    If the display case has the pegs and holes for rubber banding the model down, use Goody hair bands as they come in clear.

    Charlie : Vacuum form the first windshield, cut to size, place on mold w/double side tape and shot another windshield, this will give you a smooth surface on the windshield as the grain is on inside of the windshield. When I saw the putty on the first on I was going to tell you that would show
