  1. got the wall pack from goodwill for $5, power switch was taken from a dead computer power supply.
  2. I converted a very old cordless (that they don't make batteries for) to a corded one using a 1 amp 5v wall pack.
  3. 66 GTO getting started

    I may be one of the few that would spot it :-) I have direct experience with the Rochester 2-bbl carbs on the Tri-Power manifold and most other GM vehicles that have factory installed Rochester carbs. In my experience, the fuel bowl (square boxy part of the carb) faces forward. Your engine looks great anyway, no need to change something that most people would not see.

    the tri-power carbs may be on backwards (if it matters to you)
  5. Weird cars Post em here.

    that's a little harsh...
  6. 53 stud wagon

    that's a great looking conversion. I think extending the "cove" past the back of the door and closer to the rear wheel opening might reduce the "heavy" look of the back half of the wagon that the new roof line is creating. (just a thought)
  7. Hacked again. Had enough?

    faceborg would reduce my already nonexistent model building time...
  8. Aurora's Show Rod kits in 1:32 scale

    Thank you Alan, I've acquired enough kits to attempt replicating the original subject vehicles along with some stock Pyro kits that can be used to replicate builds of more current customizers. Additional reference material will be very helpful.

    nice collection

    Being an "Other Scale" builder myself, it's nice to see what other builders do with their Other Scale kits.
  11. Autoquiz 388 - Finshed

    unfortunately, the subject post does NOT include the reminder NOT to give the answer away.

    I worked on one of these once
  13. '70 Mustang Mach 1/ Boss 302 (8/27 Foiling)

    the blue pipe thingy is a tube installed to control where internal engine pressure is vented (in regular passenger cars it is directed back into the air cleaner to be burned by the motor since it usually has fumes and is also an emission control feature). the shinys (breather caps) are vent caps which have screens in them, on most performance engines they are attached to the valve covers where you see the blue pipe connected in this photo. the ignition coil and blue pipe can be made from rod (plastic or metal), sprue or any other material you have on hand, the breather caps can be made or robbed from other kit motors. the ignition coil can be as simple as a short piece of sprue with a hole in one end to insert a coil wire from the distributor cap, paint detail will do the rest.
  14. "The Stig Collection" -Drag-U-La

    love all the SB work you've done on this, great build. My brain kinda got snagged on one thing though... I'm not seeing how the front wheels are connected in the photos so that both wheels turn the same direction at the same time.
