elsolo When you say "Plexiglas" you are just referring to clear plastic panels, not specifically the acrylic plexiglass brand I hope.

Plexiglass is brittle, and only good to about 170* F
Lexan is tough, light, and impact resistant., but only good to 180* F

McMaster-Carr website gives the material properties for most popular plastics, softening temperature and such.

Drumr90 When i went to bolt together none of the holes lined up and to make em line up i had to pull bottom sheild and push cover right up next to batter box. With it bolted like this my battery cable and battery box were gettin all torn up. Thats why i decided to cut it to make it fit.
