  1. Past hour
  2. Yesterday
  3. Okay, took it apart again and painted the firewall white, the wheel wells and radiator wall aluminum. I like the red engine so I'm gonna leave it even though Grumpy painted them black.
  4. Roger Penske giving the GS Corvette a good look over. It's not perfect by any means, but it is finished. I struggled to get it this far with blind instructions, weather, paint and time issues. I learned a few things along the way and hopefully the #003 car will go smoother for it. This is the one of the A.M. kits, without P.E. parts and painted with Model Car World color match Pelham Blue. I use various Tamiya and Alclad on the chassis, wheels and engine. The flaws are pretty obvious but overall I'm happy, (To have it Done)

    Coil

    Tan COIL ? Never on a mopar. They're always black ( lettering color on said coil is usually a light green, but some have been found with yellow lettering) That said; Tan dist caps started showing up 1966, MAYBE ,,,,just MAYBE very late 1965. But by part number the tan cap arrived in 1966 Distributor itself is black body if dual point ignition system. bare aluminum body if single point system Dual point dist body shown Single point dist body with correct tan cap Correct ignition coil
  6. I've seen this truck running around for a while and finally found it sitting to snap some pics. It's a Ford Louisville cab that's been narrowed to a single seater. This truck is used to haul telephone poles offroad for installation, you just stack them up on either or both sides of the cab and offload them with the crane. The cab has a rear exit door so you can block both sides if you want.
  7. Sorry, my dry (arid!) sense of humor.
  8. Nice breezy partly sunny day to work outside on a car!
  9. Repairing rear window channel and have to use flux core. Keep burning through the metal no matter how I adjust!🤐

  11. Thanks Alan, that gold is AlClad pale gold and that’s what I was going for.
  12. I think I’ll have some time tomorrow night to cut out one of the small ones to try. If it doesn’t work as a transfer I’ll treat it like a decal. I’ll post whatever I find out.
  13. And, chances are, it'll be better, the second time, because of the things you learned, the first time!
  14. Thanks. I built up the Stingray bike already. Been ambitious lately. It’s over in the “All the rest “section under Schwinn apple krate

    yeah, and to be really cool u needed to have the big yellow accell plug wires! if u look close in the nxt pic, u can see the coil just over my brother in law's arm. they also made a small stock looking round one
  18. I have used it before. However it would probably be best to contact Jameston, to answer your questions.
  19. Ha,my father in law back in the 90's would have thrown a chain over the truck frame, one over the bed and then tell me to be careful !!!!!

    lookup accell supercoil, it was the thing to have before the MSD stuff came along
  22. Nope, not yet. I haven't gotten to the glass on my current build yet. But it shouldn't be much longer. I had assumed that they were just a dry transfer that you cut around, peel off of the backing and apply to the inside of the glass. But there's every possibility that they could be a water slide decal. At least the pictures on the back of the package don't show anything about dipping in water first. I haven't even opened the package yet. Steve
  23. Playing around with the T-bird. Used A Molotow 1mm Chrome Pen on the side trim. Looks alot better in person. Think thats the way I'm going. Should show up good on the pink paint
