Gravity RC Skirt Pen

Gravity RC Skirt Pen

Gravity RC introduce the Skirt Pen, an adjustable height marker to mark the height of on-road body cut lines. With the body on the car the pen is laid on the table or pit board to draw an accurate line around the body which indicates the lower cutting line. The 6-sided unit offers measurements of 4.5mm, 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, and 9mm with the laser-engraved number facing up is the exact height of the pen’s tip. The Skirt Pen also includes masking tape to apply on the body’s skirt before drawing the line to help with visibility on dark body designs. Other uses may include marking lines on foam off-road inserts when cutting them narrower to size.
