MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. I'll be sending prayers your way. Cancer may as well be the devil himself. I lost my dad 2 months ago to stage 4 liver cancer... he passed a week before his 49th birthday. Of course he had a whole myriad of other health issues and lifelong problems with alcohol and substance abuse. Y'all can beat it! Don't give up and fight like hell! I'll be rooting for you both! God, Good Doctors, and willpower can pull you through anything in high gear with a slipping transmission and a fouled spark plug!
  2. Sweet bass save! I recently added a new to my stable much to my wife's disliking. A new Charvel Pro-mod in "Shell pink". I have an original Charvel 375 deluxe in desert crackle that I love and an original model 2 that is getting some airbrush work done at the moment. Please excuse the mess... the Hobby room has been in a state of "reorganization" for a few months. I did get a new floor rack finally, just haven't found a good place to put it yet!
  3. Very cool. I like that color alot. The interior is also very clean.
  4. I'll gladly take some decals off your hands.
  5. Still working on it... unfortunately being out of work just allows the wife to "honey do" me to DEATH!! But, I have got the body practically done, just needs another veey mild round of cut n buff. I've currently been fighting with the dashboard and the exhaust, trying to bend styrene tubing is a pita! But the wheels are present and accounted for, and awaiting installation. I'm hoping for plenty of bench time this coming week, as my chore list has been cut down to manageable levels and the wife returns to work monday, so I should have ample time to produce some results!
  6. Fantastic job on the Cobra, it really turned out awsome!
  7. I FINALLY got a decent basecoat that isn't going to cause me any more nightmares... only took 3 attempts, trying a new painting method and products can be a pita some times. Now, I'm debating on wether to just polish it out or clear it and polish... I dont really want the dripping wet look, I want it to appear a bit more realistic. So I'm thinking on just doing a polish out and be done.
  8. You and me both.... I inquired months ago about these and turned up zilch. Best of luck!
  9. I prefer Tamiya... and different varieties of CA.
  10. Thanks. And that is solid advice, and 99% of the time I would have done just that... though I believe the problem itself was a result of my primer not being as smooth as I needed to begin with it went on kinda dry and I was being impatient. I just went ahead and slicked it all down and started over... I just got the black resprayed a few minutes ago and it turned out MUCH better. Gonna move to clear here in the next half hour or so.
  11. Update time. I've made some progress on the Daytona. I shot it with primer paint and clear (all duplicolor) and had exactly what I wanted until i burned through in a couple spots... so now it's been sanded and put in primer again and is awaiting black. Had to clean up some areas where I cut out the front headlight covers. Here I had to graft a peice onto the front of the dash to make a shroud for the gauge cluster, and I removed the ac vents and smoothed the top of the dash. After initial color coat I noticed a few places where my putty had shrank. The crossmember here is only for single exhaust as is the kit supplied exhaust system... I'm currently modifying both the frame and exhaust for a true dual exhaust configuration. Here, I have filled in the manual shifter boot, and made a spot for an automatic shifter. In the photo it looks like a large blob of plastic, I have since smoothed it down to look more integrated. All in all its coming together, hoping to shoot paint here in the next hour or so. Loving everyone's work so far, all looking very cool!
  12. Mine has started tonight... I'm itching and ready to build!! All tragedy aside this could prove the saving grace for my sanity...
  13. Consider yourself fortunate brother... I could still do some spot jobs here in my garage if I had to, but I'm honestly glad I don't do that kind of work anymore. My days of bondo dust are hopefully over... but then again if my regular job doesn't start back up I'll certainly resort back to it... I do happen to live in "hotrod heaven" after all.
