    I'm getting the same thing.

    Wild. That's taking kit bashing to a new level. I'll be watching.

    Wow. The finished product looks great! I really enjoyed following this one.

    I hear ya, Bill cause I hear them too. Drives me nuts when people impose their music on others. I've got the kid behind be who can't work in the yard without the radio blaring from his truck. Selfish jerks.

    Picked up the cool snow dragster off the bay for under 20.00 (shipping included) and some resin casting supplies to reproduce a few parts for another project.

    It's tough getting good service technicians these days.
    Our Whirlpool Gold oven started going on the fritz. The heating elements would just go off. The panel would go blank but the power was still there because the light worked. An online search indicated the control panel was going out. My wife remembered she was happy with the people who did our Fridge so she called them again. I'm not sure who she meant to call but a Sears repairman showed up. The cost for the visit is 100.00. OK. He was rude to Gram, he was rude to me, and he was rude to my wife. He confirmed the control panel is going out. It took him 10 minutes. The name the estimate.... 750.00 for the part. 250.00 for the labor. We paid him his 100.00 and sent him on his way.
    I check Amazon and found the part for 150.00. I found an excellent you tube video that perfectly shows every step in installing the control panel from start to finish. It also lets you know the tools you need, (nothing special) and has some safety tips. The entire video is only 21 minutes long! I should have sucked it up and tried to do the work myself from the beginning AND we should have checked YELP before letting these people come out. Everything I said above was repeated in one testimony after another. I added one more 1 star review to the list. There is no option for 0 stars.

    Thanks Brad!
     
    I was planning to go the same route as Dr. Kerry. Something more accurate to the actual movie car. So what you make should be a great fit.

    I think I'm watching that on e-bay. Did not know it was such a great save.

    Great progress Dr. Kerry. Keep it going.
     
    If the person who is making the decals would like to sell a second set, please pm me.

    Hey Mr. Snake
     
    I went back and checked, it was Denny Johnson. He was a regular over at the showrods site. Still building some wild creations.

    I really enjoyed watching you put this one together. Great work. Very fun to look at!
  13. Scott Colmer added a post in a topic The holley Zinger What ever happened to it?   

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but i believe the Zinger concept came from Denny Johnson who originally created it a model for a MPC contest.  Pretty cool...if I am right.

    It may not be too hard to make your own that would be in scale thickness.  These started with styrene bucks that were used to stretch heated plastic sheet over.
    The end result came out pretty good. Once they were trimmed painted, they really looked good.

    You can kinda see them in back. These went in-between the bars of the roll cage instead of encasing them. I thought it looked better.
