  1. Well It's not Saturday, but here is my new hobby room and bench. Not completely organized yet, getting there. Haven't even used my spray booth in this space yet, or even worked out how to vent it so far. Did take it all apart and give it a good cleaning though. Due to the Flu and a Mid Century floor too ceiling lamp restoration, haven't been able to spend much time in it lately. There is a small project happening on that granite slab.๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. Try changing your DNS server settings. Your ISP's default DNS servers are not always the best. You can change them.
  3. Forgot about those Squirrel Nut Zippers. What a cool band. Bauhaus... This one was just kind of spooky, anyone remember this?
  4. TJ, I hope she responds. It would be sad to see her get taken. Though I'm sure some of us have been through similar situations. Stuff that has to be cleared out quickly, you have to make hard choices.
  5. Well DUH! You do want the parts to match up in the end without any undo flexing or whatever. Is this really that hard for you to understand
  6. Well. As you can see There are as many ways to do this as there are members here. Myself, I wouldn't start butchering until I had a good fit between the chassis and body. Only then would I start on this modification. For reasons I've already gone through. To each there own.๐Ÿ˜Š Build it !
  7. Looks like a fairly fragile body, I would take the advise from Bill and Casey although think it would be a good idea to stabilize the body so things don't go south.
  8. Hard to believe any kit manufacture would think this was doable. All I can think of is try to put some kind of strengthening into the body(like they do on 1-1 cars) something that will brace/hold it together while working on it, but later removed. In other words sacrificial cross braces to keep it held in place for that work. Perhaps the kit chassis would suffice.
  9. You Know, those pesky little blobs on a can that your friends pick off and deposit on your carpet while watching football. Is there a name for them?
  10. I saw that one on display out in front of a department store in Minnesota way back in my youth. Geez I'm old, but that thing was the coolest.๐Ÿ˜Š
  11. Beautiful. As an ex CNC machinest of finicky tiny medical parts, all I can think of is... WOW!!!
  12. Tim... Ive got a set of '40 ford photo-etched details. There are a couple of pieces on this that could work. I took this pic the other day and have decided that the one depicted (toothpick pointing at it) is a bit too large. There are also two smaller ones on the same sheet, though I'd have to do some surgery. Never messed with the stuff before๐Ÿ˜œ
  13. Thinking the same as Muncie. Is that a Ford Econoline body drag car? Kinda looks like it could be the Galpin backwards pickup.
  14. As documented on the Jalopy Journal(HAMB). https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/driving-the-kookie-kar-back-to-1958.1110832/ Lots of good pic's for those who might try to recreate it, including some shameful fab work๐Ÿ˜œ Great history, though I prefer Tommy Ivo's T. bucket.
