    I will merely paint the wire the same color as the head liner.  Not too 'fancy'.  Thanks you guys.

    can an LED be glued to styrene.
    I want to glue an LED to the inside interior roof like a courtesy light of yore.  I want to show off the "beautiful" interior work I've done.  Any suggestions, please?

    Check out "Speed City Resin" in Castaic, CA.  He makes transaxle conversions for the Toronado and Eldo.

    I too have a kit of the LRW, or what's left of it.  I used one of the seats and the front axle.  Everything else is pretty much still there.

    I do not know if anyone has tried the "Lost Wax" kind of metal casting.  It involves carving out of special dental wax, not regular wax, your pattern.  Then you make your mold around the wax piece.  Then you pour in the molten 'metal' and the wax vaporizes.  You can probably find a book on this in the library.  Otherwise go to "Alibris used books".

    There is a company, "masresins" owned and run by Alan Raab.  He at one time offered the fwd conversion pieces from the Toronado and Eldorado.  I myself have had a little trouble ordering stuff from "masresin".  Probably someone on this forum can help you out.  I am too old to understand computers very much.

    You might try "masresin", (Alan Raab).  He has a lot of 'off road' tires, including tires for WW2 Dodge Power Wagon tires.
