Tell me what kind of foam you used on the body porotype.
I'm building a 1/5 scale hot rod and want to build a glass body.
thanks for any help

there are not many old skool craftsmen machinists left that can use manual lathes, mills etc and turn out high tolerance and awkward shaped work(ie no cnc) but you my friend are definitely one of them... mundo respect to you Vass!!!
