    Gary,
    It didn't take Google too long to find two SOHC pics with bottom plugs.

    Just got back from the Post Office with my "polybag" issue.
    Give me a few minutes to relax and I'll open it.

    Bill,
    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I guess I'll try shopping locally first.

    Bill,
    A couple of questions about “Clear stencil sheet”.
    When I put that search into Amazon I got:
    Grafix Clear Craft Plastic .007 Thickness 12-Inch by 12-Inch, Pack of 25
    Does this sound like the same stuff?
    Also, are you saying that you can thermoform this?
    Any other reasons why this is your favorite?  (scratch resistant or just the clarity)

    Gabriel,
    Go to your local welding supply and get a sheepskin sweatband.
    They have snaps and make the band much more comfortable.
    They look like: http://store.cyberweld.com/coshsw.html

    Love the woody - but they're all great!

  13. Brian_R added a post in a topic what color dominates your builds?   

    My top four colors are:
    Blue 92
    Red 63
    Green 39
    White 24
    Then it starts trailing off to the two tones and others.
    I guess I really like shades of blue.

    UPDATE: Chrysler told Yahoo Autos this afternoon that while it did not have any records of crashes involving Vipers donated to trade schools, the cars involved did not have historical significance. It also said it regularly expected vehicles donated to schools to be destroyed once they had lost their educational value, which the cars in question had given their age. The full statement:


    "Approximately 10 years ago, Chrysler Group donated a number of Dodge Viper vehicles to various trade schools for educational purposes. As part of the donation process, it is standard procedure — and stipulated in our agreements — that whenever vehicles are donated to institutions for education purposes that they are to be destroyed when they are no longer needed for their intended educational purposes.
    With advancements in automotive technology over the past decade, it is unlikely that these vehicles offer any educational value to students. Chrysler Group fully understands and appreciates the historical significance of the Viper and is very active in preserving many of its legendary models and designs for historic purposes however, none of these vehicles fit into this category.
    Chrysler Group has no record of any legal proceedings involving Dodge Viper vehicles donated to educational institutions being involved in accidents and product liability lawsuits."
