View Full Version : DIY part 2`

So I have the pexiglass.

Now KH says not to put it outside (Although there is a nice little indent for it, and I expect I would have water problems if I put it inside). I stlil haven't decided whether I am or not.

I also don't know how to hook it in, I got some stuff (from the same maker as the pexiglass), which says that it is an adhesive (even to things like metal?). So I am thinking of putting it on the outside, with the adhesive.

But any better ideas (or KH, who I saw here when I posted this, why on the inside? how on the inside?)

Plexiglass for what?

my moonroof blew off..

I want to fix it before it starts to suck worse even then it does (rain and stuff are problems)

I suspect you would mount it inside so you don't damage the finish.

wth is a moonroof

Bigger version of a sunroof.

27-11-2005, 13:25:38
ooh shiny

28-11-2005, 00:50:47
actually it is just a sunroof that doesn't open all the way up (just cracks)

so I went over to my freinds lab, and we pulled out his hacksaw and drummel tool

then cut it out to fit into my hole

a lot of dust was created, and while I finally convinced my freind to use goggles, I didn't convince him to find us mouth guards ( he said he never bothered with mouth guards when he drummeled (which is where the dust was *very*fine))

so if I die in the near future, from poisoning or something, it might be from enhaling polycarbonite molecules

tomorrow evening hopefully I will have a phote of the completed roof repair

so yeah.. that is the stuff that they make nalgene bottles out and are worried about its effects..

well, I don't generally use my nalgene bottle, and maybe this just counts as a high dose of it


edit: that might be just after it reacts with sunlight or cleaning fluid... so it might just count as dust? In which case not good, but probably not particularly harmful.

I thought it was carcinogenic - you won't die from it anytime soon.

Anyway, if you want to avoid roofleaks there's always a price to pay.

it is carcinogenic?

I haven't read anything like that.. mostly that it can/does leak something that causes problems with eggs and stuff... or does that mean carcinogenic?


28-11-2005, 03:19:35
I hope I don't get cancer

I should go live on a hilltop somewhere...

Relax man. I was teasing.

28-11-2005, 03:38:46
I think I have it in me to be a hyprocondiac

if I die from this, I die.. ah well

Look on the bright side - you won't be going from pneumnia caught from a leaky window.

Life is problems. Living is solving problems.

Dying? That's the last thing you do, don't sweat it. It's how you live that's important.
