    That isn't a 50 50 mix. You want 1 part paint to 1 equal part of thinner to have a 50 50 mix.
    . So if you are using 2 ozs of paint you need 2 ozs of thinner.

    I'll be there if my wife is out of the hospital by then. No joke, 6 weeks as of today.

    Thanks,
    But I am usually limited to what I can get with the 40% off coupon at HL.
    But this is on the list now for when I win the Powerball.

    Any idea of the price?
    been thinking about building some cars from that era. Won't be anything super detailed, but I think I need a change.
    Thanks,

    The Card's have had two teams this year, unfortunately the wrong one showed up today.
    Oh, well.
    At least now I have no real interest in watching the super bowl.

    Thanks Dan.
    I stopped in the B and N at Val Vista and Baseline today. They had it, but only had one person working the cash register and I decided not to wait. LOOOONNNNNGGGG line.

  9. russosborne added a post in a topic What are your 2016 building plans.   

    I would like to completely build a model.
    Started a bunch, but need to actually finish one.
    Right now I need to work on getting a space to build though. Tried to use the closed laptop as a bench, didn't work well.

    The front sheet metal (especially the very front, grille, headlights, etc) are significantly different. As are the bumpers. This is something I am going to have to deal with too if I want to make it into a 74 like my real car.
    Although I could make it a model of the car as it sits, then I wouldn't have to worry about any front sheet metal at all.

    Yay Pinto wagon. I have a 74 wagon 1:1 project car. Not perfect, but it's a good starting point.

    That card is too funny. And true.
    Next month it will be10 years ago that my new (at that time) wife and I moved from Phoenix to Ohio, which was where I lived until I was 10. We lasted 8 years. Driving in the snow (40ish miles each way) was what finally convinced me to move back to the Phoenix area. My wife still wants to go back there. If I could be there and not have to work I probably would go back.

    I would love a 69 Coupe. That is the car I took my driver's test in while in high school. My first driveable car.

  14. russosborne added a post in a topic Wiring question   

    Just wanted to answer this question.
    Fords with this type of ignition/starting wiring used a special resistance wire that ran from the ignition switch, they did not use a ballast resistor.
    But maybe I shouldn't be giving away secrets to a Chevy guy.
