    Look forward to an e-mail from me in August. I'll need the spare tire well cover replaced with a lexan (that's plexiglass, right?) thing.

    Brandon- you should make a large lot of adapters for 2 din spots to fit lilliputs in, and sell them in a little store or somthing. (or some other types of generic plates). I think it would be great to have a 2 din adapter for lillis that wouldn't void the warantee by opening them.

    That's a good idea. My lilliput should arrive in about a week, I'll check it out then.
    I never thought of how many emails I'd get after posting the first of this thread, I feel like a champ now when it comes to adapting the Opus 90W PSU into a computer case

    can I get all of my car windows replaced with lexan?

    seriously, are only flat pieces appliacable? I got some curved pieces that would be nice to get done too.

    Sorta.

    Lexan is a trade name for polycarbonate.

    Plexi-Glass is a trade name for acrylic.

    polycarb (lexan) is a much better choice, but is more expensive. It is better because, amung other things, it is stronger, less brittle, doesnt expand/contract as much under heat, easier to machine, has higher resistance to deformation under load, and is crystal clear. Even more clear than high quality glass.

    However, like i said, it is more expensive.

    Yes, actually you can.
    The higher end Lexan is fireproof and low cal. bullet proof (to an extent). Some military fire fighting vehicles have these windows, I know this for a fact considering we have a large military contract to cut them
    My GTO has lexan windows, you can order them from alot of aftermarket auto retailers that sepcialize in repop parts for high performance autos (drag racing, circle track, etc)
