  1. For me, it’s the Ford Ranchero and Plymouth Barracuda. The ‘65 Ranchero and ‘69 Barracuda are my favorite years/body styles.
  2. Got the interior coated with Pledge, the engine painted, dash coated with Pledge, and got the rest of the parts de-sprued and sanded. All the interior needs is the steering wheel and shifter, and then it'll be done.
  3. I'm officially going to extend this CBP build window to December 31, 2019. That way no one has to rush to get the builds done in time.
  4. Here's what I got so far. The dash needs decals yet, and the interior is only half detailed (the other door panel isn't detailed yet). I coated the seats with Pledge Revive It to give them more of a "leather" look. I had the engine painted but wasn't quite satisfied with how it turned out, so I stripped the paint off and re-primed it. I plan to get the body and the rest of the engine parts in primer tomorrow.
  5. Got half of the interior detailed, started detailing the chassis, got the dash painted, and got some more parts sanded and ready for primer.
  6. Yep, that’s the stuff! It works great for clearing and, if brushed on, can give flat black paint a “leather” look (that comes in handy for leather/vinyl interior pieces).
  7. Some excellent progress is being made! Engine looks great, Roy! If the brake fluid doesn’t work, maybe try 91% Isopropyl Alcohol. I’m not 100% sure if it’ll work, but that is the only other thing I can think of to suggest. Those Mustangs are looking great, Rex! The build window is supposed to end on September 23rd, but I can extend it a few days if anyone needs some more time. I almost have the interior buttoned up on my ‘69 428CJ. I’ll have some progress pics up in a little while.
  8. Thank all of you very much for the informational replies! The glue-bombs that I’ll be working with are bad, but not as extreme as some I’ve seen. A few of them do have some depressions in the roof from too much tube glue, but there shouldn’t be too many (if any) parts that are a total loss. With some careful prying and maybe some help from a Dremel or Xacto, I should be able to salvage the original parts.
  9. I have several glue-bombs that I plan to restore. Is there any way to dissolve or remove the tube glue without hurting or damaging the kit plastic?
