Hi fellow modders,

I am looking for material to make some custom headlamp covers for a C5 Vette so that they are clear. I am wondering what material I can use to make these. I was thinking of clear plastic sheets, but are they bendable, don't form white streaks under stress while bent, and can hold their form?
