    I wish A Hobby Lobby would be put up closer to me. The nearest one is over 40 miles away.

    I've had the truck over 6 years & It's always been reliable (until lately). The rust is what stops me. When I bought It there was very little & now it's spreading all over. Even the body mounts are starting to rust through. I can keep it up mechanically but I don't think the body's going to make it through another Indiana winter. It's a shame how devastating road salt is to a vehicle.

    I doubt I fix it. Northern Indiana's winters have taken their toll on the body & the rust is getting pretty bad. It's worth a brake line but not a transmission. As High Octane said It's a money pit & I don't see It ending.

    My falling apart '99 Dodge Dakota. I put new hub bearings & all four tie rod ends in it in Feb. & was then told all four ball joints & the tranny mount needed replaced. Got that done. Then came a new exhaust. Leaving work yesterday the trans. stuck in first gear so I drive 10 miles home at 15 mph. As I pull In my driveway a brake line pops. Over a thousand in it so far & it's beached again. I think it's time to say goodbye & start looking for something else.

    Monogram '53 Chevy front suspension &/or tires
    I've got an older (1988) Monogram '53 Chevy Bel-air (kit #2781) with a busted front suspension (part #10) & missing tires. I'm hoping someone can help mainly with the suspension.

    Stripping Short Cuts paint
    I need to strip a model painted with Short cuts white spray paint. I tried the purple pond & had no luck. What's the best stripper for this paint?
