  1. Could you use the hardtop from the 65 GTO on this Olds?
  2. And it doesn't really help much anyway, the still look kind of weird. I think if I wanted the stock hubcaps, I'd steal a set out of the original AMT 57, but I never really liked those wheel covers much.
  3. I'm not really into the "Pro Touring" thing, but this Camaro might change my mind! Paint, colors, interior, engine, wheels/tires, all perfect!
  4. I couldn't have said it better. It looks like the 55s I remember seeing back in the 60s and 70s!
  5. Your Chevy looks really good, but i never liked the wheels/tires in this kit, they just don't look right to me. If I ever get around to building the one I have, I'll use something different.
  6. I'm with you! I think those Stude pickups are COOL!
  7. I mean....at the end of the day, it is what it is. Know what I'm sayin'?
  8. Hey Steve, I wasn't even looking for it and found it by accident. I also found some tan that I think could be mixed with the black to make that hood insulation. I'd be glad to send them both, just PM your address to me.
  9. I might have some black somewhere. I haven't used it for so long that it might take some serious digging to find it. I'll look for it and let you know.
  10. I think he just forgot to cut out the front wheel opening like the great job he did on the rear.
  11. It doesn't say he's a pro model builder, maybe he's a pro wrestler. I love that 57 ford, never seen a car doing a wheelstand standing still!
  12. Steve, I really like that under hood insulation. I'm gonna have to try that! I noticed that HL has some new powders with that salt & pepper look that would work great for that.
  13. Yep, Steve that is right, make sure your paint is still wet. I actually have the paint in one hand, and embossing powder in the other, and as soon as the paint is applied, I dump a lot of the powder on and forget about it for at least a couple hours. After that, just tip your floor over and give it a little tap, and you get a perfectly smooth carpet. I'll never use flocking again, in fact, I've got several different colors that I'll probably toss out unless somebody wants it.
  14. I think you do that with flocking so it doesn't clump. It's not needed for embossing powder.
