      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Cobra Jet shaker scoop needed.
    I need a Cobra Jet shaker scoop (just the scoop assembly) for a project.
    I don't know what kit it is from but I remember having one that I never used and can't find it now, I recall it was molded in green styrene and was a two piece assembly.
    Too many moves and too many years of being stashed has it achieved "lost" status.
    I have lots of pieces to trade.

    well, about $200 later and I have a new replacement radiator and hoses. the car didn't overheat to I took a chance on the thermostat (which seems okay).
    I feel I got off cheap since I was able to do it myself, probably would have cost three times what I paid just for parts.
    there's really no good way to fix an aluminium core radiator without proper parts/tools (which I don't have).
    the most annoying part of the process is burping the air out of the system,one of the "air bleeds" is stuck and not recommended to be forced, the other requires the from of the car to be raised and multiple sessions of letting the air out after the engine has been properly warmed up.
    however, the operation was a success and the patient survived.

    you will need to choose a photo hosting site then "link" to your photos in your posts here.
    there are at least a couple threads on this forum on this subject so I won't be repeating it here.

    noticed after I got home from work this morning that something is fail about my car radiator, fluid runs out almost as fast as I put it in.
    and here I thought I was going to get some time to work on some models...

    You just have to admire a craftsman that makes the rivets he counts.

    this is just one of the reasons why I chose not to keep a land line at my house, with my cell phone I can block the numbers so they get rejected.

    brings back memories of frosty days at cold weather survival training at Bridgeport Ca.
    got so hot, was down to a t-shirt for a little while.

    from the movie Damnation Alley and a tv show I don't remember right now.

    with a little extra attention and some kit bashing, unique builds that are not available in larger scales can be achieved.
    I have one of the '34 Plymouth sedans that I'm planning on building up as a tribute piece to the '34 Dodge sedan build at the Kindigit shop.

    the term I learned was "wing windows" although vent windows was used a lot also.
    you knew a car was top of the line when it had power quarterlights.

    Hrmmm, it would be way too easy to start poking at the people who posted here that don't seem to appreciate this particular thread...
    Just because this is (basically) social media, doesn't mean you HAVE to post something.
    I'd hazard a guess that if all the people that have posted negative comments here had just ignored this thread that it would have expired quietly a couple days ago.
    Was there some Jedi mind trick that reached out and MADE you type garbage in a thread you don't have any appreciation for?
    Honestly, take a second to read your reply before you click the submit button and try to decide if what you want the world to see is actually "on topic" for the thread and could be considered to be participating in a generous way to discussion.
    I'm not saying that I have response to the original post, but since I have served in the forces that made it so we all have the ability to be bone headed in front of the whole world, I will support the original poster's right to post too much information.
