    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    How'd you get plastic rod to make those side pipe turns?
    Hollow rod? or drilled out end?

    Our model group got to meet there for just over 3 years.  (4/2010 to 6/2013)
    They were great hosts and it was a nice setting.

    Mark,
    Just so you're aware -
    We were at the NHRA museum and compared the Revell 3 window body to a 1:1 stocker on the floor.
    It looked like the kit had about a 1" or 2" chop.
    When the kit first came out I think I remember this discussion about it.
    I want to make a stock looking 3 window and the slight chop isn't going to stop me.
    If you're not showing it with a 1:1, you can't really tell.

    Curt,
    I like the "gas struts" on the rear cover - are they actually holding the cover up by friction or is there something else?

    This seems like a good idea for my Bare Metal knife so I had to go get one.

    I just got the FMR-082 Carter AFB carbs for the 68 - 69 hemi in the mail today.
    I agree, and they are spectacular too !!!!

    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)

    Well, I just assembled mine, now to find some plastic to terrorize.
