Call Larry Stock at Pantera Parts Connection, Carson City, his dual business is Polymer Plastics Corp. and he has done Lexan windows all cut and formed to the correct curvature.

Guy's, for 2012, i bought a piece of lexan, same thickness as the glass ( or close ) , cut pieces little larger than the quarter window glass, clamp the lexan to the original quarter window, put them in the kitchen oven ( wife gone shopping ) at proper temperature, let them cooled and trim them to correct size. You can look for the correct temperature on internet.....around 350' as i remember...
Be really careful whether you actually have Lucite (polyacrylic) or Lexan (polycarbonate). The oven process as described works fine for polyacrylic and only needs about 150F.

Lexan/polycarbonate on the other hand softens way above the boiling point of water, so if your Lexan piece happens to contain a little moisture-as most does, doing this will generate steam bubbles inside the plastic and your part will only be good for an opaque shower door.
