      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    I agree with all of you. It was my fault that I didn't get them when I saw them.
    I was just upset that the Manager would not do anything. I would not think if they were marked all of the way down to $5.99,that they would go back to full retail.
    Oh well,my loss,and I know the lesson learned.

    HL Irk
    Hi All, some time ago, I went into HL to look. There was a square display with some kits really marked down.There were a couple of Fuzz Busters on sale for $5.99 each. I know I should have gotten them then.
    I went back into store last week and they had 2 of the same kits in the Clearance corner of store.These did not have the sale stickers of $5.99 on them,just the regular retail. I picked them up and asked a salesperson if they were on sale. She got the Assistant Manager who said someone must have just put them there.After asking if he could do something,he said since they didn't have a sale sticker on them,he couldn't do anything. I asked if he could look them up and he said the paperwork has been sent in and again could do nothing.
    I think this is terrible customer service,and I haven't been in store since.
    I think my next e-mail should go to corporate.What do you all think??

    resin or plastic Weber carbs??
    Hi, I got a kit I have wanted for many years.It is an IMC Chaparral 2E.
    The supposed Weber carbs are not very good.
    I know there is a set in the Accurate Minn.Corvette,but,I don't have that kit in my stash.
    I am looking for a better set of carbs.Anyone know of any??
    Thanks in advance!!!

    Have access to boxes of albums
    Hi all you vinyl fans, my neighbor's mother passed away a few years ago. She loved all types of music. My neighbor is going thru the house and found 4 boxes of albums. She said there is a lot more there and will be bringing them home as time permits. Her mom enjoyed all kinds of music,Bluegrass,Rock and Roll,Christian, Folk,Southern Rock,Gospel,Show tunes,etc...
    You get the idea. I know a very little about values of old albums. I did have my favorites when I was young. I am 64 now,so,anything in the late 50's to mid 70's I love.
    Is there anything or anyone I should be on the lookout for??? I have first crack at them.
    As far as I know,they are 33's, maybe some 45's and 78's.
    She said they were all played and had Elvis,etc...

    Purple Power?
    Hi everyone,I got some new Purple Power at Advance and put some straight in a plastic container.
    I put in some parts to strip,a Vette body,interior,hood. They were all primed with Tamiya fine and shot with Tamiya red and Testors Beige.
    After leaving it overnight,the interior is coming off but the red is stuck fast and not coming off at all.
    Any ideas??
