  1. Man you are kicking serious butt on this build, real nice work.

    I can't see how anything that dissolves lacquer would not damage drying bondo. Perhaps setting 2prt putty might be ok given it is a thermoset type and actually goes through a chemical/structural change during the curing process. Sorry to disappoint, although I have to agree with you. I like the look of this too, which is why I have an idea to use it on another build, either a low rider or hot rod. 😊

    I've been lucky with stripping parts and shells, never had an issue. But, I have never striped a shell that has had an extensive amount of filler. The have left completed builds soak in DOT 3 brake fluid of over a year with no notiable damage to the plastic, even the windows and lenses were ok. The only effected parts have been the tire's (those off road dessert dogs) they turned hard. I have also left parts in Easy-Off for over a year with out any issue, windshield too. I have a 1940's panel van chopped project that went sideways from years back, it's full of spot putty, I am going to toss it in brake fluid to see what happened.
  4. Welcome back George. Where's pain, upper or lower? I like Charlie's idea of a sit/stand bench. I have major back issue too (fractured L5, last vertebrae) I tried a kneeling chair, that helped a ton.

    Thanks Bob, I have never tried stripping a shell with a ton of bondo. I think it will just eat the bondo. Do you have any experience with doing this? Given most of us are not Masters builders and seem to be for ever destine to be the willing apprentice I have decided to simply move forward on every build regardless of the issue and adapt and work with the issue at hand.

    Killer looking build Dale. Nice work on the paint and detailing.
  7. Great looking build Jan, I dig the mural.
  8. Very nice looking low rod, the iridescent paint really works well on this.
  9. This is really looking great Geoff, keep at it bro.
  10. Looking forward to the progress of this Adam.
  11. That really turned out fantastic great job on the weathering/chipping.
  12. Those sure are groovy man, lol, seriously great looking builds.
  13. It always a really pleasure to watch and follow your projects Bill. This is looking great and it's going to be fun to follow.

    😊I would agree with your assumptions about moisture i the tank, however I sprayed a test shell 20min earlier with no issues at all, plus I have a moisture trap at the AB. I could possibly redo the paint but not going to bother. The fish eyes look enough like bullet holes that I am going to weather them to fit the part. Thanks for checking it out.

    Thanks for the confidence and encouragement guys. I will figure out something. I have an idea for a dio that may include the fish eyes into bullet holes, so far a hand full of others including myself also think they could pass as gun shot. Given the paint is a disaster waiting to get worse I decided to shoot a holographic clear then a dusting of colour change paint. The car is going to get a good battle scare treatment, I just have to figure out how to go about doing that. Here are some shots of where we are now with the paint. Thanks for looking in.
  16. I agree. I personally have made donations or offered a donation to ever forum I have been a member on. Including this one. This site has gotten much much better over the past 7yrs. There was a time when you couldn't post on here without being shot down like duck in hunting season. A pay as you go seems a god rout, and would keep the free loaders (non builders) who only post opinions. I like the idea of a vested interest as in a pay to play format. Just me 2cents.

  18. Welcome Don. I grew up in Pickering in the 80's, Westshore area, went to Dunbarton high. Nice to see another Canuck on here.

    Kinda eh, I have an idea from this to do another paint job with this theme. Well this has taken a turn for the worst. 😑 In all my years of building and painting I have NEVER had an issue with fish eyes in my paint. This paint job has an accumulation of fish eyes that could be called a school of fish eyes. I know what causes fish eyes in general but this is ridiculous. I must have washed my hands in oil or silicone before I did all the masking. I am really hoping the two wet layers of polyurethane I laid down will allow me to wet sand them out. If I can't wet sand them out the checkered pattern might be a moot process. 😀
  20. As per the title. A building buddy is looking for a resin Dodge D-600 cab. I've done a google search without lany uck. Some of you northern/eastern boy may actually know him. His name is Rob, goes to a ton of model shows in the Michigan, Ohio, NY state areas. He only builds Mopars and 90% of his builds are crazy crazy weathered pieces. Thanks for the help. I know Rob will appreciate any leads.
  21. This sure has been an interesting thread with fantastic building and mods. I have picked up a couple ideas from this. Keep up the great work, looking very forward to seeing it in paint.
