    I had a little problem with the paint and had to strip the body.  I'm waiting for the new paint to arrive.  The hood and trunk are OK so I didn't strip those.  As soon as the paint arrives I'll paint the body and put the decals on.

    Ron,  The body looks real cool!  Get a can of Filler primer and shoot a few heavy coats on and start sanding with 320 or 400 grit paper.  You will have to repeat this over a few times.  I talked with some guys on the TDR facebook page and they said using superglue is harder and details will get lost.  A high build filler primer is easier to use.  You actually don't need to clean the White Strong & Flexible(nylon).  Tim who runs TDR said you only have to clean the Frosted Ultra Detail material.  Don't bother sanding it until you apply the primer.  The nylon doesn't take well to sanding.

    What's a stronger bond? Aves Epoxy Sculpt or JB Weld?
    I need to install a plastic DC Power jack in a model.  I picked up Plastic Surgery CA that's formulated for dissimilar plastics to glue it in and I would like to pack either Aves Epoxy Sculpt or JB Weld around the jack for reinforcement.

    Ron, The TDR 2013 Pro Stock Camaro I posted above is the 1st 3D printed body I got.  The White Strong & Flexible(WSF) material does have a grainy surface.  This attached picture shows the grain.   I am using Duplicolor Filler primer on the body.  If you also got the WSF material you don't have to clean it.  Just spray on high build filler primer and sand.  Don't even bother sanding the body first, just spray the primer on and after it cures sand the primer.  I am using 400 grit paper and wet sanding.  This procedure(priming and sanding) will have to be done a few times depending on how much grain is on the body.  As long as you follow the body lines while sanding the details will stay. The 3D printed WSF bodies aren't as easy to work with as a styrene body but after you start priming and sanding you'll see it start smoothing out.  My 2013 Pro Stock Camaro is just about all smoothed out and looks good.  I'll take more pictures over the weekend and post some.
