you can get petg plastic from amazon or eplastics.com. You could also try and look for it in your local arts and crafts store.

er... be careful with that if you're intending to melt plastics. they can release toxic gases, make sure to have good ventilation and research the safety of what you're doing.

I live in Vancouver, Canada, and I was struggling as well to find a store with affordable plexy.
Yesterday I was going to the dollar store and saw a framing shop for paintings and photos. I went in and asked, They sell pieces of 1/16" plexy with protective films on them. I paid 15 bucks for a sheet that can produce around 8 visors!
Simply go in and ask for a scrap and they may give it to you free.

if you're making a Thomas visor, what i did was take a 2 Liter soda bottle (clear), cut out where the label covers, bent to shape (took forever to get right), and spayed it with some of this: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/RLL-253256 which i bought at auto zone. and it worked great!

http://www.thedaftclub.com/forum/sho...ack-to-a-wreck you should use a generic brand because those bottles usually are more simple, and don't have those rings in the plastic like the coke bottles
