Perspex® acrylic fabrication specialists Project Plastics completed an egg-celent project in time for Easter after being asked to help restore car screen windows for 3 promotional Crème Egg cars.
Originally manufactured in the 1990’s, the cars had fallen into a state of disrepair and required a lot of TLC to get back on the road.
The cars needed to be renovated for work this Easter and the Project Plastics team quickly got to work thermoforming the 6mm Perspex® clear cast acrylic windows.
Project Plastics were approached to restore the glazing on the vehicles which not only required moulding into a concave shapes but each then had to be trimmed to the exact dimensions of each bespoke car.
The images below show the restoration work including the vast improvement the new windows (right) make to the vehicles.
A little more about the cars:
There were 5 egg cars produced from 1989 until 1994, two yellow MiniEgg cars (since scrapped) and three Crème Egg cars. Converted from Bedford Rascal Vans, the van bodies were removed and a space frame and fibreglass shell added.
3 cars still remain, 2 are now used at various events including promotional and charity bookings whilst the remaining car is nearing completion after its restoration.
