  1. Ditch the Rustoleum. Go with Duplicolor DAP-1699 (find that SKU letter/number on the label near the bar code) primer. This is a light grey, sprays on smooth and sands well. Avoid the DAP-1700, a darker grey, it doesn't sand as well. Available at auto parts stores. I have NEVER had it mess up any plastics or resin. Don't put paint on too heavy. A few lights coats are better. Use Tamiya paints (yeah, they're expensive, but worth it). My $.02 and worth both pennies.... -RRR
  2. The hipster with the pipe and the comb-over really makes the pic... -RRR
  3. You're welcome. I use mine often. Lots of delicate surgery here, we all know the patient is in the doctors' good hands and will survive all of the cutting and stitching together. Carry on..... -RRR
  4. My father owned a couple of Ramblers. I remember going to the dealer to pick up our new '63 wagon in red. My father ordered it with the inside rear door handle delete option. An early form of a 'child lock'. You had to open the rear doors from the outside. My old man was ahead of his time.... -RRR
  5. Nice job, with the STR6 power! The ragtop came out great! -RRR
  6. I believe this is the original version of the above kit? One of the 'Switchers' kits.....-RRR
  7. '31 Ford Mordor....at about 4000' elevation in the Coronado National Forest outside of Tucson....nice stock resto job. -RRR
  8. Speaking of Gang Green, one of my favorite covers... -RRR
  9. It would be easier to start with the original 'Rat Roaster' version of the kit with the stock windshield and body with the mounting location divots for the windshield than the new rendition. -RRR
  10. Add to new parts list: The body, which has been modified to accept the DuVall windshield. (no mounting divots on the side of the cowl to mount stock windshield). -RRR
  11. YUM!!!! It's the same as the original blown SBC.... -RRR
  12. You need a Bluto in pirate outfit popping out of the hatch! -RRR
  13. Great site, TONS of information on traditional rods and kustoms. I miss the HAMB mobile app... -RRR
  14. The red and black body works perfectly, the detail on the interior is impressive, even though it doesn't have a cup holder (and the Weiand decal is missing on the blower)🤐.... -RRR
  15. Cut up from the Revell Model A coupe. I sent it to ADL, I don't believe he's done anything with it.... -RRR
  16. Nice! It looks like you forgot the cup holder🤐!!! -RRR
  17. I throw a dart of my wall of stuff and start with whatever it hits...collect bits and pieces from there. I just build whatever strikes my fancy, often times I get inspiration from a 1:1 car... -RRR
