Alrighty. how's this?
« on: Apr 10, 2018, 05:18 PM »
I got this plastic from work (for 25 cents, too) and I decided to try my luck finally and see how this would work for armor. I'm not 100% certain, yet I think it's PVC, if not something similar. It was a display sign once. It's 3mm, and I had to try this at least twice because it was easy to cut in the wrong place. What do you think? would this hold up? or break to easily? (because it can if you hit it right) And I know you guys are hesitant to click outside links, yet photobucket doesn't work like it should anymore so I used a different image host service, and this should be ok.

If you hit 'Embed Codes' on that site and use the BB code, you can embed the pic on the thread, like so:




If it was a display sign, it's pretty definitely PVC, as that's by far the most common sign plastic. Even if not, as long as it's smooth finished or can be smoothed, and can be shaped with heat it'll do the job. At 3mm, if shapeable it oughtta work out well for you.

Oh, didn't see that. Thanks. and yeah, thanks for the info. this stuff still cracks relatively easy so I'll be getting plastidip or flex seal and hopefully that will solve that. Thanks again

If it was an old sign, may have gone brittle from UV exposure.  Would recommend bondo over plasti dip, for the cracks.  If you're going to plasti-dip or flex seal anything, do a test piece all the way to your finished paint and post a pic here to make sure it'll work out.
