    The reference is for CFC wheels and you are right in that all I need now are the duel wheels them self's. I couldn't find a source for the wheels after someone gave me the tires. I tried Double Take and they are out of stock.

    Thanks all. I've reached out to KJ and the kits are as Jim B said OOP. What does that mean? I hope it something that's not going to make me plush! I just spent 2 hours looking up the parts that is on fotki and it looks like the only thing that is used off the kit is the axles. Everything else can be made and it looks to be very ambitious. I'm looking for something more modern to put my d8 Cat on. I built the Cat in 1971 or 72 and just came across it in the last 2 mouths. The old Pete cab over is wasted but the bulldozer looks like there isn't too much wrong with it. Any ideas?

    55 ton trailer
    A member of this forum made a 55 ton 3 axle trailer about 2 years ago that I would like to see if anyone out there had one to sell. The member goes as KJ790 and has a small resin company called Double Take Replicas. I just got back into the hobby after being out for about 35 years so I don't know a whole lot of people that might know about this kit. I do know that KJ is one of the nicest people to deal with. If anyone can help me?

    Removal of 45 year old glue
    Two weeks ago, when cleaning out my garage, I came across an old flat trailer and Caterpillar bulldozer that I built back in 1971 or 2. I have searched the forum and the only thing that I have found is from 2010. Has anyone came up with a new way to remove decade old glue?

    All El Camino came with air shocks so the ride height in the back was easy to change. Valve was behind the license plate.

    Looks like the A pillar is right, the nose is higher and the headlights look close. The  quarter panels  don't look right, but the top will be cutoff.Any thoughts?

    It's a small car but the wife just loves it. It only has 72 thousand miles on it and no rust! The 3.1 isn't a power house but it just fine for her. I don't think the top ever goes up in the summertime!

    82-83 Chevy Cavalier
    I would like to find the hood and body for MCI Cavalier. They look to have made both 1982 and 1983.
