I did not see the car he was driving.

The DelSlow spoiler sure looks interesting. Something four times the size out of a clear material sure would be worth while.

My plastics guy could fab something up, he does all sorts of things for people. Sure would be a change from the typical display stuff he does involving bending plastic using a torch. I bet many local shops would be up to it if provided a template in cardboard or other material.

Yea this is one of those cases where bigger really would be better. I wonder what something like that would cost. I wish I had a plastics guy.

Take whatever shape you want (shown is Thee Template) and lay out a polygonal mesh, using triangles, diamonds or hexagons as you prefer. Add darts in your layout, one dart per hexagon for instance. Then cut and draw the darts closed or lap them. It would produce an approximately compound curve with minimal seamage.

An interesting means of joining the clear material might be https://books.google.com/books?id=pg...=PA63&lpg=PA63 Radfast memory plastic.
