    wheelie bars

    Hey gang...first I want to send a BIG SHOUT OUT OF THANKS to the good folks who got back to me about a dropped tube front axle for my tribute `55 CC/G Chevy gasser. I truly appreciate the input! I'm now looking to either fabricate or possibly purchase a wheelie bar set with netting like the one on the attached photos for a `32 Ford 3 window coupe AA/FA I'm sort-of scratch building. Any ideas or suggestions on how to fab them or where I might purchase some are greatly appreciated! Again...THANK YOU! CTDude

    Tribute `55 Gasser

    Steamboat...I want to thank you for your offer. Very considerate. I have purchased a parts donner 41 Willys that seems to have what I might need. However...I don’t know if it will work. That being said...I may take you up on your offer but won’t know for about a week or so. You mentioned that you would need the track width. I presume that’s the width of the chassis front end? Let me know. Many thanks again!
  7. Hello all...I'm in need of a tube front axle assembly for a tribute build of my cousin's `55 CC/G Chevy that he ran back in the mid 60's at a little drag strip in Wingdale, NY called Dover Drag Strip. I've attached a few photos to show what type of axle I need. The kit I have is an AMT 1119M/12 (see image). If anyone has any suggestions or can point me n the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate any and all help I can get. I just got some killer custom decals from Josh at www.bedlamcreations.com who worked from the images I've posted. This guy is amazing! Anyway looking forward to hearing from you all! Thanks! CTDude

    Fat `N Wide

    Hello all...I'm looking for a set of Pro Mod size Goodyear or Hooseir drag slicks for a scratch build 1:25 scale `32 3 window coupe outlaw AA/FA I'm building. If anyone has any please let me know and/or point me int the direction where they can be found.
  11. Hello all...I’m a newbie to this forum. I joined because my wife got me a 1966-67 Ford Bronco 1:25 scale for Christmas which rekindled my love of building model drag racing cars like I did back in the middle 60’s. Anyway, thought I’d say howdy and get right to it by asking how do I tint windows for a gasser and altered coupe I’m building now. Any and all helpful hints, suggestions and ideas are greatly appreciated! Many thanks! CTDude
