    Does anyone have suggestions or perhaps a good how-to video or site for replacing the windshield? I've nearly separated the windshield from the Orange car and might have the windshield out of my car...

    What I'm referring to is everything from this point to the body. But perhaps I'm overthinking it. How hot/warm do the heater boxes get? Hot enough to melt ABS?

    Great Job, Brent. Very clever use of the laser level. I don't recall how I did mine, but I think I made a S.W.A.G (Scientific Wild Ass Guess) and managed to get it right.

    If printed in ABS with full to 20% infill, 3-5 top and bottom layers and the same outer layers, it should hold up quite nice. Just not PLA, you don't want it to disintegrate on you.

    Depending on what you consider "small" check out older Miata side lights, or older VW Jetta. That's US based.
