  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    😊me too. Thanks for the continued interest. Thanks dude. Hi guys, pin strip masking complete and partial painting started. Thanks for looking in.
  4. 👍 The show had some pretty cool projects. It's the only 'reality' TV show I miss. Any idea where the car and the guy who commissioned 'The Car' build ended up? That was one crazy over budget build that went no where.
  5. You are correct Dan. it was built in Bradford Ontario, about 30miles north of Toronto. It was documented on the reality TV show. IIRC, once done it was taken to Saudi Arabi where it was unveiled.
  6. Brilliant looking build James!
  7. That looks factory, very nice work!
  8. Looks great from here Geoff.

  11. Good stuff, it'll be cool to see this in paint.

    Thanks for your concern. What makes you think that will happen?😀 The orange is laid down over a light great, which was laid down over Duplicolor primer. The grey was matt, it will provide good mechanical bond for the orange. Most builders don't understand the reason for the window set out in the paint instructions of the time line between coats and why you have to wait the 24-48hrs before you can recoat. The time line/window for repeated coats is to provide a chemical bond between layers. If you recoat out side that window you have to wait for the previous coat to gas off, then a scuff is needed in order to provide the next layer with a mechanical bond. This is part of the reason primers are a matt finish. If you have another concern I am happy to hear it. 😊 This isn't my first painting rodeo, 😀.

    Me too, thanks. I may have to, the orange has a matt finish. Thanks for checking in dude. It's going to be a BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH shoot. 😃
  15. Pat, did you scratch build the boat? Looks like it was a fun build.
  16. Super job on the interior, real nice looking build Craig.
  17. I'll be watching with interest. Good luck.

    First colour down. My limited experience with Fluorescent colours shows here. This stuff is super tranlucent and requires multiple layers to build up the right shade. It bleeds like a stuck pig and runs like a runaway train down hill. I'll have a few spots to wet sand before I mask the pin strips, oh well all part of the learning. The black might be down this week. Thanks for looking in.
  19. Great subject Dave, really looking forward to seeing this come together.
  20. Looking good, nice save on the steering wheel, and the CB really looks the part. I like your liquid masking/cutting trick. I use liquid mask all the time, except I trim out edges with ultra fine masking then use the liquid mask to fill in tough areas that would be next to impossible to use masking tape. I'll have to try your method, thanks for sharing.
  21. That looks great! It's begging to be in a dio.
  22. Great looking work, the paint looks real nice.
