While doing research for a project in some old Rod & Custom magazines I found some reference pictures for another Board Member's project that I copied off to mail to him. I just wasn't happy with the results, I copied them off on a pretty high dollar copier at work, still the details were washed out. I first thought that the pictures were printed in black and white, and monkeyed with the settings a little they still looked washed out.
Lightbulb moment, remembered something from High School Graphic Arts eons ago and tried the color setting on the copier. Viola! The picture came out nearly as good as the magazine.
The Tip is when copying pictures for research from old Hot Rods, Rod & Customs, Little Pages, etc. where the pictures are printed in the black, white and greenish blue. Copy in color and they will look very close to the magazine you copied them from.
The other tip here is that I almost always copy the picture from the magazine(s) and work off of the copy, it preserves the old magazines just a bit more. I've been doing this even for artwork for a long time, just rediscovered the first tip lately.
Does anyone make correct wrinkle wall slicks sitting at rest, not with the wrinkles up the sidewall under torque? What I'm looking for is wrinkle wall slicks with the pronounced "pooch" at the bottom portion, wrinkle below the bottom of the rim.
If you look at wrinkle wall slicks at rest you will notice that they only wrinkle up the sidewall when hooked up under power. At rest they have a pooch resembling a slick that could use some more air.
What's the best Ford based dropped front I-Beam Front Axle does it come in a currently available kit or from one of the resin casters current offerings? What's the best round tube dropped axle available? How about straight axles for Street Rods or Gassers?
