  1. Would it be any different from the '72? Steve
  2. I gave mine from the '68 Coronet kit away to a fellow board member some time back. I had no interest in it. Steve
  3. Our very own Bob Spedding, (TooOld) whipped up this great looking set of engine bay decals for my 1968 Olds 442 project! Some really great work and greatly appreciated for a printing illiterate like myself. Thanks again Bob! Can't wait to show them off!! Steve
  4. Testors Dullcote will not yellow. It's a lacquer. The only Testors clear that yellows badly over time to my knowledge is the enamel clear. Steve
  5. In the case of this 1967 Ford Galaxie interior, I used Testors gold acrylic with a dab of green added for the lighter color and Duplicolor metallic dark green for the darker. The dark green was dull coated, but the light green was left alone. So you see, there are multiple ways to skin a cat. Steve
  6. Occasionally, if I happen to have the correct color on hand, I will just spray with an MCW metallic lacquer and leave it alone. No clear coat required. 1963 Pontiac Bonneville 1965 Plymouth Fury Steve
  7. One trick that I used to use quite often was to spray a very light mist coat of Ceramcoat acrylic pearl over the interior after it was painted. You should still be able to pick up this pearl craft paint at most craft stores like Hobby Lobby. It has extremely fine metallic particles and can be used over any kind of paint that you like. 1960 Chrysler New Yorker 1959 Pontiac Bonneville 1961 Buick Invicta Steve
  8. Luckily there are a lot of readily available kits out there just chomping at the bit to have their innards donated to one of these great old Coronets. I transplanted the MPC '70 Super Bee chassis and the Revell '68 Charger engine into my '69. Can't wait to do my '68! That one will get a completely reworked interior as well as the other stuff. Just have to finish up a few other projects and then decide on a suitable color. Steve
  9. You can always sand off the mold lines and remove the flash and polish those areas with fine polishing pads before clear coating as well. Stay away from any liquid polishes as they may interfere with the clear coats. I removed mold lines and polished out the bare plastic on this Johan 1961 Plymouth Fury without any clear coat whatsoever. What you see is just bare polished plastic. Steve
  10. From looking at the photos that you have posted, this body appears to be quite opaque. Often white plastic can have a transparency to it that I'm not really seeing here. I say go for it. Steve
  11. Was just over at the SA forum to post some photos of my current project and the site went down on me again right in the middle of it! Steve
  12. Thank you for the vote of confidence Al! I will do my best. Steve
  13. That would be sweet! Maybe add a couple of the Flintstone trans-kits as well. Steve
  14. I ordered this issue a few days ago. It appears that it could take up to 2 weeks for delivery. Steve
  15. First off, get ready for your post to be moved to the truck section. Second, that's a great looking combination! The Fairlanes are beautiful!! Steve
