Making Windows
Back to Tutorials

To make windows from scratch, we will use blister pack plastic, nearly any flexible clear plastic will work.

Cut the clear plastic a little larger than the window opening, and use paper to make templates. We will make the sunroof and windshield.

Trace the window opening to your template.

Trim a little from the template at a time, test fit often.

Once your template fits good, trace it to the clear plastic; again, cut a little at a time and test fit often.

For the windshield, same steps, make your template.

Copy your template to the clear plastic and cut to shape.

The sunroof and windshield are done, we will add them after it's painted.
