    Did you try contacting the company and express your concerns?

    $50 for an opened, incomplete vintage AMT '25 T Double Kit. About two years before Round2 re-released it.

    FYI.
    Just a heads up. Note how the instructions have you assemble the interior. I do not recommend joining the floor to the chassis when it says to, I'm very happy I didn't. When assembled the interior is VERY difficult to put in the body. I recommend only doing it once.

    Thanks Tim. Rest assured that I crafted mounts for both the Paxton and alternator. No floaters round here. 
    Some more done today. The last of the body decals. Very simple stripe. And the exhaust is done. I realize that most folks would have done something else, but I'm quite happy with it. It looks great when the body is in place.

    Next up is fabbing a new drag link. The stretched chassis made the kit pieces too short.

    The report you linked says otherwise.

    I'm sure it will get you around the golf course in fine style.

    That was my experience several years ago, I haven't tried it since.

    I don't recall ever seeing this kit before. I would love to see that reissued.
  9. Jantrix added a post in a topic And he'z BACK!!!!!!!!   

    I'll be checking it out. Glad to see your back at it.

    Excellent work. And great to see one in the "completed" column from you Darren. 
    If I might be so bold though, I don't think the skull headlight works with the rest of the build though. It looks great, but it doesn't fit the theme.
  11. Jantrix added a post in a topic Let`s see some Pro-Touring   

    I've really come to appreciate the whole pro-touring trend. At first I figured it was just another trend like pro-street. But unlike pro-street, pro-touring makes a car more streetable when it's done, albeit a "bit" faster. So I think it'll be popular for quite a while. I have at least two pro-touring builds in the planning stages.

    No but I have a WIP in the On the Workbench section.

    I quite agree. But an entire generation of millennials grew up on this stuff. As a kid from the 70's, I don't dislike Bugs and Daffy now that I'm an adult, and still watch the old toons occasionally. So I don't hold it against my sons.

    Got some work done.
    Remote oil filter plumbed.

    Intake, air hat and exhaust ready for primer.

    Cab decals. More decals tomorrow.

    You aren't wrong. But it is my wife's truck and aside from checking the fluids every weekend, I don't mess with it. I keep my car pretty clean, but she is apparently uninterested in washing the truck. As long as it's mechanically sound, I don't care either.
