      When filling holes, its best to start by cutting a piece of styrene Filling Holes in the shape of the hole and plugging it before applying filler. If its a large hole, like the tail light holes on the deuce, glue a piece of flat styrene Filling Holes on the inside so that the filler will have something to bond to. Also, if you're modifying the deuce body, its a good idea to leave the sprue Filling Holes in place as long as you can as it adds rigidity to the body, especially if you are cutting it.

      Most of you probably know all this, but it might help some of the folks who are new to big stuff.

    That's a good one Rick. Any tip is welcome even though you think a lot of members already know it. There's always someone who's never seen it before.
