I'm waiting for some Micro Mark shims, but I've got a slew of KDs and I wouldn't mind getting started Brian
You can go to your local auto parts store and buy a $5 roll of gasket paper to make your own shims. This paper is the exact same paper that micro-mark uses. It comes in several thicknesses and a roll will make several hundred shims. The only difference would be that micro-marks shims are lazer cut and these would be cut with scissors. Thomas
I bought some gasket paper today and it is making life so much easier. I had about 9 Atlas cars in 2-rail which got converted to Kadees with my homemade shims.
