In Topic: Looking for...Gordie Bonin Bubble Up Monza decals

02 March 2011 - 07:16 AM

Thank you...I found the Firebird funnycar decals and that is the way I may have to go to make the Monza. I have seen the pics of the old Slixx Monza sheet and maybe I can find one out there somewhere


I'm kinda late responding to this but Last year a good buddy o mine who was big into modeling (actually the guy that got me back into it) passed away. Anyway i bought most of his collection and a 3 ring binder full of slixx decals. I recently moved into a new house but I will try to dig the book out this week and look to see if I have the sheet your looking for. You wouldn't happen to have the slixx number for the sheet you need would you?

Jim your wheels look amazing, awesome machine work your doing and I will deff. be placing some orders with you soon. I have a 1/16th scale Fuel Altered that I will be needing a current set of wheels for. I do have a question for you though what type of Lathe and Mill do you use in producing these?

In Topic: Early funnycars..magneto or distributor?

01 March 2011 - 09:47 AM

I am building a Monza funnycar and would like to know if they used magnetos or distributors back then. I have looked at some sites but can't get a clear picture and I am trying to be period correct.



The older styles look like distributors but they are deff. magnetos (which is why they usually look so much bulkier under the cap area than a normal distributor does.

(edit) Sorry guys I guess I should have read the other responses before answering the question.
