Thanks for getting this up, Darren.

Value Gear states on their website that the Sherman stowage sets can be soaked in hot water and then shaped to conform with curved surfaces. It wasn't said with this set but I imagine it would still work. I will give it a try and see how it goes.

I just completed an order for two sets of their tarps. Paid through Pay Pal and almost immediately received a note from Steve, the owner, regarding his product line. He placed the items in the mail within hours of my order, the shipping price was extremely reasonable and I am anxious awaiting the items.
More to follow, but so far I am impressed

Resins are almost all (some resins are harder than others) bendable to a certain point after soaking in boiling water. Mine as well as other resin bit makers. It is one of those secrets I learned a few years ago. I started telling my friends and they looked at me like "of course it does you idiot". It was the greatest trick I ever learned. So practice with some extra bits before you use you newest or best bits. Really helps to fit a fender or odd spot on any vehicle.

DJ you caught me at the perfect time today. Usually everything ships the next day. But it's true I don't mess around getting orders out.

Steve, you always shipped very quick no matter what side of the ocean you were on.
