how well does the bending go? i've never worked with acrylic before, so I'm not sure the best approach. Is it best to go thin, bend, and add the refelctive material? Or is it better to go thick, and pull a foghorn and use hardware to fix everything together (and then add reflective material)? Is it just a heat and slowly bend along a nice flat edge?
Wouldn't really mind going thinner if it'* a viable option - it'* a lot cheaper than the 1/4 inch stock, and the overall price is somewhat high for this project already...
