    Not saying that they're all wrong, but if one person, possibly even one in on the social exercise put in a statement about something being off, not glaringly bad just enough to put a seed of doubt out there that by the days end that minor sort of problem would be like putting a cow pattie in a pie eating contest, everybody would know something stinks they just can't decide exactly what it is, and anyone who had an opinion would be piling on. 
    Still think it'd be a cool idea,maybe around April sometime.

    You could really rock the boat and photo shop a picture of the real car and make it gray. Then sit back and see how many flaws the rivet counter types can find in it. I think I'd pay to see that happen, but you have to wait at least two weeks of it being picked apart on the forums before you let them know that they just found out what was wrong with the real car, and comparing photos to the real thing.

    not all the preferred partners have them yet either, our local one wasn't sure what I was talking about, (they must be on automatic orders for the preferred partners) it wasn't an R/C airplane so I had to be very precise when I asked about it.

    right on, these are better than the wires.

    According to Sanderson Headers, one of the premier manufacturers of headers for the hot rod and performance car industry, even being a winner of manufacturer of the year from the Goodguys Street Rod organization. Something you won't get if your products don't fit right out of the box as advertised. The Buick Nailhead V 8 from 364 cubic inches through the 425 cubic inch engine all use the same exhaust spacing and the headers for one will bolt directly to any of the others in that category. 
    I hope this helps take some of the cloudiness of the header spacing and clear it up.

    In this shot it almost looks like a real one. I did say ALMOST. The lack of a big puddle of oil under it's the first clue that it's not a real one.

    There's a '41 Ford in the Under Glass forums that is painted a VHT engine paint gold that would look great on the new 'Vette with a transparent yellow top coat then clear.

    Nice! The only thing missing is the keys and exhaust smell.

    Nice job, good looking paint.

    If you want to build a detailed version why wouldn't you start with the re release of the AMT '63? Then improve it with details.

    iI did iit a little differently, I used a pin vise and drilled the wheels a little deeper, with the holes a little small it let me put the axle in only as far as I needed to.
  12. horsepower added a post in a topic Getting back to it with some Vettes!   

    Keep up with the practice, you're definitely improving with every job, the blue one is looking pretty good, I really like the color, could you give us the particulars on it? Keep building it's something you never get to where you can't learn something new, and sometimes you come across a trick no one else has discovered yet.

    I know at least one of mine will trade axles with the Rat Roaster kit, its closer than the one that comes in its box.

    Nice job, it's just to bad that this kit can't be lowered without substantial surgery required. 
    Oh sorry, it might be hard to understand me with my tongue stuck in my cheek like it is

    Since I know you will like the standard grille much better than the RS version, you can send me that one. I'm much more partial to it, that's the one my girlfriend (wife now) really wanted me to get back then, it's the least I can do to actually give her one now.
