  1. i dont want to rivet the vinyl and paint sticks to it if you sand it before cutting
  2. i will use a combination of methods: i have drawn certain panels in illustrator to cut them from thin vinyl. i will scribe other panellines and use a rivet wheel where applicable. stay tuned
  3. 150 grams of tireweight will do, more so because the pit assembly, resin seats, canopy and props will ad to the forward weight
