Quote
This is the first part of a multipart guide dealing with the construction of the merliniplexi 2.0 Plexiglas case.  In this guide, we will be discussing stand-offs and how to glue the outer panels of the case.

way to go, bubba.   a plexiglass case how-to is long overdue.   (i enjoyed the disclaimer, for obvious reasons)

i am not seeing the pics yet.  i am wondering if i need to grab a plug-in for firefox?

questions--
-what method did you use to laminate the two panels?   i would think that capilary action might not do the job.   i understand that there is a dipping method for this.

-what method did you use to hold the panels at 90 degrees while bonding them?  did you just use a square, or did you build a gluing jig?

You would be suprised how well capilary action works.  It sucks up the cement like a sponge.

I used a square for the rear and side panels.

The front of the case:  how did you get the color like that.  Is it dark plexi or tints?

It's what is called bronzed plexi.  Its tinted all the way through rather than on the outside like you would see on a car window.
