  1. Sorry to bring up a thread that’s over a year old but, does anyone know the actual dimensions for the cowl extension panel. Is it the same 11” that the extended hood added? Thanks, Nate
  2. The centers were most definitely plated separate from the rims. If you look at the back of a brand new set you'll see the bare welds. Also, I work in a plating shop; one of the processes for doing aluminum is a dip in nitric acid to activate the surface for the zincate coating (which is what the copper/nickel/chrome plating bonds to). The nitric acid would etch the steel rim badly. The cast in steel lugs do get etched some but they don't need to be smoth and shiny so the added texture doesn't matter. Nate
  3. Watched the movie today and during one shot of the rear of the car you can clearly see the reflectors. However once the tail lights are installed on the model I don't think it will be noticeable anyways. Nate
  4. Could someone that has one of these kits take a calipers and tell me what the outside diameter of the wheels are? Or the inside diameter of the tires? Thanks, Nate
  5. I think that's exactly what they are, the display model shown a while back had the torque boxes installed. It may be an indicator that we may get a version with other than a Hemi car yet because they aren't part of the chassis, they are separate.
  6. Same goes for Bill, I'll deal with him anytime. Thanks, Nate
  7. Great looking build, sits just right and great color combination. I have to ask, are those Keystones from the Sox & Martin release? And which tires did you use? I'm planning a '71 conversion using parts from the Johan kit and this is what I'd like for rolling stock. Thanks, Nate
  8. I would certainly be interested, I have a future project in mind that would be killer with a 426 Wedge Stage III. Thanks, Nate
  9. The headers listed on his site are for the Wedge head 426 not the Hemi. I already have a set of them from him, also. The Comp Resins cross ram is not the one from the Johan '64 ReCharged Dodge Super Stock kit. And Speed City has neither. Nate
  10. Does anybody trustworthy cast the Race Hemi headers from the Johan '64 Petty Plymouth/ '70 Petty Superbird and the cross ram manifold from the Johan Recharged '64 Super Stock Dodge? I figured I'd ask here before I buy some vintage kits on evilbay just for the parts I need. I know Reliable Resin casts the intake but I won't do business there again. Thanks, Nate
  11. It's also a 4 door in SK's book. Nate
  12. I have a soft spot for traditional old Ford rods, so I can't wait for this one and I'll probably end up with a few. However; Tim, I have to fully agree that we are ready for a new tool '70 GTO/Judge. The popularity of the Judges have escalated among 1:1 collectors in the last couple years. I own a real '70 Judge however mine is not the one that a model company would want to use for designing a new model. Mine has many incorrect features either done by me or the last owner. But I think I could get a few of the other guys I know with '70s either just GTOs or Judges to let a model company use them. Now that I think about it I may talk to a few when I get the chance, just to see their opinions. Now all we need is someone with influence to put a bug in one of the manufacturers' ear... Hint, Hint Lol! Nate
