    Huh? I've never heard of that procedure...I'm sure it costs lots of money.

    I agree! Well written and photographed.
    Your tutorial addresses the distributor-cap end of the plug wire...here's a method for the plug-end of the wire (hopefully I'm not hijacking the current thread, I'm only trying to dot the i's and cross the t's)

    The Revell kit is a skill level 3, and has more parts.
    The AMT kit is like most of their others...molded-in exhaust, etc.
    I've built Revell's 40 Ford Convertible (and their 48 Ford convertible) and I'd definitely go with Revell as opposed to AMT.

    Sounds like you have a life-time supply! I'm waiting for some pictures.

    Excellent idea!

    Just for the sake of clarity...are you looking for clips that would secure the hose to, for example, a fender well or are you looking for clamps that secure the connection of the hose to the water pump etc.?
    I'm seeing suggestions for both.

    Small strips of aluminum would probably work. Use scissors (but NOT your wife's sewing scissors) to cut strips from an aluminum beverage can.

    That tile pattern looks great!
    Another approach would placing styrene on a large-grid piece of wire screen, then vacu-forming the styrene.

    Another thing not to throw in the purple pond: a paint brush with a metal ferrule

    How about thin black thread?
    Use a cotton based (not a synthetic material) thin black thread. After cutting to length, soak it in diluted Elmer's white cement then apply...any smudges can be wiped off with Windex.

    Great tutorial.
    You used several shades of blue during the process; is this because you were weathering a blue model?
    What if the model was a different color, let's say yellow?

    You might be able to use tail-light repair tape, available at auto parts stores. That same tape is also available in amber, in case you're curious.

    And they can't do wheelies either

    I don't think curb feelers would be used on the driver's side of the car, only on the passenger's side.
    Consider using a thin dressmaker's straight pin, grinding down the head if needed.
