I have been doing some engine plumbing. Hope to post some updates soon. What are you working on?

Question to those who know - what is best to attach styrene to photoetch - super glue or epoxy?

Dave, I might have missed it, if someone else answered your question, Slixx has two Mallory decals .54" x .22" on their new 1/16 scale Drag Racing Contingency Sheet. I have them in stock.
Anybody have any Mallory decals that would fit?
You're giving me the incentive to get back on my In-n-Out Funny Car.
Dave - Great shot on the latching system. Never knew how they handled it.

Bill - thanks. The updates took time because of other stuff. We all suffer with that "other stuff" disease. I need to check the progress on your car.
Thanks guys for the encouragement.
Sidenote- I found an Epson printer at work that they are going to scrap and I cut the drive belt off. It's about a half inch wide and is ribbed. It cuts very clean and I'm making a blower belt for the funny car out of it.

That barrel valve is a challenge. At least the one on the opposite side won't be quite as hard. It won't have as many lines to it.

Here is the belt I made from a drive belt I rescued from an epson printer headed to the trash. Not all of the belt has ribs on it. Most of the belt is smooth, so it will come in real handy. I need to add a very small piece to fill the gap at the bottom.
Thanks for looking.
