and they have a ton of decals, for those who aren't top-notch painters

TBG is actually pretty good but again...be aware of what you're getting. In most cases they DO NOT supply window masks.
Minor crap but just don't want to see both companies get trashed because buyers were to eager.
There's some really good stuff out there. Anybody seen the Aston body from Racers Paradise ? Just plain hot !! Cheap ?....NO. The shipping gets you a bit but if you get a few people together to buy a handful of bodies the total decreases.
I have they're VW Bug, The Aston and a Porsche 914 for my M-Chassis.
Kamtec in England also has some different stuff. They also sell on Ebay.
do you have a link to racers paradise?

racersparadise.de is the German website. You CAN buy direct. Just send Markus an email. Remember, they're on Ebay also.
I have a couple of the Delta Plastik 12th scale bodies. I'd like to see if their GT bodies are as good. The bods I got are in the 1mm thickness......they can handle some abuse. Don't know if the gt bodies are available in 1mm though.

I raced this body here for a while and it came in 1mm, never had to be marshaled a single time with this body too, it ALWAYS righted itself on all fours every time I got hung up in lap traffic:

How much do these bodies weigh being 1mm thick? I thought most bodies were .2 - .5 mm thick. The .2 being the LW bodies.

I have the DeltaPlastik Panoz GT1 in 200mm, the F50 in 200mm, the Lancia Stratos (said to be 200mm, but more like 190mm), and the Lotus Elise in 200mm. Love them. I'll have to get the scales out to weigh them.

They list (Delta) their Lexan as 1mm. That is .039" so I will guess that they are heavy. Nice look though.

Found a cool product that we might be able to use in USGT and VTA. It's made by Gorilla Tape, almost like a clear duct tape, but lighter. Uses could be patch bodies, go around body mounts. Might even be used to replace the drywall tape and shoo goo in the front of your body.

A link would be good...

This stuff: http://www.gorillatough.com/index.ph...FYtDMgodo1QAbQ ?

I can see it being useful for quick repairs, but nothing will ever replace Shoe Goo...

nice find... I currently use a combination of Gorilla duct tape in the 1" To Go size + E6000 as a base layer to provide a combination of material that I feel is often thicker and more durable than the original Lexan itself when making crack repairs:

I use fiberglass strips intended for joining wing instead of drywall tape. +1 on E6000.
