  1. Am in need of the chrome custom headlight bezels and lenses from an AMT 1925 Model T double kit street roadster. Parts #312 and #313. Lets make a trade.
  2. Yep, I saw that. Reminds me of a GT40 bucket of snakes exhaust system.
  3. Decided to stay with the Tweedy pie frame. It was already shorten in the rear and has a built in kick up. Added the Outlaw rear cross member. It also already had the suicide front cross member with perch. Did lengthen the frame a 1/4 inch (6 scale inches) in front of the engine mount to try and get close to the 96" wheelbase on the Kookie Kar. As they say in Govt. work "close enough".
  4. I will try to replicate, I know I can't duplicate.
  5. Thanks for the tip Alan. It just so happens that I do have a AMT '29 Model A frame (somewhere). I will dig it out and start to work .
  6. Vince is right about the HAMB (https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/driving-the-kookie-kar-back-to-1958.1110832/) article. Just about everything you need to see is there. Here is where I am on sourcing parts for my build. From the Outlaw kit: I took the Cadillac engine (Trans and carbs I'll use from the Tweedy Pie kit) and full exhaust, tube front axle and radius rods, front chrome shocks, rear cross member, rear chrome shocks, rear spring, steering arm and windshield supports.. Baby moon hubcaps from an AMT '57 Ford. Supported headlights and lenses from an AMT 1925 Model T Ford double kit. The rest I will try to use Tweedy Pie parts and change them if needed. Well, now to start on modifying the Tweedy Pie frame. Good luck on your build. .
  7. Okay, I am going to attempt a replica of Norm's Kookie car. I have an Outlaw kit and a Tweedy pie kit. Between the two of them I should have most of the parts needed. "We shall see" said the blind man..
  8. Very good work on difficult kits. I have built three but am still leery of the Mysterion.
  9. Agree, used one of these to build a Michael Keyser IMSA version.
  10. Hey Snake, tried to PM you but it said your inbox is full. This is the only way I know how to contact you as I lost your email address. Did you get a chance to see if the MPC RS grill will fit the AMT '68 Camaro body. Let me know as I am still interested.
