shape of convertible rear window

Hi,
I have a 2000 Camry Solar convetible, with a broken rear window.
No money right now to pay someone to replace the window, soI'm hoping I
can do a decent job myself, leaving the curtain in place and pop-riviting a piece of Lexan where the glass used to be.
But becaue the window is a little curved, bent, when it's in place, it's hard to draw a pattern from a friend's 2001 car (which looks the same as mine did.)
Do you know anywhere I could get a pattern for the rear window?
Is the bottom edge of the glass a straight line? or does it bow? If it bows, how much below the corners of the window would you say the middle of the bow is?
On the 2000 and 2001, the window looks rectangular, unlike later years when it's oval, with clearly rounded corners, not just the last inch, like in 2000 and 2001, but so rounded that the top curve on one side merges straight into the bottom curve on that side. And those windows are bent too, because of the way they are held in place by the rear window curtain. But even though it's less in 2000, I think it still has an effect on the pattern, the shape of the window.
Thanks.

I googled for a window pattern and got a hit on toyotalexusforum.com .
Just one line, but he had the exact same problem I did.
I don't have a lexus, but I went to look anyhow. What a let-down.
It was my post here.

I've decided that I can't just create a paper pattern and transfer it to the lexan. I have to transfer the paper patter to something stiff, like two pieces of coroplast taped together, install that in the car and make alterations to make it fit, and then transfer that shape to the lexan. I'm almost done.
