    Hi Michael, super impressive work!
    I`m building a base model `70 Challenger would like to use your mopar volcano hubcaps, could you post a link of that your casting hubcap item on ebay?

    I used pencil to draw the outline on the primer body first, ant then I just used X-acto knife to slightly do some strokes along the pencil line (free hand). After a couple of strokes for the depth I pushed harder to achieve the desired depth for the door lines. I think it just takes some patience and a fresh blade

    Thank you Charlie. Haha I`ll put it in my calendar, next one should be an accurate "glasshouse" style 4-door sedan with the correct Caprice full trim.

    Thank you very much! Good luck with your own build too.
    One modifucation I did to this model was to reshape the C-pillar. The original shape was missing a triangle area so I had to use styrene to fix it.

    Thanks, I really like to put side windows on a car model so it looks it can be properly left on the curbside.

    Thank you Kevin! I actually didn`t really fix the rear bumper, I just shaved the body rear panel and used bondo to make it to fit the bumper.

    Thank you for sharing your experience, Steve. 
    I like to build model cars based on my childhood memories, that`s why I`m more into cars in the 70`s. I grew up in China in 1980`s and we had a few American tv show and movies on screen, like <Hunter> and <Superman>. I remember there were a lot of the full-size cars in those media which were from the 1970s and were not in a good condition. But those images were always a big inspiration for me in that time era and I really think those last generation full-size cars during malaise era are really cool! Especially when they turn into curbside beaters and lose all the hubcaps and then I can feel the authenticity.

    Thank you very much. I found the correct fonts and sticker images online, and then I used Adobe illustrator for the graphic design and print it out with tin can glued to the back.

    Thank you, yes I still remember those crappy orange plastic parts and huge flashes everywhere, not to mention those incorrect wheel position. It took me quite a while to clean it up but I`m happy with what turns out in the end

    Thanks, I was using thick aluminum foil (from the kitchen baking supply). I covered the foil to the original plastic part and carefully shaped it and took it off. And then I just twisted the foil to the desired look of damage and I used epoxy on the back side to secure the shape of the foil. The whole process took me like 15 minutes or could be less
