ive been looking into this alot more started skinning, theirs a few methods to make a part, ones for looks thats not skinning and then ones for strength or body panels is a bit different. ill see if i can find that video i Favorited on my other computer later. the pieces for look seems doable but the one for like body pieces with vacuum forming needs special equipment thats kinda expensive.
