    PM sent regarding 69 Galaxie chassis.
  2. VW93 added a post in a topic round 2   

    I've been wondering about that also.
    It appears to be two different racks of test shots unless they moved just one rack for the pictures. The pallet racks in the background appear to be different colors and it appears the one lower bar is not completely filled with hangers.

    The following is from the Questions and Answers from the link I posted in my previous post.

    If we let Round 2 know there is an interest in certain kits perhaps they will realize the investment in time and restoration may pay off for them.

    Perhaps some of the missing parts or tool components for requested kits will show up when they complete their inventory of the "hanger shots".

    How about the Cooter's  tow truck? It doesn't have to have the DOH decals or liscensing, perhaps some generic service station and body shop decals. If they still  have the licensing for Texaco do it as a service truck for a Texaco station. And make sure it has all the accessories as they were back in the day.

    Now if they add the hemi, slant six, rear seat lower block off and the other parts from the original I'll buy a few.

    From my PB account I go to the album and picture I want. I then go to the right side of the page where it says share this photo. I then left click the box next to IMG. It copies it automatically and then I paste it in my message.

    Lets see if this works.

    I just looked over the instructions on the drastic plastics instructions page. It appears to me that the hood can only be used without the stacks. These are probably the original instructions where all the assembly steps are in text. I didn't notice anywhere that states not to use the stacks with the hood. If you look at the pics of the completed model it would appear that the hood wouldn't fit properly with the stacks.

    Mike, glad you did some business there. Ernie was upset about the poor turnout of vendors and spectators. Next show/swap will be at his slot car drag strip in Troutman until we can get the show to grow. He may do one in March at his drag slot car location. I'll keep you up to date on date and so on. 
    Whoops, double post.

    With 75% plus humidity here in NC I haven't been able to get much paint on my build either. Most of the parts have been prepped for paint and some are in primer.
