luvrbus,

   If you click on my prev posted picture (enlarge) you will see a clear strip all the way down the side.
   just above the loafers. My shop is the same way (clear top strip)
  This is not fiber glass and was told I would need to replace that strip every 10 years.
   Heavy hard plastic don't know carbon style from what I have.


    FWIW

Skip n, the ones that came with my building I ordered from Texas came from Texas Green House 1-800-227-5447 the stuff is not cheap but I didn't want to get on the roof every so often and replace the sky lights the name of the products is called  Polycarbonate comes 8 ft sheets  made by GE have a good day 

Skip a  little more info on the panels  that I have they are corrugated,UV protected , coated with silicone, light transmission is 87% and bronze in color also available in clear and opal plus special order colors  and the smooth panels come in single ,double or triple wall  I got this info from a label on a sheet that I had left over and it was made by US Global Resources  not GE as I stated  but it has a GE sticker on it

I have been planning since December '06 to build a bus garage, but I have been unable to sell my house thus far.

With the price of fuel I'm wondering if it is even worth building a bus garage as who knows how long I will be able to afford to fuel the bus.

Not sure I would use or ask for polycarbonate especially clear. Yes it's very tough stuff. I know! Our race car bodies are made from it. The problem is it scratches VERY easy! If you have leaves, tree limbs, and any dirt etc., blowing over the poly, better known as Lexan, you will soon loose your light from it turning dull!

Actually mine are very dull looking ... They still seem to let a lot of daylight in.
