    Indeed
    The Flying Eyeball is as iconic to Hot Rodding as the "8 Ball Girl"

    Mufflers are getting exhausting
    I have a few 64 Mopars that need some exhaust systems made up. I have been trying to make some mufflers up from aluminum tubing and have had fair success at best.
    My next thought that maybe I could duplicate the muffler set from the Revell 68 Charger. If I can duplicate it from the front to the back of the mufflers I can make it work on most my current builds. My question is what would would be the best way to make molds of the front pipes to the back of the mufflers resin casting ? Keep in mind I have never tried any resin casting.

    Walmart carries a few but they are online only since they stopped having them in the store.
    Other than that just doing every day shopping I don't think you would run across one
     
    I also have a Testers Hot Metal Model T kit with the pre-painted body that I have been considering for him.

    I have been using some that I bought sometime back in the early 90"s works OK for me

    Removing paint from resin cast.
    I have not worked with resin cast parts much but have a coil I purchased and the paint turned out funky. I did my usual soak in brake fluid routine.  It wasn't in very long but when I removed it it didn't look much like a coil anymore. Is there something that will remove the paint without deteriorating the part ?

    Models for kids ?
    On my recent visit to the Goodwill As-is store I picked up a complete (all but instructions), un-built Monogram 1/32 Snap Tite Chevy Bison Semi Truck kit and a complete AMT 88 Daytona kit for $1.67 a lb. I have a grandson that is 12 and has a type of the autism syndrome. He has a very short attention span and spends most of his time with his electronic toys. He has shown a interest with building a model with me. We tried doing a Aluma Coupe but with only being at my place occasionally  and the kits poor parts fit it didn't really get finished. 
    Since he likes big trucks would the Bison kit be a good kit for him and I to build ? Are there any other kits that are suitable for a challenged kid to build ?

    He seems to be known for his striping and art skills but I don't recall him being connected to any particular car build. I would think only connection would be  in his art work.
