Please if someone can help me to apply a Plexiglas texture to my object. I haven't use maya for a while and now I'm kind of lost.
Thank you.

Typically Plexiglas has a pale white cast to it, with a very slight pale yellow tinge. The older it gets (actually the more and longer exposure to UV) the more yellow it becomes and fine hairline cracquelure develops.

Start with a glass shader. reduce the reflectivity a bit (not quite a matte finish but less shiny than glass), and change the green cast (cuased in the real material by its iron content) to pale white-yellow.
