    semi-gloss clear for Krylon?
    Using Krylon paint and I want parts to have a semi-gloss finish. Which paints work the best ? I have tried Rustoleum satin clear and got crazing. Not sure if it is a paint incompatibility problem or the Krylon was not fully cured. Really don'twant to have to strip the paint off again. Thanks

    The wife has a good eye for finding things for me such a new or old Hotwheel Mustang or Mopar. She seems to find these kits at the Goodwill often (after I walk past them). She always asks me to buy or not and knows a few end up as "Parts". There is no emotional connection to a Pink Cad so I am free to do as I like with it. 
    Still like the shorten thing with a Hemi , dropped with rubber band tires. I will keep you in mind highway if I don't use the stock ones

    Now what do I do with it ?
    The Wife came home from the Goodwill store with a Monogram 59 Pink Caddy kit. Complete partially built (engine, interior and chassis) unpainted and a clean job of gluing.
    For $3 is kinda of cool but I am not much on Cads. I thinking maybe drop a Hemi in it with some of those rubber band wheels and tires, dropped in to the weeds with some kind bright flake paint (maybe pink). 
    Any ideas ?

    I gave up on trying drill the tiny holes and now just buy the Arrowhead Aluinum pre-wired. Come in several color and style choices and look the most realistic

    My local Hobbytown has a good selection of kits general at higher prices. Very little accessories for models. I am able to order aftermarket parts such as Model Car Garage and receive it in a reasonable amount of time with out the shipping charges

    Thanks. BMCP doesn't help much if you don't know what the letters represent.
