Topics I've Started

Tuck and Roll Upholstery Question

02 April 2014 - 03:35 AM

Soon be diving into a late fifties custom and thinking about going with simulated tuck and roll interior.  I have purchased some half round plastic for that purpose.  The question is procedure from here.  Do I glue the half round directly onto the existing seats or do I cut out the portion of the seat that is to be tuck and roll and then replace it with the half round.  Suggestions appreciated.


'53 Lindberg Ford Victoria Exhaust Question

24 February 2014 - 05:03 PM

I am interested in purchasing a Linidberg '53 Ford Victoria kit. As I am thinking of a basic street custom I am wanting a dual exhaust system.  I understand some of these kits had single and some had duals.  How do I identify the kit with the dual system?  Or is there a simple conversation I could find from single to dual?  Thanks.

Masking Tape Residue Problem/Questioin

21 December 2013 - 10:33 AM

I use Tamiya masking tapes.  Currently working on  vehicle with simulated cloth  top.  I painted the top with MM flat.  I put it in the dehydrator for 12 hours to cure.  After another 12 hours I masked off the top with Tamiya tape and sprayed the body with  Krylon.  I put it back in the dehyde for  12 hours. When I started pulling the masking tape off the flat paint on the top I noticed a slight shadow, if you will, from the masking tape.  Is this possibly caused by the heat from the dehydrator?  Should tape be pulled before putting it in the dehyde?  Thoughts?  Thanks!  May Santa fill your stocking with kits!


A Bit of Philosophy

A number of years--decades(?) ago I found this in a hobby publication.  It hangs on the wall in my "office of plastic". I look at it often and smile.  It is a bit lengthy but good.
