Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

If you can use a router table or a jigsaw and a drill you can do it yourself, as Faster suggests. I did one for $100. Get a piece of plexi - an offcut will often suffice and is cheaper than having them cut a full sheet.

Dow 795 is the sealant of choice - it's what they use to hold the glass in office towers so it should hold a couple of square feet of plexi.

It's an easy job - cleaning the old sealant off the hatch is the slowest part - the mounting lip must be PERFECTLY clean.
