What are you using for bracing to the body for the side air dams. I have a sheet of lexan thats .030 thick for the air dam, but its way to thick to bend to screw down. Thanks

.30 is what I've used in the past. I've never had a problem bending it. A brace for a mini Late Model should probably only be around four inches long and 3/4 of an inch wide. Just go in on each end about a half inch and make a small bend. It might be easier to use a pair of pliers to grip it, too.

you can bend .30 lexan I would not make my brace 3/4 wide it only needs to be 1/4 and I use two sided tape to hold it on my 1/10 car and some goop (small amount) will make it stay

I don't know what your application looks like, but we used to run
humongous sideboards on Dominators and SRP's and the like.
Did a billion of them.
If you are using "Lexan" about a half inch wide or so, with about a 45 on each end,
just put it in your needle nose pliers, and bend it..
It bends great. Just push on it as close to your pliers as you can,
and you will get a decent sharp bend right there.
