  1. T Bird chassis? I have one sitting along with a Monte Carlo. I'm trying to finish the Buicks first.
  2. I'm like Gerald- "box stock" has little meaning so I am as slow as anyone. I think Tim has an assembly line in his house somewhere. He must have a replica of Junior Johnson's shop in miniature.
  3. The clear did cause some crazing of the foil decals on my Olds. The clear film decals did fine. Thanks for the tip about putting clear film over them. I ordered a new decal set and will replace the foil 28 numbers on the side but now I know better.
  4. You can build it out of the box but the body lacks some lines in it, the chassis is the old MPC NASCAR chassis with torsion bars and leaf springs, although the new kits have upgraded suspension. The seat is also out of the old MPC kit and it was wrong. So I modified the body to get it right, re-engineered the chassis is to make it accurate, added a correct seat and modified the cage (it was lacking some bars). So, do you need to do all that to make a nice model? No. Scale Auto Magazine had an article on a box stock build and it was exceptionally well done. Very neat when done. I just wanted to see what it would take to make it better reflect the real car. Not necessary, but that's just me.
  5. I think it is time to call this one done. Body does not fit that well, chassis has a little warp to it, decals got funky but overall it was fun to do. I used the "updated" grilles and bumpers. I had to widen the back one because I modified the body and it took two hours of filing to get the grilles to fit. Next time I will dry fit everything like most of you all do before painting. Oh well, live and learn.
  6. My father bought one of the first 3 A100 vans in the state of California in 1964
  7. Is that a D100 in your avatar?
  8. Looks like some hard work going on in the background there! Car looks good.
  9. Saw the pic-they look great. I have found that for small areas like window moldings, I can brush Molotow and it looks okay. The pens are sometimes hard to control. Molotow does NOT brush well on bigger things like bumpers.
  10. It is regular chrome and is probably old but it did not want to stick. I tried it on the Cutlass and gave up and went to Molotow pen.
  11. Bare Metal foil around the windows? I can't seem to get it to stick. Maybe the adhesive is no good after awhile.
  12. Aluminum pulleys and rubber belts? How did you make the fuel lines? Inquiring minds want to know. Looks great. Very cleanly detailed.
  13. Was the length about the same?
  14. Pulleys and dry sump pump from the T Bird as well?
  15. Well, good to know. I am not going to change it now though!
