Help building window well covers out of PVC

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience building stuff out of PVC. Attached is a picture of a window well cover I would like to make. The only catch is, I haven't seen any adapters to make the angles I need.

I'm wondering if someone has any suggestions?

You do know PVC will not be clear will block the light coming in.
You would need to buy a 4 X 8 sheet of PVC at about $100.00 a pop.

There are no "adapters" you simple cut the materal at an angle.
You do know you can buy clear acrilic window well covers, right.
