      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.

    I did a little work on this, but nothing worth posting. I filed the posts a little as suggested, but I don't have any 1/24 tires. I'm almost done with the running around.

    I think it would be great just for parts. I'm slowly building a spare parts supply, but sometimes I need a part to replace a missing or lost part but I find it difficult to have the time to make a list of what I have to offer as trade.  I'd be happy to pay something for what I need plus postage for some ones part that I need. I'm not as sure about selling kits, but if something was rare enough it would be okay.

    Thanks for the tips everyone. I'll work on them.

    After a lousy month I got back to work on this. The interior is done. the motor is in and maybe paint today.

    Thanks. Since I have alcohol I'll try that first. Who makes Super Clean?

    Remove paint from clear parts?
    I started a Chaparral a while ago and messed it up. I had to strip the body of paint and then used a too old sharpie to do the black around the windows. Can I use brake fluid to strip the paint off the clear parts or will that make a mess?  Thanks.

    I tried to do some research and found a lot of pictures under Yahoo pictures, but they are a mix of other Dodges I found some of a red stripped down interiors but there is no way to be sure they are the Honker. I did paint a pair of low backed buckets but they were wider than the pictured seats. I think I'll go back to them to keep the build as close as I can the the real one as my abilities allow.
    I appreciate your help with this.  Do these look better?

    The Hemi is done and ready to go in. The fuel splitter is way to big. but considering I made it from the piece of sprue in the earlier picture and my fat fingers, it's OK. I should have left the stance alone because by changing the front kingpins the front came up too far. I had to raise the rear up to make it a little better.

    I never had one, but saw some a stop lights in My 66 Impala SS 396 four speed and it never worked out well for me.
    I started making the fuel block out of a scrap piece. I drilled through a scrap piece of sprue then sanded it somewhat square. I can't get a good picture of the finished piece, but it will show up when I put on the motor. It's a little too big but it's the smallest I could do with my fingers. I also found a pair of seats close to the real cars seat and I'm making mounts to get them a little higher.

    Some more work on the Hemi. I corrected the heads. and I'm working on the fuel lines. Now I need to find something to make a fuel block.

    I picked the Surfite up at Ollies a couple of weeks ago, and the 53 Corrvette there last week. The Mustang funny car and 33 Willys van are recent E-Bay buys
