      The 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

Hello Jairus,

Thank you for the article on How-To make a Vacuum Former. I am ready to finally build the VF. I would appreciate knowing what thickness plastic and brand (Evergreen, Plastruct,......) you used for the Chevy fender. I also need to replicate some fenders and a hood. Appreciate your reply. Thank you, Davys

Butyrate for windshields and styrene for body parts.

I usually stay with .015 thickness for all as a starting place. Thicker for more structure and thinner for more detail.

Good luck... but it really is very easy once you get the hang of it!

Jairus
