the back of the paper and then just apply it to the material the same way we did here just using spray adhesive, you know what?

I'm saying and you don't have to worry about it being on the lex and because it's got that protective layer right there so now we have our jig designed basically ready to start cutting mate I'm just using a regular old jigsaw and as you saw every time we cut these pieces, this foam just makes it so much easier to cut because every time you cut things with a jigsaw like in an I don't know, like horses or something like that, the materials move around and everything, this foam cuts it out. makes it so much easier because it's sitting here flat and then this is thick enough for the blade to go through it makes your life so much easier man if you can find this foam I bought it at Home Depot years ago and have used it a thousand times, but we're going to cut the looks in the windows, but they're not. finished but no sure as hell or not there is a very important

step

to make these windows complete to make them look good that I have seen a lot of people skip for whatever reason you would think heck yeah these are done right, just put them on top of it e and it's all done right screw them in yadda yeah but hail man what factory windows they have that make them look normal there's a black border going around so we'll have to do that but first I'll show you as. to clean up your cut because every time you cut these things, I don't care how steady your hand is, there's going to be some little ripples and stuff, so we're going to go ahead and clean this up first and then I'll start doing the black border now, obviously take your time when you're cutting, you want to try to follow your line as straight as possible so your windows aren't all curvy and just weird and look like crap you know what?

I mean, if you take your time, you can make them look pretty good without having to do this step, but I like to go back and try to get them as perfectly straight as possible so it looks clean and professional. You know what I'm saying, what we're going to do is take the d.a. I've got 120 grit sandpaper here now and then I'm going to go through my cut with long quick strokes just to smooth out the cut because they really look really nice but you can use this to round out the edges like this corner here is supposed to have a little bit of a rounded edge and I'm going to go ahead and use the sander around that edge and then you can go around these areas here and get them out a little bit tighter and basically clean up your cut that's the point of this step here like so I know not everyone has access to a compressor and d.a. sander at home, so if you don't have access to those things, take your time when you're cutting, try to make your cuts as straight as possible and if there's a bit of cleanup, maybe you can try using a file you know I'm saying just a long flat file and just file it down and try to make it look a little cleaner after you're done cutting but as for me I'm going to start cleaning up these c oses so we can move on to the next step so now I've cycled through both windows with 120 and cleaned up all the slices to a point where I'm happy with it now I'll do it. one last pass bro I'm going to switch from 120 grit this is what I was using to shape everything and make it look cleaner now I'm going to switch to 320 grit just to smooth everything out and make it look even better , so when I'm going to go over this with the 320 grit.
I'm not going to lay it flat, bro. In fact, I want to review it. Do this edge and then you do the flat edge and then you do the bottom edge. saying and every time you do that, you're getting rid of the sharp edge here and you're beveling it a little bit, it just gives it a better feel and a better look makes it look a little bit more professional. So now I'm ready to roll up the windows here in the car. I'm going to put them here temporarily so I can figure out where it is that I want. my holes because there are so many options for attaching it to the car you can go ahead and silicone them the same way the factory windows are there you can rivet them what I don't like about rivets is that it pulls it's really very tight, bro and then it gives the window a more wavy look like it has a wavy look it can't be helped either you use screws or rivets but rivets make it 10 times worse bro so I like to use screws like I did on my car we're going to use screws on junior's car but another option you can do is if you get industrial velcro and what you would do is just put one side of the velcro on the car put the other side of the velcro on the window and then velcro here i have never done it that way i have seen it done myself and it works great you would think they would fly but you have to get industrial velcro and stuff is not gonna fly bro trust me if it will It's going to go for that cleaner look where you don't want a lot of exposed hardware, that's what you'd want to do, but we're going for the exposed hardware look. screws with the little beauty washer on the back and that's what I used on mine basically I want to mount the window here and then I'll drill all the holes in the leg sand before painting that way when we're drilling the holes , we don't have to worry about messing up our painting you know what I'm saying and how we're going to do it that's the rolled tape technique what you want to do is just put the tape on an east edge tape one edge down then peel the rest of the tape and wrap it up and you're going to glue the tape back on itself so basically you're creating a double sided tape but it's like a tube we're going to make enough pieces like this so we can go all the way around the seal the window on the right here is our roll of tape around the window sill so what I'm going to do is I'm going to take both sheets one more time and I'm going to line them up and tape them together so they don't get stuck. edan move.
Sometimes you gotta make do with what you got man I found a paper clip and bent it three quarters of an inch so now I can go ahead and set this up here put my marker inside that loop and then just follow around the edge of the material with the marker leaving the line there and that line is going to represent the center mark where we're going to drill a hole for all of our screws so that every time they get in the car, you look at it, the screws will all be nice and lined up with each other and not they'll be crooked or look like that so i like to use something as a spacer whenever i'm marking my holes just to make sure everything will be the same everything will be like evenly spaced on my car the bolts are four inches apart so I thought I'd go ahead and keep it the same for junior's car my little decal squeegee for vinyl is four inches wide so I'm using this and i'm going through and just using this to mark my lines where i'm going to drill my screw holes so i know each one of them is going to be the same space between bad news we lost sunlight hmm good news all the windows are bolted down so now our holes are actually drilled I like to do that before I paint and all because it means you're less likely to ruin the paint after I'm done so now I'm going to go in and mark them one more time with a marker and you'll see that this is why I put the tape on the back. so now every time you mark the sharpie will stand out a lot more against this green tape than it did with this little protective plastic that comes on the lexan ok i marked it i didn't record it because it's so dark in there and you can't see anything so now I can take all the windows close again ok now both windows are checked that's our line where it is we're going to paint this section here black but as you can see because of the metal what's in there it's all very jagged but what I'm going to do is use my two straight edges here I'll basically line this up with that black mark and then cut it with my razor along the straight edge so our lines are straight. able to do the straight lines like this with the straight edge but these rounded corners I'll have to cut carefully by hand and connect the straight lines for the most part then we'll remove this section exposing the lexan on the back so now on both windows i cut off the edge and i have the exposed section that we're going to paint black so now what i'm going to do is come back with this little sanding pad it's basically like the same roughness as a padscotch brite I just don't have a damn scotch brite pad right now so I'm going to use this just doing some light scuffing on this exposed area just so the paint has something to bind to now remember we're painting the backside what you're actually going to see is the front end that's on the outside of the car but these marks that we're going to leave from sanding them down are actually going to fill in the paint you won't even see them but it will help the paint adhere because you won't we want it to flake off and fall off you know what I'm saying so I already cleaned these down real quick which is normal old rubbing alcohol you want to be clean scrape it off get all the dust off then I'm going to paint it normally I would use my spray gun and I would just mix some paint, I wanted to be lazy.
He made me go pick up some spray cans, oh my gosh boy would you look at that? It's almost like we know what we're doing around here you know what I'm saying so look at the damn windows well there it is mate this is how you make some sound windows for your car now basically this works for any thing, just make your template and just follow those steps and that's it, but we're also going to try to make a rear window that's not in this video, but this one will definitely be a lot more difficult since the window doesn't have a frame.
I'm saying I have to be honest. I don't know 100 percent how to do this, but I have some ideas that I'll try it on probably in the next week or so, so keep an eye out for that video. I hope you enjoyed today's video tomorrow when the sun comes up I'll give you a better look at the windows of course at the end of the video if you liked it then smash the like button man peace oh
