Back in the day when I was autocrossing my 65 I made a lexan rear window but I didn't heat it. I cut it from a paper pattern I made from the glass then, after cutting it out I just started drilling and sheet metal screwing it from one side to the other. It will bend easily and look okay for a racer. I was driving it on the street though.
