I have thought about taking a heat gun to it so it will maintain the shape, but then I worry I might mess it up, don't fix it if it aint broke. I went with a 48x96x .093 thickness sheet of Lexan from a dist in Brooklyn Park MN(75 bucks). Thats why I was able to curve it, and with the sheet metal screws holding it in place, it retains the shape. It was a pain in the ass cutting it with just a dremel tool and by myself, though. On the one side I ended up cutting my car, didn't bother me though seeing as I paid 1300 bucks for it in 07. Had this been a car in excellent aesthetic condition I would have been more careful.

I am assuming you are the "guy" Shags was telling me about who had a cracked kammback? I could help out, I know how much a pain in the ass doing this stuff is, I've done 100% of it all by myself. Although it shows in a lot of areas lol. IMO there is no point spending too much time on this rusty turd.
