  1. Come on.... TWD can do better than that.

    I'm like everyone else, the show was great but now it has run its course. At this point I only watch it because I almost feel obigated to because I have watched it from the beginning. I started loosing interest ever since Negan came into the picture. If it was that bad and the saviors were that bad, Just Leave. Start over somewhere else. I understand it doesn't make for a great story line, but at any point they can pack up and just move on down the road.

    Great looking Yenko. About 10 years ago I used to drive by the old dealership every morning for work. I think it is a motorcycle shop now. I always thought how great I would have been to be able to stop in and buy a new one. Most people around here don't even know they existed.
  3. Car Repair Ripoffs 1: Dealerships

    It is really hard to find any shop that won't rip you off. I would say to try and find a small mom and pop shop, but I have even had the small ones try and rip me off. I own a pest control company and we have a fleet of 15 trucks. I have been through about 10 different places over the years. We have safety inspections every three months, and it's always the same thing when the trucks go in. They always need something...... I moved our office to a small town about two years ago and started using a little garage right down the street. Since I switched, they hardly need anything when they are in. I don't mind keeping everything safe on the vehicles, but I am also not stupid. This time around I went down to the garage in person and talked to the owner. I told him I would give him our business as long as he doesn't @%$@ me .
  4. I have been using their paid account for a while with no problems. Some people have told me that they copy the link when they post into the forum, but what I do is open the image in Fotki, right click and select copy and then go into your post, right click and hit paste.
  5. Question about dust control

    I think he is talking about one of these. That is a great idea with a few holes in the bottom so the paint can gas out.

    I am with everyone else. The prices are great, but shipping is slow. I use scale hobbiest because of the slow shipping. They are about the same price a ship really quick.
  7. Scalefinishes?

    I just got an order last week. It took about 2 weeks from the time I ordered until I received it.

    Sorry to hear that. My condolences.
  9. Masking Tape Help

    Thanks, I wonder if that may be some of the problem. The base yellow is auto lacquer. I thought the two were ok together as long as they were dry.
  10. Masking Tape Help

    I think I am going to stop at the LHS and pick up some lacquer before I redo it.
  11. Masking Tape Help

    Yea its enamel. I had a bottle of MM Classic black left over that I figured I would use up. I'll try the clear coat and light coats of the black and hopefully it comes out good..
  12. Masking Tape Help

    Thanks guys. I do have some pinstripe tape that I will try and I'll put a mist of clear down before the color. Hopefully this will be the last dip in the pond.. I hate to just paint them black because it will bother the heck out of me knowing they should be the yellow.
  13. I wanted to see if anyone can give me some hints or anything to help with masking of for paint. I am working on a 1970 Buick GSX hood and this will be the third time in the Purple Pond. Originally I thought I would only need to mask off for the hood scoops and the main black on the hood and then use the decal for the center arrow. Then I realized the decal that matched the paint pretty good would not sit down when I tried to apply it. I am running into where the tape does not lift off cleanly so if anyone has any tips I would appreciate it. This time I tried BMF but ran into the same problem as the Tamaiya tape.

    I do support my local shop whenever I can, but it is a half hour drive and sometimes it is just not convenient to make the drive.
