You know why they won't fix the top? They don't CARE!!! If it were a 69 Charger that they grew up with then they would fix it, oh wait they did!

In Topic: So lets say I broke a part off of a resin body... is all lost?

I'm shocked awed and amazed no one has mentioned this yet, BUT...here goes.

 

CA glue de-bonder. No sanding needed period.  Resin does not craze like styrene. So either formula of de-bonder will work. Personally I prefer Great Plains CA and de-bonder.

It's the same stuff that you get at Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby discontinued the de-bonder, however they do still carry the glue under a different brand name. So you need to find the Great Plains de-bonder if you want the good stuff.

Hobby Town and other hobby shops have a different type, of CA and de-bonder but it's simply not as good. Compare the 2 and you'll see the difference. (The Hobby Town type WILL craze styrene, like mad, so you have been forewarned.)

  To use it, simply squirt some on a paper towel, and wipe until excess CA is gone.  No sanding needed.

 

Try it you'll see.

Thanks guys!

 

 

Austin, that is an interesting idea that you have posted here, but the title of my stories has always ended with McNally, Boston PI.  My character grew up and lives in Boston , not LA.  Besides, during the Nineties, he was serving the US Army.  Sorry.

 

 

 

I also painted the rest of the body pieces in the appropriate colors. 

 

 

More to come...

  How about a side story then?  Something like....

 

Sgt. Det. Adam Troy peers out the window of the Boston Police headquarters. He sees McNally leaning against the fender of a new Mustang Shelby . He barely has time to wonder what he's up to, before the memories hit him (blindside him, really). Like a 2 ton heavy thing from out of no where. They do that occasionally, especially when he see's a nice shiny Mustang. He instantly remembers his first Mustang. He had worked hard for her. Started working odd jobs at 12 and his first real job with a work permit at 14 . He saved up most all his income and finally had enough to buy her at 17. It took 6 months of searching before he found it, and he knew as soon as he saw it it had to be his . In fact if not for that first car he might not have become an officer...        More later.

 

 

How's that?


In Topic: I would buy this ford if I had 4k

Just for educational purposes, I was wandering about the badge on the hood.  If this car is all Ford, then why is the hood badge round instead of oval.  Not dissing your taste or opinion of this car, I was just curious.

 

Are ALL chevy hood ornaments shaped like a bow-tie?  These cars came with round ornaments, not ovals. What car has an oval hood ornament?

4000 is too steep. But I would love to own another 82 GT.
