My ruined bubbly version from .060" PET-G is quite strong. No complaints there. I doubt that it would ever break in service.

you looking for something like this -

I like to form these with boiling water instead of a heat gun (because I don't HAVE a heat gun). Now that i have the CNC router, milling out a real nice form from scrap 2x4 cutoffs should make for some real nice forms. If all goes well with the POP, I would like to do a nice canopy for the new fuse. The green bottles make for a nice tinted look.
