Default 1/8" Plexiglas Uses?

I've got 2 strips about 5" wide, each about 3' long of 1/8" clear plexiglas....

And I have no obvious use for it, does anyone have any creative ideas on how to use it for an interesting project? It doesn't even have to be for the car... Maybe a neat way to use it with the LEDs in my car... I can't think of anything interesting.

Thanks

Maybe get some lights and make a box and some sort of brake light with lettering on the glass to say something like 'pontiac' or 'bonneville'

you could cover it with mirrored tape, and use it to reflect your led lights, or maybe cut it to fit in the opening of your headrests, if yours has them like than and put an arrowhead decal or something like that on it.

The headrest idea is interesting... I can also do any kind of custom vinyl decals I want to put on stuff.... So that'* interesting.

While doing some photography earlier today, I think I'll be making an external flash diffuser with small piece of the plexi for my camera.

You probably could make a cai box out of it, add some tubing to grab air from the wheelwell or bumper area and you'd be all set and on the cheap.

I don't think the pieces I have are wide enough to be able to do that well...
