  1. I hear ya. I'm productive alright.....it's just not on the forums. Work around the house is kickin' my a$$!
  2. Thanks for the replies Tom and Rex!! The cals that I'll be looking for are on the front side of the rocker cover like this:
  3. I've got a Boss 302 engine build ongoing but don't have the "Boss 302" decal for the rocker covers. It doesn't have to be the whole decal sheet but if anybody has this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.
  4. Ya know MIke....that turned out pretty dang good potna!! Sorry for not looking in more on the actual build but the finish is just great man.
  5. That Nova chassis is such a good base to work with in Pro Streeting or making a drag car out of almost any given subject. It seems to fit like a glove. Nice work so far.
  6. LOL!!! If that the worst thing you can call me then I'm doing good Carl. lol On this one yes but on most builds I slide some spark plug wire boots onto the wires.
  7. Thanks Steve. I also adopted your engine wiring harness technique on my latest build. Worked like a charm.
  8. Here's the spark plug wire that I use Joe. Some folks use different stuff but this is what works for me. Lex's Scale Modeling Ignition Spark Plug Wire 5 Pack 1/24-25. | eBay
  9. Got the parts all cut out for the next portion of this build which will be equally as fun to put together as the engine was for me. There'll be a few changes in here.
  10. I'm not one for conversions or custom front ends and all that BUT.....I AM one to admire great body work when I see it and mister.,...this is looking GOOD!!! Amazing efforts on working those parts in.
  11. I know all about it bud. I've got so many things in line to do that I'll never see the true end of it. Crazy. Looking forward to more on this one.
  12. I've noticed that the temperatures in Canada are in 50's and it's been a little damp with humidity at around 75%. This could be some of your problems with the paint if your painting in an enclosed space like a garage where the humidity can wreak havoc on paint. Do you have a paint booth as of yet Declan?
  13. Ultimate detailing Steve. I had the same question that ol' Dave here had. Please elaborate on your carpeting process.
  14. I keep whatever scrap wire I can find Joe. In this case I used a strand of four wires from a piece of automotive electrical wiring and kind of twisted it all together except for the last inch or so of the strand which I separated out into four different leads. I painted coat after coat of semi gloss black onto the twisted together part to simulate a black electrical tape wound harness and painted the ends different colors and routed them to where they were supposed to go. I can elaborate more on it if you'd like. No worries Mike and thanks!!! I've gotta go check out your builds man. 'Preciate you stoppin in and commenting brother Dan. Sorry I didn't get back to you today. I hit that section I was talking about and then after I made it back to work got snowed under. Great talking to you again brother.
  15. Those wheels and that interior look PERFECT!!!
  16. You'll have that repainted in no time Jeff!! That is some crisp work in that interior and a good looking paint job so far!! Just beautiful work.
  17. I'll second that!! This is looking great Ray!!! That is one big model man.
  18. Finished the engine up this morning aside from a wingnut that I have to fabricate and put on the air cleaner. Glamour shots before she gets tucked away till a later part of the build. It's pretty close to my original 351W that I had waaay back when:
  19. Thanks Carl. It's Joe my brutha. 😉
  20. I think I'd be in the same boat with you not knowing which way to go Dave. Looking good so far and really like the Continental piece on the decklid.
  21. 'Preciate the good word Robert!! Thanks Brian!! Bust out a build thread on that bad boy!!
  22. Thanks Alan. I didn't want to overdo it with the plug wire boots. Too much and they look clunky. Thank you Jeff!!
