What is the Scuderia rear window made of??

Hi everybody

Any of you guys know what the Scuderia rear window is made of...perspex, plexiglass...what??? The reason I ask is because the one I just bought has a razorblade cut in it that I'd like to try and get buffed out or repaired somehow...and would like to be able to tell the bodyshop what the material is.

Portions of the cut could be as deep as 1 MM....does this sound too deep to repair?

And by the way, noooo, I didn't do it!!! :-)

THANKS!

-George

Thanks Stef :-)

I'll be bringing it to a glass guy today to see what he thinks...hopefully there's some way to repair it.

Good luck George , you're right, better give this in pro hands because PC is a difficult material to work on especially when you have such deep scratches.

Thanks Stef :-)

The scratch was too deep to fix and make invisible. But the problem has been resolved :-) Thanks for your input!
