Help Needed: Best way to cut plastic winshield?
Posted 18 September 2012 - 03:04 AM
I am sure this has been covered before, but a search didn't turn up any useful results.
I want to remove / shorten the driver's side door "glass" on the 1:24 Porsche 904 GTS I am building. I want the "viewer" to be able to get a good look at the interior without the reflection of pastic in the way. The formed part has botht the door glass and the rear quarter window as one piece. I want to remove / cut it in half without damaging the plastic.

Cover the whole part in masking tape.
Mark your cut on the tape.
Set the glass on a piece of foam or wadded up cloth to support the part.
Cut with a good sharp zona saw.
Sand the cut edges before removing the tape.

Great tips. I am going to try both ways.
Jantrix, what type of Zona saw? There are many on their website.
