        The return of the pointing stick, very satisfying.

          F@#k bro that stuff is not cheap either. Got reality checked getting some shaped / hard coated / tear - offs included prices for mine recently.

          They say: 200 times stronger than glass. And for a car-related anecdote - you could fire a conrod at it, at 200 miles an hour, and it'd just glance off.

            yep, it hurt. i basically fucked up sikaflexing the panel in - and once sikaflexed, you cannot unsikaflex! normally you can tidy up sika fuckups with acetone/thinners, but that shit destroys polycarbonate. so before the sika went off and made the decision even harder, i just aborted, pulled the panel off, wiped everything down and will just suck it up. lesson learnt.

                LOL I find I'm doing this all the time as well, I know there are a trillion things to do but I'm not always clear about "what's next". Maybe I should start making To Do lists in my threads as well.

                Your list looks suspiciously short though?

                              so this is how the lexan was supposed to be treated, rather than being beaten by a hammer and whacked with an axe

                                otherwise its just too damn dark and cold to go work in the shed at present. i really need to pluck up the enthusiasm and get some small bits done. at the very least measure some stuff so i can come back inside and play with CAD / send files to water-jet cutters
