Mounting autorack panels
In our opinion, autorack panels are mounted flush with the outside edge of the vertical
posts between the panels. On the models, the panel areas are recessed to accept the panels supplied with the model.
While this is good for providing depth behind our panels, you need to put spacers behind our panels to bring them out
flush. This can be accomplished by using pre-cut styrene strips supplied with each set of panels. The .030" X .030"
strips will glue to each side of the recessed area leaving mounting surfaces to attach the panels to. If you are adding
these panels to a pre-decorated car, you should not have to paint them as they will be covered up.
Here is an image of some strips added to one of the Tri-level cars.
