    Yes, the window section was tinted with a very dark tint so you could only see through it when the insides were lit up :)

    There is a place online you can order it, I will look at the link. Any speciality plastic shop can get it for you, I buy mine in full 8x4 sheets.

    Locally I pay 75 USD for a full 4x8 foot sheet... but a 2x4 foot sheet costs nearly 40, it all depends on the size. I pick up locally so I do not have to deal with shipping.

    I'm working on it - it's TWENTY ONE pages long :(

    There's 1000 lines of text which don't linewrap yet now have to, so I have to backspace at the end of each line :(

    There's also 237 photos, 169 of which are the "wrong" aspect ratio for porting, so unfortunately it's going to take a bit longer than most of the other articles. But I'll be sure to let y'all know when it's there - it won't just sneak into the Archives (not after all this work!!)

    as for the tinted plexi... 75 USD?! that's a lot. I think i'll just get window tint and scrap plexi :-D

    thanks for the help though... :)
