    What would be the easiest way to replicate the "glass" effect. I am wanting to make a car in glass form.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are all kinds of ways depending on the software you are using. For simple shapes in the Web Graphics Creator, apply any one of the glass effects over your shapes. If you have a complex image, which it sounds like it may be...My suggestion would be to create it in Photoshop, Xara or some other drawing app. if available. Perhaps some of the more seasoned members here know another way.

    yeah it sounds as though I may need some serious help in creating what I am looking for. I would like it to be a profile view of a outlined sports car (so minimal detail), if that makes sense.

    This image below is similar to what I need but in glass form and rounder wheels of course.

    Here's a little something I drew by hand real quick in photoshop, gave it some tubular glass efx. Not sure if this is what you had in mind. I know it needs to be refined a bit.
