Is There a suitable kit-based replacement for R/M's wrinkle-wall slicks? I know there are resin ones out there but I can't afford to order any and was wondering if I have something in my stash that will work.

The Monogram Stinger has wrinkle walls. Other than that, I do not know.

Yeah...I'm working with the Cop Out kit. The problem with them is that they did all four halves wrinkled in the same direction so they are only accurate to one side.
