Ive cut the first test panel from a portion of the koolshade roll which wasn't up to scratch (too creased for main finished panels). I used an angle grinder with a 1 slitting disk, and the results were perfect first time. NO deflection of the vanes at all, actually it was no effort to cut, and the grinder just followed the template easily. I have no hesitation in recommending this method. Here are some pics of the cut koolshade panel.
Hey Fly Scriber, I've definitely been taking notes on your build-up and Im going to borrow a few pages out of your book on my next Hero-TIE-Fighter build.
I was wondering if I could see a picture of the type/model of Angle Grinder tool that you used.
You got some really clean cuts on that KoolShade.
