    To put my 2 cents in: I recently decanted Tamiya laquer and after letting it sit in an open jar (for 6 hrs.?) and I had to add a LOT of laquer thinner to get to the (thin)viscosity AND turn the pressure way up.  I probably got at least 4 ounces of paint out of that aerosol can after it was thinned way down.

    soaking resin and styrene parts to clean
    My question is what is the most economical 'media' to soak these parts in (to get the mold release agent cleaned off).  Whitewall-cleaner?  Simple Green?  Oven cleaner?  Any ideas?  Thanks

    '66 Toronado chassis
    I just bought and received a beautiful resin kit of the '66 Toronado.  But I am pretty sure I am going to need an accurate Toronado chassis.  Any comments of any kind will be very welcome.

    I believe there is a very nice dual-quad 302 in a Camaro kit, RS/SS, 1/25 probably.  Someone out there knows of this kit whereof I speak!

    How to glue solder to styrene?
    I am making a custom exhaust system using solder.  Is there a "best solder" type to use?  Would I use a self-etching primer first?  Thanks for the help.

    I see that no one has mentioned "Duplicolor"; I seem to remember a number of builders using this.  I was wandering around Hobby Lobby and I saw other brands, too, that some modelers use.

    Thanks everyone.  I'm building Dick Landy's '68 Hemi Dart.  All the photos show Cragars or Keystones.  So I thankyou for the info.

    set of chrome Cragars, 4, aftermarket
    Has anybody seen in any of the model-car magazines, sets of 4 chrome Cragar wheels?  I think the price for a set of 4 was $12.00.  Thanks.
