Cory, go see my friend at Skyway model shop and get get some "black flocking" it's used for model car carpet. it is a powder. the trick is to remove the part so you can shake it around, use a good adhesive, waterproof thin and smooth, sprinkle on the flocking shake it around, it will dry as even as the glue, after it's dry, brush off all excess. kinda like shake and bake chicken stuff. it also comes in other colors. phred

rent a wreck was a real rental car company, might still be around. i remember  when they used to rent used clunkers for way less money than anyone else. we used to sell rental cars as "one owner, 7000 drivers!!" and yes, we used to beat the crud out of them. ever wonder what the fastest speed tou can go, ans still throw it in park? it hurtz. phred
