Seeing how you made that trailer from scratch was awesome. It adds a whole different dimension to customizing. :)

Awesome job on the truck cap and the trailer! I'd like to try making a teardrop camper. How flexible is that styrene? Is it thin enough that you can bend it around the curves with no problem, or do you have to something like heat it up or back cut it with a razor knife to bend it?
