Thanks for the link Mark. That's exactly what I was looking for. I would think that no matter how hard you try, there will always be some artifacts in the surface of the plastic when using this method.

I need to get the plastic to 285F before it sags enough to vacuum form. At 212F the pop bottle approach seems unlikely to work, but of course you and others have been successful.

I look forward to seeing your POP canopy.
