Well, you see Puma. When you begin the road to being a man... hair starts to grow in seemingly funny places. With todays increase interest in making men look like boys your first thought may be to copy what you have seen and shave as much of that as you can. Reality is. You want to be your own man. Shave what works for you. Maybe just a trim rather than a shave. You dont want to look like any other out there.

Hahaha... That was great Tuls. I did want to shave things that hadn't been done before, but I'm realizing that my ideas are a bit outside my ability, so I think I'm gonna tone it down a bit (I got a little... erm... overconfident after I got the wheels on the car back in April and said some stuff that really wasn't thought out). I have those ebay headlights with the turns in them, so I'll be using those.

Any particular place to find the bits I need (plastic, plastiweld, etc)? Will home depot do?

No. They don't really have a bodywork section.

You can go there for some of the lower grit sandpapers and possibly the orbital sander I guess.

internet or a local industrial plastics store.


i have a secret weapon to shaving ABS without a plastic welder. makes things much easier, but its not easy to get. However you can get a plastic welder at harbor freight and sheet plastic on the internet though
