    Oct 20, 2008, 9:45 AM - Black translucent plastic to cover chest lights...? #1

    Where is the best place to get some? I'm sure at a craft/hobby store, but in what section? I've looked but couldn't find any, and when I asked I had a hard time getting my point across so the person couldn't understand what I was looking for.

    Thanks in advance guys,
    -Pete

    I used leftover visor material from when I cut mine. You could also try a report cover/sheet protector in a darker tint.

    Hmm, didn't think of that. If I can't find that report cover stuff ( I know exactly what you are talking about thanks!) I should still have visor scraps laying around.

    The material is called clear PVC or clear acetate, and it can be found at an art store. It is usually used as a stencil. They come in all colors (red, green, orange, smoked, etc.) They also come in clear. If you can't find them in smoked, you can get the clear one and apply a window tint to the sheet and cut it to size. Hope this gives you more options
