P.S. to the above: In case your going to try this (propane torch on plastic), We went to a automotive heat gun instead - much better control over heat and no carbon flecks from propane.

Lexan will absorb water and it is possible to bubble it, but unlikely. If unsure, put it in an oven at 200 F for a couple hours. The polycarbonate will be formable about 325F. Industrial heat guns can do it over a form. You could give it another aneal by heating it after it is in the frame. Do not expose polycarbonate to solvents or gas or it will crack.

Thanks for the tips everyone. Any suggestions on what to use to make the frame?
