This is a printed set of Body Panels for the Element Gatekeeper.
IMPORTANT: The panels come unformed. You must heat from the front ridge of the roof, sides of the hood and nose of the hood. You can use a Hair dryer on low or a small hobby head gun to get the job done. Wear thin canvas gloves when forming the panel to prevent from burning yourself.
DO NOT OVER HEAT OR THE PANEL WILL SAG IN THE WRONG PLACES. ONLY HEAD ONE PORTION AT A TIME.
Roof Forming: Secure the roof in place with screws first then gently head the front and bend and hold with your gloved fingers while it cools.
Hood Forming: Secure the front of the hood first. Once the front is secured, gently head the nose and bend like the roof. Once the nose is formed, gently warm the area near the cab screw holes to form the hood and allow the screw holes to dip down. You may start the cab side screws first but do not fully tighten until the hood is cool from forming.
