With the mold ready, I pre-heated it to 200 degrees in the oven prior to doing my first pull on the vacuum form. I made two frames from MDF that sandwiched a 11x12 sheet of .020 PETG held together with a bunch of binder clips. Placing that assembly on the oven rack under the broiler, i heated it until it began to sag about 1 inch below the bottom of the frame...moved it out and quickly centered it over the mold, turned on my shopvac and...voila! Instant canopy!
