You deserve an A for effort. At least you tried.
To bad about the static electricity.
If you don't have a glass cutter you might be better off having a glass shop cut out the odd shape. Unless you have a small belt sander with a carbide sanding belt.
Glass cutter = $2
Glass shop $3-$5
cut fingers and broken glass , priceless
Good Luck

Jon Oh Jon they make antistatic spray you can spray it and you'll not have that problem .

The plexiglass charged when you pulled the plastic off it, But you can get some antistatic spray and fix that problem.........

I recall that using the cloth thingies that go in the dryer will discharge the static as well?

Antistatic measures may work for the short term but wiping the face or a low humidity day could cause problems at some point in the future. Thanks for the suggestions but I'm going to cut a proper glass lens so I don't have to worry about it.
