Forum Posts, Moderating, Reporting, etc. 12/20/2016The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den

Brian J added a topic in GeneralQuestion about vacuum forming a whole body,,I want to vacuum form the Revell (Monogram) '86 Monte Carlo SS Notchback kit body. I'm planning to do a Local Short Track Street Stock Stock Car, so fine details are not a problem, won't need them.
How would i go about doing this?. I have a large Vacuum Former, and heat the plastic in a regular oven.
Would i be able to Vacuum Form directly over the plastic kit body, or would the heat be too much for the "A" pillars, or roof to withstand and cause damage from the slight heat/suction.
Or, would it be better to make a complete mold from plaster, or such, and make a "buck" to vacuum form off of?.
I'd like to try doing it directly off the plastic kit body to save time.
I have an extra body to try it, but thought I'd try to get some opinions first.
Has anyone here tried vacuum forming a whole body before, and what were the steps taken to do so?.
Thanks, Brian Jurgensen
