I've got a paper sack full of Revell "cement for styrene plastic", the tubes with the blue label and yellow and orange stripes that you have to open with a straight pin.  I bought them at a Walmart in Denton, TX, in 1978, for .12 each on sale.  I can still squeeze most of them, so I guess those are still good.  Also, one of my favorite hobby shops/toy stores used to be a place in east LA county called Terry's Toys.  I think it was in Covina or West Covina, just off the San Bernardino, but who knows now?  Anyway, Terry had a good selection of models back in the early '70s, all of them open but all complete.  He'd write the price on the end of the box with a black crayon, and then take 50% off at the register.  I got some good deals there, and amazingly still have some of them.  A while back I was digging through my bunker stash and found a model with Terry's "3.98" on it--talk about a flashback...

Love it!  I've always wanted to do a Blair's car, but still looking for decals.  I spent many a hard-earned dollar at Blair's way back when, and I'd like to commemorate that someday.  Where did you get the decals?  I like the dollar sign/S...around Pasadena the owner was lovingly known as "Dollar Don" Blair.

OK, guys, this is great--lots of good info that I need and will use.  One other question, though: what if my metallic color has imperfections?  I paint outside, and almost always I find everything from lint and specks of dirt to actual bugs in my paint.  What should I do with that?  Or for that matter, with the Testors two-step paint as advised above?  Again, thanks!

The colors are Tamiya gloss black, and Testors Phoenician Yellow and Artesian Turquoise (a metallic).
