Yeah, your probably right. Actually, the guy didnt even care if i shaped them or even messed with the front side. he was just concerned with the back touching the house for the bank and cutting the height down so the address could be seen. I took it upon myself to clean the front up a little bit but if i took anymore off the face, it would have been nothing but a stick bush. i was trying to keep them as non transparent as possible because of the amount of material removed from the top and back. they were pretty thin as it was. but i appreciate your input and ill take that into consideration for the next go around.
