      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

    Very clever Ted using an allen wrench for the hex base of the plugs.
    I have always had an interest in old classic and hot rods Randy. There have been a few Model T projects on the forum that have inspired me.
    Thanks Dennis. I'm keeping an eye on the build-off.
    I wish had more of these plugs too Daniel.
    Here I have added the turned up radiator hose connection.  Its too long but I want to have some material to work with if I ever decide to install the engine in something.  And Eric please note that I've added the magneto post.

    Here is the trailer that was included in the MPC's Mako Shark and '76 Caprice kits.

    Thank you Eric and Daniel.  Mark, Mr. Norman Veber hooked me up with some out of production spark plugs.  I think these will work just fine.

    Great project.

    Not a big Foose fan but I thought he did a great job on this one.

    I don't know if it is just my computer but most of your earlier photos are not showing up.

    Jellyfish released only two albums, Bellybutton and Spilt Milk (both excellent) before braking up.  One of my favorites for sure.

    Race Car Trailer
    I bought this parts kit trailer off ebay and restored it.  This particular trailer is from MPC’s Mako Shark kit but the same trailer was included in MPC’s ’76 Caprice.  Scratch built the front rail, storage tray and tail light housings.  The gas cans and tool box are from the current issue of the Falcon Ranchero.  The build thread is here:

    Very nice.

    Thanks Bruce.  The detail on most of the engine is quite good.  However they made no effort on the spark plugs.

    I removed the blobs and reshaped the plug recesses with a ball bit.  I am working on some replacement plugs.  If I can't find or make anything acceptable I'll just leave them out.  Also added a connector to the exhaust manifold for the pipe.

    The Revell '66 GT350 has nice fined Cobra script covers but they are for a 289.  Use could try reshaping them?

    Those look more like 428, I can't recall ever seeing fined 427 valve covers.
