    We have been running CanAm cars for awhile. Windows were obviously the issue, especially with models like the Elva.

    I finally got a vacuform machine and I am pretty happy, to say the least. My 350 CanAm now has a decent windscreen!

      So what did you pick up for a machine?

        It's a Chinese "dental" machine, off Amazon. Bed size is about 5x5 so not quite large enough for bodies, but perfect for glass and headlights etc.
        I guess maybe some small 50s cars might fit....... Click image for larger version

          I've had one of those for years, and I bought it just for making windshields. As long as you don't overheat, it does great. I think it is well worth the price.

            Chappy, good job. Once you perfect the bucks. Would you be able to 3d print copies?
            A new industry for you, providing bucks windscreens.

                Hi Frank,
                Yes that 350 CanAm buck was 3D printed. Working on bucks for the 3DP 312P and 917-20 that I have waiting for windows. Then the Elva.....then a couple more.
