    Back when I was a teenager, my folks had the same LTD wagon. That thing was BADASS, and it was the best car for going to the drive-in with the girlfriend. Lots of space in the back with the rear seats down.

    I never can get enough of this video​. The early cars bring back childhood memories.

    It's always sad to hear when a LHS shop closes it's doors. I'm lucky to have 4 LHS's with-in an hours drive of my door. We in Ontario don't have the big box hobby stores like you guys in the states do. And Wal-Mart in Canada still don't sell model kits like they use to so I support my LHS.

    The Pantone book your being quoted is the one used to match Pantone colours when using the 4 colour process system when making plates it's called a screen value book. It's not the right book. He needs to find a Pantone Matching book that is used for matching stand alone colours, which I have one. The formula for PMS 376c Green is as follows,

    Yellow : 78.00 %

    Green : 22.00 %

    Total = 100.00 %

    Use this formula to match the colour you need. You may need to add more green to get the proper tone depending on the primer colour you use. Test on plastic spoons to get it right. Good luck.

    I don't think that the media would be rigid enough to support any weight, but I could be wrong. But it looks interesting any way.

    I got the contest issue in Fridays mail that ones # 193, so #194 should be out in a month or two.

    Fuel pump. The electrical one in the trunk with the fuel cell and the second mechanical one on the motor.

    I agree 100% with this. The only exception to this rule would be if the kit was super rare and the subject kit was something I'd be into building.

    In a word, No. You need something has a bit of " Tack " to it so it will adhere to the painted surface.

    Not Roush, but Tom Gloy T/A Mustang. Basicly the same mechanicals as Roush thanks to the SCCA.

    ​Have you considered using shrink tubing over the wire ? It comes in lots of colours and can be painted with acrylics.
