I have never buillt anything large scale but I do have the Big Duece and the old amt t bird hiding under my desk waiting for me to get the nerve to start them. I thought I might build to t bird first to kind of get my feet wet, then tackle the duece.
Is there anything I should watch out for on the Tbird? any special tricks to those opening doors? I have given some thought to gluing them shut. Any help would be welcome.

So, I'll probably build it like that black one in Street Rod Builder or some other mag, don't remember.
Low, Mean, and Black as Black!
I would use the doors as is, they seem to work okay for me.
Project is back in the box though
Just don't have time for them all

Hate to say it, but sometimes I can, uhm, erh, borrow wheels/tires from a 1/18 diecast.
I know, wrong scale, but you do what you gotta, right?
The Revel `34 Fords had some decent rims/tires.
There's not much out there
wish we could get more Aftermarket guys to do 1/16 rims.

I have a review in #114 on them
But, to get four of same ones, will set you back $40
But then, you have four sets of four
Best thing would be to go in with some friends, share the pain

I'll take a dozen!
Seriously, if you got time, and the dime, I would love to get a set of four matched ones, that has the American Racing Five Spoke.
4.26 x 4, sure beats $10 x 4

Strange, works fine for me.
Gregg, can't seem to get it to open. ????????
But then, I'm a Mac man:-)
Email me and I will send you file
The link opens up in a new window, but it does take a few seconds to load, or download.

Where did you find these at this price?
Gregg, I picked up one today. It was a Weld Racing wheel with a Hoosier dirt tire. I only paid $4.26 including tax. They even have marked the tires and wheels on the inside with the diameter so they can be interchanged. Thanks for the info!!!
