You'll need a solvent called Weldon. It might cost more for the solvent then for a tank. About $12 a can. A table saw or router will make quick work of cutting it and make for very clean edges. You'll need a few syringes for the weldon.
Weldon is not a glue. It is a solvent. It melts the plastic and then quickly evaporates away. You need to place the pieces where you want them and then squeeze the solvent along the joint, carefully. It will wick between the panels.
Is gluing the right term? Not really, you are welding the acrylic according to definition. But yes it is "gluing". The Weldon will "act" as your "glue". Please understand that it isn't sticky like a glue. It's really thin like gasoline. Essnetially that is what you are doing. You are using a solvent, like gas, to melt the pieces together.
