wood must be pretty good, it bends back, if it snaps all you need are a few nails and your back on the track!

All I'm saying is there's 'works', and then there's 'works well'. How old are Morgans and Model T's? I've seen people use Lexan, wood, probably even paper mache' has been tried: So, what's the point? Too many atrocities are created by people trying to save a buck. What's wrong with Fiberglass? Cheap, common, flat, dimensionally stable, with an inherent flex that, depending on chassis design, can complement your suspension: Also workable with hand tools. Would wood work? Yeah, but c'mon gents, be real: I stand by my original assessment. Chris

Didja see the guy awhile back that was trying to make a whole BODY outta Styrene? (Snicker, chortle, wheeze ) I think he was on here for a bit, very odd chap: Used a number instead of a name, "666" or something (Probably a Satanist or? ) I wonder how that body came out.....Oh well, I'm off to finish the tyres I'm making out of condoms: I figure they'll start out slick, but then turn real sticky in a few minutes. Plus, they'll glow in the dark and the nubs for tread are already on 'em! Chris

I'd say this thread is going downhill, but it started off at the bottom of the Marianas Trench anyway

may be going down hill but if the plywood's thick enough it'll float!

Spambot. Look at but don't click on the "helpful" person's link. Haven't seen one of these for a few months.
