Custom acrylic grip panels?

I have a M90 Emancipator frame on my automag I want some custom acrylic grip panels for. I have already been in touch in stinger and they do not do what I want. I'm looking for fluorescent green acrylic so the edges seem to glow. I know people used to make them but I can't find any information about them anymore.

If you're just looking for flats, you should be able to do a good set yourself for cheap.

So. Thickness wise what would be best? 1/8th" 3/16th" or 1/4" thick? Measuring my angel grips they are 1/4" at the thickest but the edges thin down to less than 1/8"

If you want the edges "sharp", you'll want a thinner grip. If you're planning on beveling them, you can go a bit thicker.

I really think you're looking at 1/8th being reasonable though.

Hm, I may try playing with a half inch bevel or so. Problem is I don't really have a proper shop... but I do have a dremel.. I'll have to see what I can come up with to cut/shape the acrylic.
