I assume you are referring to clear Perspex for windows.  Solvents and superglue (ACC) result in the Perspex going milky in the area affected by the glue - not necessarily just the joint if there is any over-run.

I use a product called Micro Krystal Klear.  It is an adhesive, rather than a solvent.  It is milky white in the plastic bottle, but dries clear, making it perfect for windows.  It can be applied to pre-painted surfaces or to raw plastic surfaces.

I got this product from a nearby hobby shop (in Adelaide, South Australia) which specialises in model railroading.

I must say that this product looks and smells just like ordinary PVA white woodworking glue - it may be worthwhile trying wood glue on some scraps before buying the MKK.
