The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
Still have to be a little civilized! haha! Since it's not deemed to be a Cannonball competitor anymore, plans have changed, it's basically like a Resto-Mod offroader. I didn't want to go thru all the trouble of building bare interior and all that. Thanks everyone, Still waiting for my engine/trans from Clearly Scale... I might get some motivation back if I ever get that package.
Thanks, I got impatient and pulled the tape so there's some touch up to do. I'm hoping the fender flares will cover it. I hope I don't have to repaint anything because I was running out of that custom orange! I'm hoping my engine will get here sometime this year from Clearly Scale. I know he had issues but I figured it would be here by now.
I dragged this one back out of the box after admitting defeat to myself over not getting it completed for Cannonball... which will make my 3rd non start. One reason I didn't enter this year. Ugh! Anyway, a little bit has happened since then. So here's some pics! The last picture you saw, I was building a back bumper for it. That's finished now but I didnt take pictures for whatever reason. I also removed the molded in exhaust from the frame. There's a little work that needs done to clean up the look of the chassis still after doing that. Still working on that.
I also took some craft wire and made some coil springs for the front suspension!
Not sure if I'll keep them silver or paint them w/ a clear blue or something. I'll figure that out later. It added a smidge of height to the front end so I think I need lift blocks for the back now. Here's a mock up of it after the coils
I had a REALLY nice day saturday and was able to get some paint also flung on this thing!
The color is '79 Ford Tangerine. Which is super close to '80 Bright Carmel. Shouldn't be able to tell a difference. Pulled the tape to reveal the base of Ford Wimbolden White.
So obviously another mock up was in order!
I still need to do BMF, decals, and other details before I clear it. Also will be flocking the interior carpet... I hope I have enough flocking for this big thing!
Thanks for the heads up Bill... I should have taken a closer look. Somehow I thought they were the same as the paddy wagon. I have a bunch of Tom Daniel and movie car kits I want to build too... there's just something cool about them, and I wasn't even around when they came out!
I use the instructions as a placemat and a loose guideline lol I just bought the "Graveyard Duo" kit that was just released by Round2. I've always loved these cars. However the engine in both needs to be a Ford engine w/ Cobra valve covers to be true to form.
