I had to make lexan boat molds at my last job and it was easy. I wish I still worked there to get sheets of lexan.

Try these guys, they even have 3 Ohio locations. They are one opf a few I've found that sell lexan down to .030/.040/.060 and actually have sheet available big enough for 10th scale cars, 4x8 sheets though.

I used to pull HO slot car bodies all the time.


As for the paint, will it effect your mold? If so I'd try some enamel thinner dabbed on it with a brush. Chances are, judging by how it's painted they didn't even use the right paint.

Ive heard that chrome can be taken off rc tires with non-watered down simple green overnight, just soaking. Thats what I would reccomend, that crap is strong. Soak it, if stuffs still there it should be relatively loose, just scrub. Im not sure about this, so maybe someone can concur.

Dude that Iroc is actually pretty sweet. Would look good with a set of HPI 5 star rims in chrome to offset the body. AS far as pounding out a new body, I am interested to see what and how you do it. Hopefully you will post some pics and such sort of a how to on how you did it. Later

This is both exciting, and depressing to me. Very interested in the project, but pissed its an Iroc as I am a 5.0L fan, and can't find that they ever made a 5.0L body. Good luck on the project. Iroc, or not LOL!!!!!!!!!!!
