It rained a few nights ago... The left half is always hard while the right one is soft, it drunk water It seams tape can be used to "waterproof" cardboard, but it will not be easy and what about durability ?

I'm currently building the cardboard rear wheel skirts, while I found some material to build a transparent hard grill block... Stay tuned for a next message...

Edit : added picture of the cardboard lower grill block after rain.

Have fun,
