  1. Peking to Paris Rally CBP

    The AMT 32 Vicky (and many other kits of the time frame) came with a set of big and little Goodyear Rally GT's that I've always thought had a rather aggressive tread pattern. I think that a couple sets of the fronts would look good on the Porsche. I have many sets of these that I can certainly spare if needed. I'm at work now or I'd post a photo of the actual part.
  2. A similar story from me. I do remember the article. In '88 I was 20, and was just rediscovering the hobby as an adult. Seeing your work and others in the pages of SAE, showed me that it wasn't just a kids hobby and amazing things were possible. There was a '68/'69 Chevelle street freak in an issue that year, that really spoke to me and it pulled me back to the bench after leaving it behind as kids stuff at 17.

    Matt, I can add the stock headights to the dashboard - no sweat, but mailing will have to wait until Monday if that's okay.

    Electrical tape doesn't age well. Particularly due to the adhesive. Correct. This is a good idea. Thanks folks. I have one last part on the way for my '51 and then I will begin in earnest. I ended up having to get another '51 kit, as I'd parted-out my old one just a little too much. I used the inline 6 in another build and I ended up with trying to get the inline 6 from the AMT '37 Chevy to fit in the '51 but it just wasn't working and I was doing more harm than good to the chassis, trying to get it to fit. So at some point you have to drop back 10 yards and punt. A local friend/club member came through with another kit. I'm adding the X brace from the convertible kit, to strengthen up the chassis. I realize I may have done myself a disservice choosing the fast back and reducing my trunk space, but it's just such a pretty car. And the rear seat is not molded into the interior, so by omitting it, I'll gain a lot more storage that way.

    If anyone comes up with a good medium for the required mudflaps, do let us know. I'm gonna try some medical tape.

    A torsion bar front suspension has been on my list of mods to do in the future. Nice work.

    Immediately the Blowfish came to mind when I saw the drop in the nose. This would make a terrific land speed car, especially with the stock car chassis. Outstanding work.
  8. AMT '51 Chevy Convertible X brace

    I need the starred part. I have parts to trade. Shoot me a PM.

    I think a curbside would be fine. Welcome to the CBP.
  10. Need help narrowing a model

    Tristan, what you are planning is not a rookie project. To acheive the look you want that entire body will have to be rebuilt. Obviously with 1 post here, we don't know your skill level, but rest assured narrowing that body is just the tip of the iceberg.

    I ........................ I got nothing. I won't be wasting time with your posts in the future.

    Already in our rules on the first post.

    No such thing as bad publicity. Or so they say.

    Well it's on this roster. At the bottom, marked "retired". Which I do believe means it did not finish. http://www2.endurorally.com/pp2013/results.php
