    Wow. Never heard of the Automotion forum, utterly tragic on the deep-sixing of the photos. I tried various ways to see if the forum could be dug out of the Internet Archive, but no luck. I've learned elsewhere that stuff on the internet never exactly disappears, it just sometimes becomes exponentially harder to find in some cases. Perhaps guys with much more expertise might know of ways to dredge up the photos.
    Welcome to this forum, though!

    Ya learn something every day. Or at least I do anyway. In the effort to find a photo of Hill's car ....

    ... I should have guessed folks would go and race these things.

    Ditto. For my Ranchero gluebomb restoration, I used his Falcon/Ranchero gauges, saved me much bother of trying hand-paint them. They are a bit of a chore to cut out, but the shine of the printing almost makes it look like there are clear lenses over the gauges.

    I don't think Dirk Joseph is a member here, but someone knows where he's at, we could ask how he did the ghost flames on his chopper that was at this year's GSL contest. The photo at this link doesn't do it justice, they were really subtle flames on the upper surfaces that I didn't see at first.

    Still don't know what it is. Suppose then it must be like chopping and sectioning an American Bantam, you'd end up with an oversize pedal car needing a major hole in the roof so you could sit in it.

    No idea. Open to chopping the top and sectioning the body, though.

    For example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tom-daniels-monogram-unreal-roller-parts-kit-/282666950451
    If it gets zero bidders, one might be able to say it isn't worth that much......
  9. Russell C added a post in a topic 19?? Whatisit?   

    Yep, I had mistook those as errantly placed air cleaners even after I tried to alter the contrast of the photos. I had also forgotten that I'd bookmarked this MCM thread by Travis Medford for future reference to use in my own '31 Ford project. And I just found this other MCM one by Tom King on the Riley heads.

    Didn't even know these existed until my pal Steve Catron in Santa Fe told me about them, and that there was someone on ebay selling 3D printed ones. Found the listing here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Frenzel-supercharger-1-25th-scale-for-Ford-flathead-models-high-resolution-3d-/202056240001

    Spectacular work! Is any of that work done initially by computerized 3D routing techniques to at least achieve the basic rough form? Years ago when I showed that process to a traditional bas-relief carver of wax portraits that were used as patterns in sand-cast bronze plaques, he said he would love to use that process, where he could still utilize his traditional final work finishing skills while saving much time in getting to the rough shape.
  12. Russell C added a post in a topic Anyone else experiencing a delay when clicking on a post etc?   

    Been lazy about getting it done, but for my obsolete iMac and its Firefox browser, I finally got around to installing a basic AdBlocker. Problem solved on balky page loading, so I blame it on some ads that wouldn't cooperate.

    Exactly. I'm stuck with it now.
