Hi Guys, I am sure this has been discussed here before, but I couldn't anything when I did a search. So, what is the best way to fix the "upswept" front fenders on the Polar Lights Torino's? Hot Water? Hair dryer? Any tips would be appreciated!

The current issue of Model Cars magazine has a feature on the Petty kit. It addresses the fenders. And also has some commentary from moderator TomM. Good stuff

Either method will work. Take your time. Back toward the cowl the under fenders kind of end, cut reliefs one per side perpendicular to the fenders. Use the hood as a guide so you don't move the fenders to far down. Once you get the fenders where you want them, you may have to round out the openings a little so it had the right look.

I cut mine on the red line with a razor saw.
The material taken out by the razor saw was enough for me.

Looks good Pat. I really got to get my butt moving on the two kits I bought from Wallydog. Also, thanks for the link Tom, lots of good tips there. thumbsup
