  1. Just think of how "uninformed" the average person is and realize that half of the population is even less so . That's as nice as I can put it . 😎
  2. Boy , this brings back memories , my first car was a 59 4 door sedan , dusty rose/ gray , 6 with a powerglide . Drove the wheels off it . 😎 Yours is beautiful .
  3. Yep , followed a lot of your builds , always impressed . Fantastic cars . I loved when you sliced up a Chevy and Merc to make a Buick . 😎
  4. Hey Steve , the picture I posted is of a 68 Corronet torque box , you can see the bolt arrangement on the wall of the box on the spring side and no provision for a shackle to bolt to the floor pan . I Googled "1968 Corronet Hemi torque box" .
  5. The torque boxes are a nice touch , now the front spring hanger just needs to bolt to the torque box , not the body . A small detail that might not be worth the effort , but noticeable . I've watched too many Graveyard Cars episodes . 😎
  6. We've lost an artist of immense talent , My he and his loved ones find peace .
  7. Fantastic work , Steve , need some belts for the rear passengers though . 😎
  8. .080" is only 2 " in 1/25 , need to find out what the actual size is then divide by 25 to get a size for the sprue or rod . The ones I've seen look to be about 3" , so .120" would be correct .
  9. Love watching these old races . Great looking car too .
  10. Nice looking sedan , yep , really a cool cruise . Watch out for those reflectors on the highway , they'll definitely take out the oil pan . 😎
  11. Now that's nice .
  12. beautiful , love some old modifieds .
  13. I drop things so much , I got tired of stopping and crawling around looking for them . I bought a grocers apron at the flea market and thumb tacked the bottom to the front edge of my work bench , when I sit down , I put the top over my head and have a nice little catch all in my lap . It's saved me a lot of time .
  14. I've had good luck with heating the spray cans before spraying . I have an old iron that I mount upside down in a vise set on low and just set the cans on it till I'm ready to paint . Shake the cans a couple of times as it heats up and just before spraying it to get a good mix and don't heat it hotter than you can hold . Heating it thins the paint and increases the pressure in the can .
  15. Nice to se your stuff again Dave , you're such a talented builder .
