Transporter is on the fritz again, Sonic Crescent Wrench to the rescue! I put the etched lines on top with the buttons, ridges up and chopped the corners to remove the radius. Went with the smaller size for the buttons thanks to the unanimous votes. Used JB ClearWeld 5 min epoxy in the fillet clamped handle and crescent in jig overnight to cure. The clear grooved buttons were glued on with G-S Hypo Cement.
Thanks again @jonpaul0151 JP for the generous goodie bags at our recent prop party and to all who contributed in this thread. Have fun with this nice kit, for me it’s much more enjoyable to assemble as opposed to an already built up version, this allows for easier modification. Hope this thread proves beneficial for research/development and kit construction for others with them.
So anyone know if a windshield repair shop can render the extra etched line invisible? Perhaps even an acrylic nail salon could handle this task?
In conducting some experiments with scrap acrylic I don’t think regular old clear epoxy will work sufficiently. Seems like the glass pro repair shops use a special epoxy that requires a black light or iron to cure.
