I used clay to support the canopy when it was time to cut it out.

John, that is a great idea! I have been toying with the thought of filling it with mold-making silicone. Clay is probably easier. I’ve also read/seen/heard that aN easy-does-it Sanding on a flat surface will ease the removal.


Mostrich, already did “crack” on the kit part...

Hey Lyle, I never use knives to cut vac forms. Try using nail scissors! I keep a pair for cutting thin plastic forms with slot cars.

That makes sense. I have a pair of suture scissors.....about the same size.

Say, by the way, how is the car coming? :lashed:
