Being addicted to Monster Jam on Speed channel and after going to a few events at Angel Stadium I can say with some sense of knowledge on the subject that there ain't too much wrong with your build. Great job! You've given me motivation to start on mine. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I've gotta agree with AgentG. The idea behind building any model is to have the viewer, at least for a moment, think that they are looking at the real thing. It looks like you have achieved that so far Allen. Who cares if the rear seat back matches the one I saw on TV? For those of you that do and wish to criticize a project because a Vector wheel has 12 fins, not 13, I say you have way too much time on your hands. Good job, Allen.

In regards to the twist ties in the vegetable department, I would imagine if you soaked the twisties overnight in water the paper would peel off rather easily, then running the wire through a paper towel soaked in paint thinner or acetone would get rid of any remaining adhesive. BTW I would never condone stealing these from a grocery store. However, when I am paying over $3.00 a pound for tomatoes I will usually twist one of the ties around the bag to keep thing from falling out and put another dozen or so in my pocket just in case the one on the bag falls off.

I don't think it is a Torque Thrust wheel. They have the center caps screwed on and have fingers extending out from the center to accept the screws. However, if you look at the Cragar SS rim you will see that the center is a pop in unit (as I recall that is the case. I have broken more than one on a Coats 20-20). The center cap and/or wheel can be from any number of of manufacturers that copied Cragar's SS rim during the 60's through 80's. By the way, the rim looks fantastic. Give us more information on your product line.

While doing some spring cleaning in my garage today, I picked up some Christmas ornament boxes that had been on a workbench since...well, Christmas. Guess what I found under them? Two 46ml bottles of Tamiya acrilic thinner! I thought I hit the jackpot! I hooped and hollered, my wife thinks I need help. Don't care, I've got the last two bottles in the US.
