I built the delivery as a kid, and didn't like the holes in the fenders so I filled them with putty. Needless to say, THAT hasn't held up well over the years. I need to dig that hot mess out and restore/rebuild it someday. NO it is not for sale/trade/parts donations.
Well you can't take Beach Boys lyrics TOO literally. After all, they sang about "Super Stock Dodges" in two different songs, when "Super Stock" was a Plymouth trademark. (The Dodge equivalent was Ram.)
I've been fighting those lids for decades--probably 30% or more of every bottle I use--but hot water and bigass channel-lock pliers works almost 100% of the time. I've only broken one bottle (which fortunately was almost empty anyway), but I have mangled a couple lids so badly (after repeated plier-ings) that I had to swap them out with the lid from an empty bottle. The lids used to be steel, but I think they're aluminum or some softer metal now.
What's that whirring sound I hear? Sounds like it's coming from underground. But seriously, how about a build for Harry of black cars, to show our mourning? I just happen to be working on a black '71 Cuda right now, and it'll even have mirrors (just since the kit came with them).
I saw a magnificent '69 GS convertible--light yellow--Sunday. The '68-'69 Skylarks are of no particular interest to me. I'd be all over a '64-'65, though, or a '67, or even a new-tool '66 (even though I have at least four restorable glue bombs in the Snakepit).
