  1. Good kit, only problem is the rear tail light fit. Best of luck.
  2. Is it unique, or based off an existing car? I have abloslutly no idea what it is.

    Love the paint! Real nice looking.
  5. Great under hood work, nice build.
  6. Fantastic looking caddi.
  7. Done for now. Next will be the dio but not for a while, this project has taken WAY longer then intended. Over all I am pretty happy with the end result.

    Thanks Bob, I tend to agree with you. I actually thought of that too, in reality there would be a car for everyday of the week. I did some more work on the bullet holes, trying to make them more believable.
  9. Wow, awesome work David, fantastic job on the box art build.
  10. This is really shaping up, I'm digging the wheels.

    I took the plunge tonight and gave the shell a good beating, um I mean weathering. No more fish eyes. I hope this comes together in the dio. Thanks for checking the progress out.
  13. 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.
  16. 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.
  19. Great looking build Jan, I dig the mural.
  20. Very nice looking low rod, the iridescent paint really works well on this.
  21. That really turned out fantastic great job on the weathering/chipping.
