    Hi guys

    Well ive been doing a big search around local and national companies to try and find someone who will do 1-2mm blue transparent acrylic, unfortunatly i havent found anyone!
    So im left with making just normal acrylic blue, i thought id use (sorry dont know the name of it) some blue transparent sheeting (kinda like projector paper stuff school teachers use???)

    But my problem is how can i stick this to the acrylic without seeing any glue bubble's or markings?

    Hopefully you guys know what im on about! or have other idea's on how to make it blue transparent?

    cheers jack

    why dont you just tint the plastic? They now sell all colors of tint (yellow, red, blue, green, ect) just follow the instructions on how to apply it and you shouldnt get any bubbles. Be sure to buy a squeege and get some dish soap when you buy it :D

    I feel hurt....wait I hate inches too.

    For some reason they still teach it in our schools, when in fact America made metric official back in the 70's (according to my sources)

    Damn government...can't get anything done. And Bush better be out of the White House next year...vote Howard Dean! He's the geek's choice! :thumb: :geek:
