      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Would this be the same, just in a new label?

    Thanks for the comments guys. The Mod Tops are either love 'em or hate 'em. When I'm at a car show and see one, I always find myself drawn to them.

    1969 Mod Top Dart
    Here is my 1969 Mod Top Dart. Started with the Revell 69 Dart, paint is Scale Finishes Bright Green., Mod Top material is decal from Ebay, Tires are hand painted redlines from AMT 1970 Z-28. Interior was painted Black and then shot with Semi-Gloss Clear from Tamiya. Top decal was a tricky to lay down, wanted to stretch, never had decal paper want to stretch like this before. The color started to come off the decal paper as well, so off it came and started fresh. I think it looks great next to my 1970 Mod Top Hemi Cuda. Next up will be a 1969 Barracuda Notchback with the Yellow Mod Top.

    Clear it. Make it nice and shiny. A lot people like the suede look but shiny is the way to go.

    Love the Ford truck. I assume that's the Foose 56. I've been thinking about Blue on mine as well. They all look great but that Blue Ford truck is killer.

    Bill, looks like you had better weather that day than when I was there. My wife and I were there on Friday. Have been going for years. Always a great show. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

    Moebius 1971 Ford Ranger
    Looking for something a little different, decided to go 2 tone Red on this. Started with Duplicolor Gray Primer, then Dulpicolor Burgundy Berry Metallic, then Tamiya Mica Red based with Tamiya Champagne Gold. I then spray Tamiya Clear over all.

    Moebius 71 Ford Ranger Bed Assembly
    For those that have built this truck, how did you handle gluing and painted of the pickup bed? I have been working on filling the injection markers on the inside of the bedsides and looking at how best to assembly the bed to be sure it is paintable. Have been leaning toward a 2 tone paint job. Any tips or suggestions?

    57 Mercury could lead itself to street and NASCAR. That would be cool.
