    This link will take you to the thread that shows the entire repair process on the Toy Studebaker Collectors Club Forum.

    This is the finished model. Cardboard was used to fill in the badly warped roof, and was used to replace missing parts.

    Elmer's Glue-All and Elmer's Wood Glue were used to bond the cardboard parts to the plastic body and metal chassis!

    You will get a full understanding of all this when you see the thread, so definitely, click the link.

    That was interesting. I would have used something different and probably melted the whole model!

    Acetate plastic is unstable stuff, definitely.

    You mean like a toaster oven or flame thrower?

    That's where it would have ended up!! I'm not good when it comes to mixing and matching "goops" like that. :)

    I thought that car looked somewhat familiar, but couldn't figure out why. Now I know. There's a blue one just like it sitting just down the road from me at our local repair shop!

    Good to see there is hope for all those warped promos out there...
