Custom Material :  How do I make it transparent?

OK first off.....I know how to make a part transparent.  This is not what I want to do.

 

What I want to do is make it so that every time I assign a particular custom material to a part, it makes the part transparent.  Similar to "Glass" Material.    I already have this material copied....so I want to know how to make an already copied material transparent.

 

Is the ONLY way to do this to copy an already transparent material and then change all the properties?

 

I even changed the appearance tab to show "Frosted Glass", which is tranparent, however, it does nothing to change the transparency of the current body that I am assigning it to.

I feel like I have tried everything.
