    Getting back to the subject of the taillight boards.

    This plan has fallen through, so I'm again looking at cutting them by hand.

    Unfortunately I'm not able to make my cuts accurate enough using my pen knife. To cut through the material I need to make several passes, and the smaller cuts waver because of it. I'm looking at getting a heated knife, because not only would it make replacing the rear quarter glass easier (see other posts), but it also might cut Delrin better (and, I hope, faster) than several passes of an Xacto blade.

    Depending on the hot knife, you will risk melting the delrin.

    Thanks, I'll have a look at the temperature requirements.

    I wrote that before we talked. That said, I know you're busy with much better things to do. I don't expect freebies, so I don't plan for them. If they show up, great. If not, Plan B takes effect. I need a hot knife to replace the quarter panel glass, anyway. My life's motto is: hope for the best, plan for the worst.
