    Default Lexan thickness and shipping?

    What thickness of lexan should be used for doors on model 4. Local supply house says it comes rolled up which sounded odd to me, anybody have any experience with that? Jim Iím sorry I know you already told me the thickness, I didnít write it down.

    I used .093" on the windshield, but .060" on the windows. .060" will roll up in about a 8" diameter with no problem. JImChuk

    Might struggle with bending the windshield. I know it's a little bit of a fight with .093" thick. I used ratchet straps, and left the protective paper on to keep from scratching the lexan. JImChuk
