I know The Modelhaus has the 71 Vega grill and bumpers, not sure about the 73 though. Check em out they may have what you're looking for. Someone else might know a better source for you though. http://www.modelhaus.com/


In Topic: What won't Super Glue stick to?

Thank you everyone for the tips! I'm currently trying out of the suggestions. I have some teflon tape as Andy suggested and trying this out. I'm also trying your method too Harry of using clear to brush on and see how it works out as well.

 

I'm checking my plastics I have on hand too and seeing what won't stick to them, found a bondo spreader in in my old tool box. I also didn't think of using Vaseline as a release agent on the pencil as Andy and Art both suggested. Another great tip to employ. I'll come back and let you all know how they turned out.

 

Now if I just had small enough fingers to work with these small chain links lol 


In Topic: Adhesive wide white walls

24 August 2014 - 12:32 AM

Mike very interesting about the wide whitewall vinyls there. I'm wondering if its a climate issue as well? Possibly maybe with the wide whitewalls themselves. I have a set of tires with the Pegasus thin white walls on them that are about 15 years old and they're still stuck on like the day I placed them on. I also have another set the same age and builds, that are still on, minus some deformation on the back white walls.

 

I used that set for a few test fits on some bodies, I had pushed them down into some fenders that stretched the white walls out on one spot. They're still stuck on to this day though. I live in California I don't know if its a climate issue as to why I have never experienced that issue. Also I'm wondering if maybe the wide whitewalls may have too much surface area over time it does curl up like that? One thing I did do before I put the vinyls on, was I washed the tires and scrubbed them with some dish washing soap first. 

 

I think I'm going to try a set of the wides myself and see how they do over some years time. I have a set of the wides from Pegasus I haven't used yet. Thanks for sharing the picture Mike, I never seen that happen before, always heard of it. 


In Topic: cb antenna

Hey Redneck I got a cb antenna. Its chrome plated, not sure if its for the exact kit you are looking for. You're welcome to it if you think it will work. It has a round base which has a small sleeve connected to the base where the antenna comes through. 

 

Added a pic of it for you

Thanks Carl! I will try that a well right now. I got some tires I can cut up and see what happens with them. Brushing on the glue as well I think will help. Thats the main problem I'm using my fingers as a brush in way to roll the glue onto each link. Great tips thank you!
