Thank you for keeping the whole thread together. If I were making this just for myself, I would have put it in the OTW section. In this case, the interested parties are probably here. Now that I think about it, that's pretty much what you said, isn't it?


I think that's what I tried to say. :blink:

Nice work on the body so far, Tom. This one is going to make a lot of people happy when it's finished. :)

I sent it priority mail over two weeks ago. I just can't remember if I sent them to you or to Tom. I think it might have been Tom since he was the one who private messaged me. I'll see if I can recall the deleted message.

Sorry, everyone! I have the door panels from Magnum. I really need to check back more often. As Kevin said, I'm waiting on a few parts. All is proceeding smoothly.

Whew! Dang it Tom, I have enough stress without worrying about the stuff I mail out! :lol: As Ozzy Osbourne once told Kelly "Write me a note!" :lol:

I really like how this came out.

Yet more resin to buy...

Question: did you remove the catalytic converter from the Olds chassis prior to casting it? Not a huge issue if no, but it would save a couple hours of grinding and filling.
