Here's a restoration of mine, an MPC '71 Grand Prix
Posted 02 September 2006 - 10:03 PM
I replaced the kit wheels with a set of "honeycomb" wheels on Goodyear "Polyglas" whitewall tires, and added a body side moulding ( I may remove it).
I have a new steering wheel for it(Pontiac Custom sport wheel), and I plan to paint it a 1971 Pontiac color combination.

I'm not digging the photo host at all because there's no way to adjust the images down to a viewable size. Ginormous images of model cars = :cry:

Bob, as far as the photo host..............I agree. I think you have to resize the pics on your hardrive (I have Paint Shop Pro) to keep them a reasonable size, but it would be nice if the photo host did that automatically. :?
Maybe 600-700 pixel range wouldn't be so bad..........

I would definitely love to see that get re-issued, but I don't think that is possible is it? Wasn't it turned into the superfly or whatever they called it?
That kit has so many possibilities. Hurst edition comes to mind.
I look forward to your finished resto!
