  1. Iā€™d be in for 1 or 2. I love old buses. šŸ‘
  2. Outstanding build Hermann!! I have been following your build thread from the beginning. Love the detail work. šŸ‘šŸ‘
  3. Kit has been traded. Thanks . Mods, please remove.
  4. Up for trade is a factory sealed Pittman Willy coupe. I'm looking for the amt 69 Olds 442 w-30 kit or the Hurst olds kit. Open if fine, but must be unstarted.Please pm any offers. Thanks.
  5. Very true. Your righ. You might be able to come up with some sort of clamp system to hold an insert / tool holder, but you could forget about any kind of accuracy. With no way of touching off and no cross feed. I wouldn't try it. I've tried some pretty sketchy stuff on my lathe at work, and still have all my fingers.
  6. For harder metals, yes. That is too fast, but for aluminum, you have to use higher speeds to get a smoother finish. Aluminum doesn't "cut" like regular metals. It's an alloy. It has to be sliced. Try using a regular cutting insert to machine aluminum, and it will look horrible when your done.
  7. Have they finished it yet? Last I saw, they were gonna miss the SEMA show with it.
  8. I'll claim the Datsun. And here are my offerings. Both are open, but complete and unstarted.
  9. I didn't think it looked too bad from the pic. That shade of red looks GOOD on that T-bolt.šŸ‘ What color did you use on the rims? Is it straight silver? It has a nice subdued look. I can never get BMF to co- operate myself. I've waisted more money trying to get it to work, but between the adhesive being less tacky, and my fat fingers, not a good combo. Good work so far.
  10. Most kids would probably hop on it and ride it around the store. Probably some alleged adults too.
  11. Yep. Agreed. Bookmarking trades and leaving people hanging ain't cool.
  12. Same here. I thought we had come to an agreement on a trade , sent my addi, and POOF. Gone. I waited a little bit, and just left the conversation. I know all trades are a risk, but burn me once shame on you, burn me twice......
  13. X2!! Nice build. The rims and color work great together.šŸ‘
