    Great job Tommy on a tough kit.   This one has the same headlight issues as their '70 GTO kit.   You did an excellent job cleaning them up and giving them depth.

    Thanks for the info Ron.   Kinda what I was afraid of.   If I can lay my hands on an extra headlight/grill piece, I may try my hand at drilling/grinding out the buckets.   Not sure how to polish everything out afterwards to get it chromed....

    I feel your pain.   I keep a set of ViseGrips on the bench to open stubborn MM paint jars.   Just be careful not to apply too much pressure or you'll rip the lid right off the bottle!

    Too funny Sam!   Love it.

    Not my daily drivers but in the garage still and taken to work occasionally.  Heavily shown during the summer.

    And my '70 Pontiac GTO.   Numbers matching PHS documented.  
    I love these cars.

    '70 GTO Headlight Buckets
    So I've done a search on the interweb to see if any of the aftermarket folks have done correct headlight buckets for the MPC '70 GTO kit.   No luck with my searches.   Is anyone aware of such a product?  The headlights that come in the kit are closer to the '71-72 headlights where the lens sits flush with the front of the bucket.   The '70 lights sat much deeper in the buckets.  I'm trying to build a replica of the 1:1 '70 goat I have in my garage and the headlight buckets that come in the kit just don't look right.

    Couldn't agree more Mark!   Again, this is such a great build.  Gratz!

    This turned out really nice.   Not sure I'd have followed along if it had been dropped into the NASCAR forum. Great job Mark!

    Great save.   It looks really nice.

    When your skills improve?   I wish I had a tenth of your crazy skills.   Total works of art.   Love your Fords.

    Beautiful build.   Paint still looks wet it's so shiny.   Great job!

    I'll let you know what happens Mike.   If I can make it happen, I'll also try to update seats with correct upholstery pattern as well as door panels or as the Brits call them, door cards.   LOL
