    Thanks all for the suggestions, I did get the bed super glued together, and filled the gaps with the two part epoxy that sets up in 15 minutes. It is very solid. I was able to brush the epoxy mixture from the bottom side and it filled the gaps very nicely. Just need to do a bit of sanding in the corners where the bedsides/floor meet.

    Thanks Steve, that is a brilliant idea, not sure why that did not come to mind for me. I have looked over your build probably a dozen times, great job. I am going to send you a PM with a few more questions if you dont mind.

    I think you are right. I purchased the cowl hood not knowing it was so tall. The 67-68 stock hood is perfect in my opinion. I paid through the nose for the below hood, but its the only stock 67-68 hood I could find. I think it will look much better.

    Thanks Blunc, I have to agree with you on the hood hinge geometry. I was just curios if astheticly the hood scoop looked too large. I have ordered a new hood that is stock without a scoop.

    Thanks Espo, I am on the hunt for a 2" hood currently. The Camaro i am working on has the 2" hood and it looks much better. You are correct, if this was a 1:1, the hood would be lift off only as it could not tilt back.

    Thanks Tom and Joseph, super glue it is. I have a few small gaps to fill and might use the epoxy for filling gaps.

    Ideal Glue for Resin bed
    This is my first go at using Resin. I am assembling a 68 C10 bed, what is the ideal glue/epoxy for resin?Thanks.
    I have testors super glue that dries within seconds, I have Tamiya ultra thin cement, and Bob Smith quick set epoxy, its two part. What would be my best course of action, thanks.

    Thanks Mike. That is my exact thought as well. The shorter cowl hoods look much better on a street truck.  I will do a bit more research and find one. The fit on the above hood is nice, just a bit tall. I had intentions of running a GM LS motor, and maybe a turbo setup so no huge hood clearance needed.

    68 C10 truck hood
    I need some opinions on the below truck hood. Does the cowl look too tall?
    I am using a 67-68 hood, but will be making a 68 C10 as it has the side marker light.

    Thanks again. I am waiting on the Micro Sol/Set to arrive to apply the decals. I purchased the below.

    Thanks all, for sure some great options to try here. The quick drying super glue, as well as using the pick to apply. I will most likely give both of those a try. I think my issue was getting glue on my fingers and handling the motor which caused the paint to be thinned. I then had tracks of paint all over the engine.
  12. kmc3420 added a post in a topic Enamel paint curing time and clearcoat application   

    Thanks TJ, I really appreciate that. So do I need to wait a length of time before applying the clear coat? Or will it be fine to coat now as it will be an enamel clear over an enamel base?

    Enamel paint curing time and clearcoat application
    I am currently working on a 69 Camaro Z/28 RS by Revell. I have painted this car enamel being this is my first model in a long time, I will be using Lacquer paint moving forward as the enamel is heavier and covers too much of the detail. I applied DupliColor grey primer, 3 mist coats of color, and 3 wetcoats as I had runs I had to sand out after the 2nd wetcoat. The enamel is so heavy. I am considering investing in an airbrush, but will research brands later on. For my current project, I have a few questions.
    1. How long should I wait to apply the clear coat? Today is the 2nd day after the last wetcoat, I have read that I need to wait until the paint no longer smells and at a minimum two weeks.
    2. When should i apply the decals? Should I lay down one coat of clear and then do decals, just so as long as a coat of clear covers the decals?
    3. Should I sand the color coat and then clear and sand/polish the clear coat, or only sand/polish the clear coat?
    Below is the car I referencing. Thanks for any help!

    Thanks Art and Snake. I have a 68 c10 model truck I am going to try and incorporate your suggestions above on, and more than anything take my time and prefit the pieces together.

    Thanks Ace. I think I will give it a go as you have suggested. My current issue is putting the water pump and pullys followed by the fan. They didn't line up perfect and gluing them on after painting is when I got a few paint smears. I should have pre assembled the motor as well as you have suggested and filed down the high spots.
